SLIM HANEY CELEBRATION:
Newton Box, owner of Slim Haney Machining, and his wife Patricia are happy as they cut the ceremonial ribbon to celebrate the success of the company, which has been in business for 54 years. The company has been in its current facility for 10 years and celebrates a milestone of breaking $10 million in sales. Also attending the event were members of the Tulsa Regional Chamber of Commerce, representatives from Congressman Bridenstine’s office, and employees, suppliers and customers.
Slim Haney was founded in 1962 by W.B. “Slim” Haney, who started the company in a small rented building on Sheridan Road in Tulsa with two Brown & Sharpe single spindle screw machines.
In 1985, Slim retired and sold the business to his son Gene. Bob Parrott was promoted and the result was a doubling of production.
In 2004, Newton Box officially became the owner of Slim Haney Machining, Inc., and Bob Parrott was promoted to vice president.
In 2006, Slim Haney relocated the operations to its current climate controlled 20,000-sqare-foot facility that sits on a 3.2 acre lot, at the corner of 5615 N. Mingo Rd. in Tulsa, where the ribbon cutting took place.
With the addition of new team members and calculated investments by Newton Box, Slim Haney is a growing company with a bright and prosperous future.
