Two Oklahoma companies could earn $3.8 million in state Quality Jobs incentives
An Oklahoma City oil-field service company plans to create up to 73 jobs over the next decade, and a Tulsa plant expansion could add 50 jobs.
Two companies are in line to receive up to $3.8 million in incentives over 10 years to create 123 jobs through the state's Quality Jobs Program.
Houston-based oil-field service and manufacturer FMC Technologies has qualified to receive up to $1.48 million in incentives to create 73 jobs at its Oklahoma City plant over 10 years.
FMC designs, manufacturers and services oil-field equipment such as surface wellheads and pressure fluid control equipment.
The company's Oklahoma City plant specializes in surface wellheads and began relocating employees there from Houston in 2012, FMC spokesman Patrick Kimball said.
The company plans to eventually have about 120 employees in Oklahoma City, including relocated jobs from Houston and the 73 positions it is creating, Kimball said.
The jobs mostly will be skilled positions relating to assembling and testing the oil-field equipment that FMC makes, he said.
Chicago-based Ambitech Engineering Corp. has qualified for up to $2.3 million in Quality Jobs funding for creating 50 jobs at its Tulsa plant.
Ambitech provides engineering, design construction management and other services to manufacturing companies.
