More Jobs Coming with Alfa Laval Expansion in BA

Alfa Laval

On Aug. 1, the City Council approved an economic development agreement that supports Alfa Laval's expansion of its facilities on South 9th Street. Alfa Laval manufactures heat exchangers at the 17.5 acre site.

“It’s a pleasure to be partnering with the City of Broken Arrow and the State of Oklahoma, as we expand our manufacturing capabilities for the Alfa Laval Spiral and Air Cooled Exchanger ranges of industrial heat transfer equipment,” said John Atanasio, president and CEO of Alfa Laval USA. “Our aim is to develop a ‘competence center’ which will include a new and efficient facility for our Spiral heat exchanger manufacturing, and an updated site for our ACE range of products.”

The development will be 21 acres east of Alfa Laval’s current location. The expansion will occur in two phases. The first will add 68,500 square feet of space for manufacturing, warehouse and office space. This phase will begin in January 2018 and last approximately a year and a half. Once complete, Alfa Laval will hire 120 new full-time employees bringing them to 234 employees.

The second phase of the expansion will begin in May 2023 and last about 14 months. It will add another 220,000 square feet of manufacturing, warehouse and office space. It’s estimated this phase will bring in an additional 147 new full-time jobs, bringing Alfa Laval to 381 employees in Broken Arrow by summer 2024.

The City of Broken Arrow has committed $500,000 for engineering and construction of an industrial access road on the south side of the current Alfa Laval property. The Oklahoma Department of Transportation will pay for the remainder of the access road.
