Pipeline and welding equipment maker Sawyer Manufacturing Co. has built a new headquarters and added 10 employees over the past few months, the company and Tulsa Regional Chamber announced Friday.
Tulsa-based Sawyer, founded 65 years ago, has begun moving into the new center at 7799 S. Regency Drive. The company needed more space and is selling its facility at 1031 N. Columbia Place.
"Sawyer is only as a good as the folks that work here," company President Thomas Sawyer said in a statement. "I'm happy to say that Tulsa and the surrounding communities provide a workforce with outstanding work ethic and skills, which enables us to remain competitive in the global pipeline industry."
The company now employs about 40 people locally. Its services include pipe beveling, cutting machines, bending dies, lifting clamps, hooks and wrapping machines.
"Tulsa's manufacturing sector is among the healthiest in the nation, and the energy segment is producing the best economic results for our region," Mayor Dewey Bartlett Jr. said. "Sawyer's success and added workforce is contributing to that industry's health."
