TULSA, Oklahoma -- There's good news for Tulsa's economy. An Oklahoma company plans to add about 100 jobs in Tulsa.

Word Industries Fabrication is opening a new division and needs workers.

The company specializes in building and assembling piping systems used in the Natural Gas and Oil industries. The jobs range from sales representatives and welders to specialized technicians.

Phase One of the development will be a 40,000 square foot manufacturing facility, located at 1150A North Peoria in Tulsa.

"It fully utilizes state of the art manufacturing equipments that will improve flow of product through the fabrication process," CEO Tom Word said.

Word said Phase Two will expand fabrication services at the Port of Muskogee.

"Our mission is dedicated to provide leading natural gas exploration companies with products and services that will meet their specifications and requirements," he said.

The company said it plans to apply for the state's Quality Jobs Program, which gives companies a cash rebate of up to 10 percent for new jobs that average more than $94,000 a year.
