ROLAND, Okla. (AP) -- An Arkansas-based company that makes jet engine stands is moving across the state line into Oklahoma.

C.E. Aerospace of Fort Smith is moving to Roland and bringing 60 workers. Company owner Cal Edwards says plans are to hire another 60 employees by the end of the year.

The company produces 19 different engine stands that hold engines in place for repairs and maintenance.

C.E. Aerospace plans to move into the former Therma-Tru door plant that shut down earlier this year and left 220 workers unemployed.
