Oklahoma City re-entered the world of aerospace manufacturing Friday with the ribbon-cutting of Kratos Defense & Security Solutions Inc.’s manufacturing facility on the city’s west side.
Kratos executives chose Oklahoma City after meeting with Rep. Steve Russell, Gov. Mary Fallin and other state and local leaders, Eric DeMarco, president and CEO of Kratos Defense & Security Solutions said.
"Kratos chose Oklahoma, with strong encouragement from its Congressional Delegation," he said. "The people of Oklahoma represent a highly patriotic, educated, and motivated workforce with the technical skills that will contribute to building the affordable but technology leading weapon systems needed for tomorrow's world. We could not be happier to be joining this cost-effective business environment and family-friendly community."
