Oklahoma Department of Commerce

Oklahoma’s central location and multi-modal transportation system make it a premier location for manufacturing operations – which is why more than 4,200 manufacturing firms operate in the state. Our incentive programs, low taxes and utility rates and cost of doing business mean manufacturers can improve their bottom lines by operating in Oklahoma. Twenty Oklahoma colleges and universities offer manufacturing technician-related programs. Our colleges and universities utilize public-private partnerships focused on growing talent and innovative ideas to solve industry-related challenges. In Oklahoma, vocational education and training is done through our CareerTech system which projects more than 10,000 manufacturing-related program completions over the next five years. With 59 campuses statewide, CareerTech also works hand-in-hand with Oklahoma companies to develop customized programs to train current and future workers – often at little or no cost to the company.
