An aerospace company expands with a move to a new facility at Tulsa International. A ribbon cutting ceremony is held today in the new center for L-3 Aeromat. The company moved from Jones-Riverside, and General Manager Gary Ball says it gives them the additional space they need for possible future expansion. The renovated facility is more than 90,000 square feet and a building for engineering, laboratory and testing space, and two hangars.
The company provides aircraft modification and airborne mission support for military, scientific, and special missions.
Talks continue about how to fund aerospace improvements in Tulsa County. No final decision is yet made on what package,if any,to bring to voters. Business and political leaders agree something must be done to upgrade facilities for the airport and aerospace companies located in the area. County Commission Chairman John Smaligo believes his idea to extend the Vision 2025 program is gaining momentum.
Whatever decision’s made, time’s running out. Smaligo says to make the November ballot, action must be taken on a plan no later than early August.
