TULSA – Governor Mary Fallin today joined officials to help Greenheck Group, a Wisconsin-based manufacturer of air movement, control and conditioning equipment, celebrate completion of phase one of its Tulsa campus.
The first phase includes more than 200,000 square feet of operational space and 20,000 square feet of office space that will open in January. The facility will support operations and distribution for Greenheck Group’s Accurex brand of commercial kitchen ventilation systems and its Tempered Air Products line.
“The Greenheck Group is a terrific corporate citizen that has created hundreds of high-quality jobs for Oklahomans,” said Fallin. “The state of Oklahoma welcomes Greenheck Group to our growing corporate community. The company’s ongoing investment in this campus is a great achievement and demonstrates the strength and potential of the Oklahoma economy. This is just another indication that our commitment to pro-business policies is retaining and attracting a wide variety of jobs and businesses to our state.”
“Tulsa has been an ideal partner for expanding our operations,” said Jim McIntyre, chief executive officer (CEO) of Greenheck Group. “We are ready to hit the ground running in 2019 with more in store. Tulsa’s talented workforce is ideal for our investment plans. Our partnership with the Tulsa Regional Chamber, Cherokee Nation, the governor’s office and the city of Tulsa has been vital to this expansion’s success. Since we started in 1947, the Greenheck Group has focused on continuous growth and innovation. These core values helped us climb to where we are today and will continue to aid our steps into the future.”
With the completion of phase one, Greenheck leadership also revealed renderings and details about the second phase of construction, which will include 160,000 square feet of manufacturing space for dampers and pneumatic relief valves. The campus will support more than 600 jobs once phase two opens for production in early 2020.
Greenheck Group employs more than 3,300 people worldwide, with manufacturing and assembly facilities in Wisconsin, Kentucky, California, Tennessee, Minnesota, North Carolina, and in Mexico and India.
“Greenheck Group is renowned for their commitment to being an employer of choice, and we are incredibly proud that such an exemplary company with a global presence would choose to locate in our community,” Tulsa Mayor G.T. Bynum said. “The city of Tulsa worked diligently with Greenheck leadership to ensure this project’s timely completion. We look forward to a continued partnership and mutual prosperity in the years to come.”
“Projects of this size and magnitude require cooperation between multiple public and private entities,” said Tulsa Regional Chamber President and CEO Mike Neal. “Tulsa’s Future, the chamber-led regional economic development partnership for northeast Oklahoma, facilitates this collaboration. We commend all the partners involved in this project, with special gratitude for the city of Tulsa’s timely infrastructure improvements. Since breaking ground last year, Greenheck has completed or started construction on nearly 360,000 square feet of manufacturing production and announced the creation of more than 600 jobs. We at the Tulsa Regional Chamber are thrilled to be partners in Greenheck’s prosperity.”
