The company chose to expand to Oklahoma because of its central location, which will enable it to service customers on both coasts, as well as internationally, Ferra CEO Mark Sherrer said in a statement.

“Oklahoma's competitive cost structure, business friendly environment and strong existing aerospace supply chain made it a natural choice,” Sherrer said.

Gov. Mary Fallin, who is attending the Paris Air Show, joined with Sherrer to announce the expansion.

“Oklahoma is one of the premier destinations for aerospace business in the entire world,” Fallin said in a statement.

“With the experience, expertise and infrastructure in place, we see the potential for even greater growth.”
