NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - A software engineering firm that hired its first Arkansas workers two years ago is expanding and hiring 45 new employees.

Exlyxor Inc. (pronounced ee-LIX-or) announced Tuesday it was hiring 45 new workers - taking the number of employees at its North Little Rock office from four people to 49. The company said the average salary for the new positions will be at least $60,000 a year.

The company was founded in 2010 in Boston and hired its first engineer in Little Rock in 2014. The state Economic Development Commission says the firm will receive a state income tax credit of 1 percent of total payroll for the expansion.

Gov. Asa Hutchinson said the expansion gives the state the chance to grow in the tech sector.
