The Broken Arrow Economic Development Corp. announced Thursday that Broken Arrow's Alfa Laval is moving its manufacturing work from Tonawanda, N.Y. t
The announcement will result in 30 new jobs in Broken Arrow with an average wage of $66,000, including benefits.
Alfa Laval says the move will help the company leverage its existing factories in the Broken Arrow area, "creating a center of excellence for air-cooled heat exchangers while maintaining sales, engineering, service, and support in the Buffalo region."
“We are pleased to see an already thriving manufacturer in Broken Arrow announce their expansion plans by moving business from New York to Broken Arrow,” said Jennifer Conway, president and CEO of the Broken Arrow Chamber of Commerce and BAEDC. “Broken Arrow and the State of Oklahoma have continually demonstrated our commitment to the expansion of Alfa Laval over the years by investing in public improvements to ensure they had the access they needed for continued growth.”
“Alfa Laval is proud to have the opportunity to partner with the Broken Arrow community to continue to grow our business,” said Brandy Moore, general manager of the Alfa Laval Air Group. “The support we get from the community and state have enabled us to be competitive and support our customers throughout the hemisphere.”
“Because of the pro-business environment here in addition to the support Alfa Laval and our suppliers receive, we expect this area to remain a great place to grow our manufacturing for years to come.”
Alfa Laval officials said wet surface air coolers and the newly released HYAC hybrid air cooler products will continue to be manufactured and supported "using the same standards and quality that customers have come to expect from Alfa Laval’s team of heat transfer specialists and service professionals.”
