Man dies in industrial accident in Armorel

Posted:

ARMOREL (AP) - Company officials say a man has been killed in an industrial accident at a plant in northeast Arkansas.

Officials say the accident happened Saturday at the Precoat Metals plant near Armorel. Company representative Andrew Farrant says the victim was a technician who was doing maintenance work on a crane.

Farrant tells the Blytheville Courier News that the man was pronounced dead after suffering a traumatic accident. No details were available about how the man died.

Precoat Metals bought the plant from Roll Coater in September 2011. The company has about 60 employees at the Armorel plant, which is a metal finishing and coating facility.
