Following the recent bankruptcy of its largest customer, American Airlines, Blytheville's branch of Aviation Repair Technologies had to go back to the table, create a new business model and draw from the pockets of its investors to keep the doors open. Now, by the end of 2012, the company plans to have completed multiple construction projects and have its staff back up to 225 workers. Thursday, ART hosted members of the Mississippi County Quorum Court and other county officials for a tour of the company's facilities and a presentation on its new business plan.
