The Muskogee Port Authority has approved an incentive grant for a company at the port which plans to expand and hire more workers.

In a news release, the port authority said Global Machine Company located on Old Shawnee Road recently announced it would be expanding its fabrication operation and hire 24 additional employees over the next three years.

"We received a large purchase order for new vessel fabrication which has ties to Eagle Ford and Bakken oil fields which will enable us to have the equipment to pursue these new contract opportunities," said Justin Parry, operations manager for Global Machine Company.

The company says it will use the $76,190 grant from the port's Strategic Investment Program for access road improvements at its facility.

"Muskogee has touted itself as being business-friendly for many years. Now with the creation of the SIP incentive program, we can demonstrate that goodwill by encouraging businesses to make investments such as these that will increase our local tax base and create new jobs in our community ", said Marie Synar, acting director of business and economic development for the Muskogee Port Authority.
