A hot, summer morning at the end of July could not deflate the excitement of breaking ground on a new manufacturing facility.
“Today marks an exciting new chapter for Muncie Power Products as we break ground on a new manufacturing facility,” said Chairman, CEO and President Ray Chambers. “This new facility will allow us to better serve our customers and support market demand, while also providing the best possible working conditions for all of our employees at this location.”
Muncie Power has been proudly providing stability and jobs for many in Tulsa, Oklahoma, for over 30 years. In 1982, Muncie Power first began producing power take-offs in Tulsa after the joint partnership with Tulsa Winch, a division of Sperry Vickers. Later, in November of 1986, Muncie Power purchased the facilities in Tulsa and became a manufacturer. And now, on July 23, 2020, Muncie Power will continue manufacturing in Tulsa with this new facility.
“This is a huge investment for our employees and our community, which will continue to enhance our abilities to satisfy our customers,” said Senior Executive Director – Operations Doug Sullivent.
Not only will this new facility allow Muncie Power to better support market demand in the work truck industry, but it will also provide additional capacity for new manufacturing machinery, assembly equipment, and warehousing.
This primary manufacturing facility will be 250,000 square feet and the first phase of construction is scheduled to be completed in the spring of 2021.
“I am really excited about all the possibilities and improvements that our new manufacturing facility will provide our employees,” said Sullivent. “I am honored to be part of this new chapter in our company’s history.”
Muncie Power continues to move forward to be more innovative in the market.
