t is the largest industrial park in Oklahoma. At 9,000 acres in size, it is also regarded as the largest rural industrial park in the nation. But, what is really important to prospects is the impact that MidAmerica Industrial Park can have on their bottom line.
When MidAmerica's management team tells prospective companies about their suite of competitive advantages, visitors welcome the news that can really make a difference to their company.
Perhaps it is the location. Equidistant from both coasts, MidAmerica is right at the intersection of two major interstates near Tulsa. "When we say that we are at the crossroads of the Wal-Mart Expressway and the NAFTA Transportation Corridor, most people have a pretty good grasp of where that is," said Sanders Mitchell, Administrator for the park. The park is bounded by both Highway 69 and Highway 412; two major four-lane US interstates that can deliver a "same day" logistics punch to nearly one-third of the nation. In addition, lead rails traverse many sections of the park and there's even an on-site Regional Business Airport that is jet-certified for most corporate business aircraft. Just 15 minutes away, an inland waterway port provides barge transportation as yet another option for year 'round convenience.
Maybe it is the cost and variety of utilities to be found on-site. There are two natural gas transport suppliers. The primary electrical provider to the park's industries has its major source of power generation on-site for more reliable service. There are two transmission substations and five distribution substations conveniently located throughout the park. It is a very competitive market for electrical service. Prospects can expect megawatts of savings compared to other locations in the Sunbelt.
Is water important? To major users, it can be a critical element of their operations. At MidAmerica, it can flow in abundance. The park owns both water and wastewater treatment plants. Rates lead the nation in affordability and companies that need a million gallons per day — or more — can be served without problem.
Seeking a skilled workforce? MidAmerica industries enjoy some of the nation's most productive employees. And, to assure that your labor force remains competitive in a global economy, you can keep their skill sets sharp at one of two nationally-regarded on-site training facilities.
Another competitive advantage includes a tradition of helping firms get more money to their bottom line. "We can often help a company reduce operating costs by 20-70% and that's a pretty big deal in challenging times like we have now," said Mitchell. Even MidAmerica's hometown has the dollar-stretching spirit. For several years, Pryor Creek has been listed as among the top ten for low costs according to the quarterly ACCRA Cost of Living Index. Recently, Pryor Creek regained the "Number 1" position in the nation for affordability.
For plant sites, MidAmerica has no shortage of options. Several spec buildings are almost always available. There's a 118,000 square-foot facility that served as a luxury motor coach manufacturing plant for nearly two decades. Two new 30,000 square-foot buildings are also available. Numerous Greenfield sites are offered, too — along with many "BuildNow" shovel-ready sites that enable companies to start construction immediately and avoid all the "red tape and zoning commission" issues. For example, Google chose a BuildNow site for a data center which became operational in September of 2011 as the latest part of their international data center network.
"When we search for a data center site we have very specific criteria such as the caliber of the work force, the right business climate and the infrastructure to support the power and technical needs of our operations. MidAmerica Industrial Park fit the bill and have surpassed our expectations," said Joe Kava, Google Senior Director, Data Center Construction and Operations.
The facility represents the newest in a fleet of highly-efficient Google data centers that uses half the energy of a typical data center. The company already has 106 employees with more to be hired as the data center campus grows.
Need more incentives? Come and get 'em. Oklahoma's Quality Jobs Program could be worth millions to qualified companies. Numerous other income tax credits, sales tax exclusions, and ad valorem exemptions are also available.
Founded in October of 1961, MidAmerica is now celebrating it's 50th anniversary. The park has a colorful history with milestones that include a Presidential visit from LBJ and many years of an on-site industrial trade show designed to introduce MidAmerica firms to the local community.
MidAmerica is governed by a board of trustees to oversee all business operations. The park has accrued a "blue chip" roster of over 80 companies that includes divisions of many Fortune / Global 500 firms. It has been recognized by leading economic development publications as a top-ranked expansion or relocation site for growing companies and has been named as a "Certified Industrial Park" by the Oklahoma Department of Commerce.
