We support economic development across Oklahoma and Arkansas and are leading the way by partnering with businesses and communities, and positioning them for continued success. In the last few years, we’ve worked with the Commercial Metals Company on their development of a steel mill in Durant, OK, with Archer Daniels Midland on their construction of a flour mill in Enid, OK. and supported Dal Tile’s plant expansion in Muskogee, OK. We’ve also partnered with the Niagara Bottling manufacturing plant in Oklahoma City as well as Glatfelter’s engineering materials facility in Fort Smith, AR.
