The city of Tulsa added a near record-setting 907 jobs in January.

Verizon announced 500 jobs for a new financial services hub and Borets Weatherford unveiled plans for a new research and development center that will bring at least 30 jobs to Tulsa.

SWEP, a heat exchanger maker, plans to add up to 75 jobs by 2015, as it brings its new North American headquarters to Tulsa.

The jobs were added as part of the chamber-led "Tulsa's Future Plan," which has created nearly 13,000 jobs since 2011.

The goal is to create 10,000 jobs with annual salaries of at least $50,000.

So far, they're about 70 percent complete.
