BOONEVILLE DEMOCRAT: Senator tours soap factory

Written by Press Release

August 15, 2019

Senator John Boozman made a stop in Booneville last week during a two day tour of western and southwestern Arkansas.

Boozman’s stop here on Monday was to tour the Stirling Soap Company, located on Broadway, and followed stops in Fort Smith at the River Valley Food Bank, Rheem Manufacturing and the fire station at the Fort Smith Airport.

Here, Boozman talked with Stirling owners Rod and Mandy Lovan about their company’s history and witnessed the creation of both bath soap and the company’s primary product of shave butter.

“We could not have been more honored to have Senator Boozman choose to stop by and spend time with us,” Rod Lovan said. “He and his staffers were extremely personable and we enjoyed giving them the tour of the shop and explaining what we do and how we got to where we are today.

“It was good to have someone in his position show a real interest in small business in rural Arkansas.”
