Zebco may soon be adding jobs in Tulsa. That's because the company is buying the rights to a reel used in saltwater fishing.
They'll have to increase production and hire more workers in Tulsa to make it. In 2000, Zebco moved its operations from Tulsa to Asia and laid off hundreds of its then 400 employees. There are now about 160 Zebco workers in Tulsa.
No word yet on just how many workers they plan to hire, or when.
