Snap-on Equipment is investing in a $1.5 million remodeling of their Exchange Avenue building.
The new storefront, lobby and front office will be remodeled as a long-term investment in the business and its employees.
Snap-on will be working with local architects and contractors at Crafton Tull and Salter Construction, respectively.
The Conway City Council approved Snap-on for a local retail tax-back incentive for locally-bought material and equipment for the remodeling at Tuesday night’s meeting.
“It’s an honor to be able to host our board and show off our facility, and in particular to show off the people that we have working here,” Scott Champlin, Snap-on’s local resource and service manager said.
The Conway facility is involved in engineering, training, manufacturing and sales/service support for the company’s US, Canada and Latin American operations. It is the North American headquarters of Snap-on’s Automotive Service Equipment division.
