Zebra Technologies of Lincolnshire, Illinois, on Tuesday marked the grand opening of its expanded facility in Bentonville.

The company, which tests and repairs mobile computers and barcode scanners used in retail and manufacturing, said it will hire a 100 or more employees over the next two years and lease an additional 13,000 SF of warehouse space. 

The company said it invested $3 million in the renovation and modernization of the plant, which is at 1201 SE 28th St.

The company said the expansion of the 80,000-SF plant allowed it to bring some repair services to Arkansas from Mexico, where it had outsourced some work to Motorola Solutions.

"Zebra is excited by the results of our expanded operations in Bentonville where our team has been instrumental in protecting our customers' investments with an advanced level of technical and repair service that have helped businesses achieve maximum uptime and peak performance with their Zebra mobile devices,” Zebra Technologies Vice President of Global Repair Operations Mike Underwood said in a news release.

The Arkansas Economic Development Commission said the expansion has qualified for its Create Rebate, an annual cash rebate based on the number of jobs at the plant, and Tax Back, which provides sales tax refunds on building materials, taxable machinery and equipment associated with the project.

Zebra's Bentonville facility diagnoses, tests and repairs mobile computers and barcode scanners to capture and track data in retail stores, manufacturing plants, warehouses and distribution centers. Zebra's general customer support, operations, quality and engineering associates also operate in Bentonville.
