OKLAHOMA CITY – Governor Mary Fallin applauded today’s announcement by Koch Nitrogen Company, LLC that it will begin construction in mid-September on a $1.3 billion expansion project at its Enid facility:
“Koch Nitrogen's $1.3 billion expansion in Enid will mean hundreds of new jobs for Oklahoma families,” said Fallin. “The company's continued commitment to Oklahoma illustrates the success of our pro-growth policies, which include low taxes, sensible regulations and a commitment to public education that produces skilled workers. I am excited that Koch has chosen to make this investment in Oklahoma that will continue to generate even more great jobs and opportunities for our citizens."
The project will be implemented over the next three years and will increase production capacity by more than 1 million tons per year. The project will employ up to 1,000 contractors during the 18-24 months of construction, according to the company. In addition, 50-60 permanent employees will be added to support the expanded facilities.
