Information technology services firm Mainstream Technologies of Little Rock on Thursday announced plans to open a second location in downtown Conway that will initially have 15 employees.
The company, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, said it aims to hire another 30 employees over the next five years.
CEO Johnny Burgess said in a news release that the new site "offers us the opportunity to expand our footprint in an area that is rich in both talent and vision." He added that some of Mainstream's employees commute to Little Rock from Conway and will be able to work closer to home.
Conway Mayor Tab Townsell called this deal "a perfect fit."
Little Rock Regional Chamber Chairman Jeff Hathaway said the moves shows "a perfect example of how a regional approach to economic development can benefit the progressive counties and cities, and the growing businesses, of metro Little Rock."
Mainstream Technologies has an office at 325 W. Capitol Ave. in Little Rock. Founded in 1996, the firm has been named to the Inc 5000 list of the fastest-growing, private companies in the U.S.
