Oklahoma City Council approves Kimray relocation

OKLA. CITY — Kimray Inc., a leading manufacturer of oil and gas control equipment, recently received approval from the Oklahoma City Council to move forward with plans to relocate its company headquarters. The new campus will be built on the northwest corner of Eastern Avenue and Britton Road, about 5 miles north of its current location.

“We are grateful for the decision of our city leaders to support our relocation to a new campus,” said Tom Hill, Kimray’s chairman and CEO, who is an Edmond resident. “We’ve been part of the Oklahoma City community for more than 65 years and are excited about our future.”

Hill said the relocation will allow for future business growth and improved efficiencies, as the company currently spans 20 acres of property with multiple buildings. The new 390,000-square-foot campus initially will be constructed on 30-35 acres and will house about 800 local employees.

“Kimray is proud to be an American manufacturer and we are committed to being a good community partner,” Hill said. “As we’ve done in our current location, we hope to create long-term, collaborative relationships with our neighbors. While we are still in initial stages of planning, we envision beautiful grounds for our employees and the community to enjoy.”

Kimray leaders plan to break ground on the new campus later this year. The company will transition its workforce to the new campus in 2016.
