Manufacturing & Construction

The silent giant, thatís the role played by Tulsaís energy-related manufacturing and construction segment. Anybody who has spent time in Tulsa understands at least some of the history, culture and current status of the oil and gas exploration/production business in this city. But most still are unaware that the service side of the energy sector now outpaces E&P in terms of overall employment numbers. Whether itís the construction of oilfield pumps, assembly of giant heat exchangers or the tiniest components, Tulsaís army of welders, machinists, mechanics and others make this city the second largest enclave of energy-related blue-collar workers in the nation.

This list, which will rotate regularly, is only a few of the companies engaged in this segment of the energy industry in metro Tulsa.
