The Oklahoma City Planning Commission recently approved Kimray Inc.’s plan to construct a new corporate headquarters on a 136-acre site at the northwest corner of Eastern Avenue and Britton Road, according to The Oklahoman.
The oil field equipment manufacturer will relocate about five miles north of its current location. Kimray’s new campus will enable the company to consolidate its facilities, which currently spread across 20 acres and multiple buildings.
Kimray Chairman & CEO Tom Hill explained in a statement: “Kimray’s products and services for the energy industry are known for their quality and dependability, which has allowed the company to grow significantly over the past 65 years. Very few companies have the opportunity to design their ideal space for the future and also impact a new area of the community in a positive way. We are excited for this change and what it will mean for our employees, customers and community.”
The move will accommodate decades of growth and improve the efficiency of Kimray’s operations.Initially the company plans to develop 30 to 35 acres of the property.
Hill added: “As we’ve done in our current location, we hope to create long-term, collaborative relationships with our neighbors. We are just beginning the planning process for the new campus, but we envision beautiful grounds that incorporate landscaping and other design elements to ensure our campus fits in with its surroundings.”
