Matt and Cyndi Hankins purchased D&N Machining in 2005. At the time, D&N employed five people and operated out of a 5,500 square foot shop at the previous owner’s house. The company is now located just off Highway 71 South in Greenwood, Ark., with 56,000 square feet and employs 44 people. 

The company’s versatility makes it unique compared to many competitors. It has the ability to produce very small to very large parts in mass quantities. The in-house design capabilities allow the company to make and design its own jigs, fixtures and equipment. Additionally, D&N* takes customer concepts from rough sketches to full 3D models and simulates the machining process on the model before actual production begins.

The company’s huge growth over the last eight years has presented many challenges. Luckily, the company has a very talented and knowledgeable staff who have overcome many obstacles. Without a good support system, the company could not be where it’s at today. The owners credit their family’s support and faith in God to help them get through the hard times.

Greenwood is a great place to live and raise a family, and D&N tries to give back to the family-oriented community. With the owners’ kids in the Greenwood School District, D&N is always proud to help in any way it can. Additionally, many employees live in the surrounding communities where the company is happy to help.

“Arvest has been there for our financing needs as we have grown, particularly in 2012 and 2013,” said a D&N spokesperson. “In mid-2012, we began construction on an approximate 32,000 square foot expansion and added some larger equipment to our roster. Arvest was very responsive to our needs.”
