Manufacturer bringing 600 jobs to Stillwater

(Continued)

STILLWATER — Monday morning’s announcement in Stillwater coincided with an announcement by Gov. Mary Fallin and ASCO officials at the Farnborough International Air Show in London.

“Oklahoma was the best location for our facility,” said Christian Boas who is the CEO for ASCO Group. “The state is centrally located in North America and has an existing aerospace industry which is thriving. Oklahoma has a highly skilled workforce which specializes in our industry and the state has offered us assistance in training our new workforce.”

The air show runs all week, but companies traditionally make big announcements on Monday.

“I am thrilled to welcome ASCO to the Oklahoma community,” Fallin said. “Oklahoma has one of the strongest aerospace sectors in the U.S., and we are quickly becoming an international destination for the industry.”
