Alfa Laval Announces Expansion



The Broken Arrow Chamber of Commerce recently announced that Swedish company Alfa Laval is expanding in Broken Arrow, with plans to create a “competence center” for the manufacturing of its spiral and air cooled heat exchanger ranges. The company will expand its existing facility, located at 1202 S. 9th St., to house the operations for the Alfa Laval Spiral Heat Exchanger range.

The center will provide a greater critical mass of welded heat exchanger design and manufacturing expertise. The new facility will have expansion potential to accommodate future growth.

Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) has been a focus of the Broken Arrow Chamber and the Economic Development Corporation for several years, said April Sailsbury, Broken Arrow Chamber senior vice president. “This brings with it the potential for primary job creation in the community.”

The project, which will begin this year, is expected to be completed by the end of 2018. Further details about this project and its positive impact on the community will be announced at a groundbreaking event planned for later this summer.

“Alfa Laval’s decision to concentrate some of its manufacturing in Oklahoma showcases that our state has much to offer international companies,” said Governor Mary Fallin. “We have positioned ourselves well in the global marketplace, and I am pleased that they have chosen to invest in our state.”

Alfa Laval is a leading global provider of specialized products and engineering solutions, based on its key technologies of heat transfer, separation and fluid handling. The company’s equipment, systems and services are dedicated to assisting their customers in optimizing the performance of their processes. Alfa Laval’s solutions help their customers to heat, cool, separate and transport products in multiple industries world-wide.
