OKLAHOMA CITY – Governor Mary Fallin today joined officials with Oklahoma City-based UE Manufacturing to announce the creation of 150 new jobs through the opening of a new manufacturing division.
UE Manufacturing, a division of United Holdings, is a global supplier and manufacturer of oilfield service equipment. The company’s new expansion will focus on remanufacturing previously used equipment.
“As governor, my number one priority is to create the best business environment possible to help bring more jobs and investment to Oklahoma,” Governor Fallin said. “It’s always exciting when the results of our work to foster a better business environment can be seen in the expansion of an existing Oklahoma company. I want to congratulate UE Manufacturing on their new facility and thank the company for their continued investment in Oklahoma.”
The UE Manufacturing expansion was recently approved for the Quality Jobs Program. The company plans to add more than 150 new jobs and invest almost $3 million in equipment and building improvements at the new facility.
“UE Manufacturing is proud to have its roots in Oklahoma and is looking forward to continuing our success in this new facility,” said Bill Moore, president of United Holdings.
