Greater Oklahoma City is in the geographic center of North America equidistant from the east and west coasts and major trade partners of Canada and Mexico. The ten county region is at the crossroads of the U.S., sitting at the heart of three major national highways on the NAFTA corridor.
There's a reason Greater Oklahoma City is such a great place for business: Location. The ten county region is positioned within a day's drive of the rapidly-growing south-central region (OK, TX, AR, LA) projected to grow more than 44% during the next 25 years.
Oklahoma has a strong aerospace infrastructure, with 54 state-of-art training centers across the state.
In Oklahoma, one in 10 employees derives income from the aviation industry, with an industrial output of nearly $12.5 Billion a year.
