It’s not bragging to say that Pryor is well-connected: We were the very first city in Oklahoma to offer free community wi-fi (covering the downtown area from the north end of First Street to the far south). The infrastructure upgrade was funded by a grant from Google, one of the more than 80 businesses and industrial tenants at MidAmerica Industrial Park.
Since opening in 1960, MidAmerica has served as Pryor’s strategic connection to the global economy, providing benefits ranging from stable, well-paying employment to community and cultural support to key leadership in the mission of expanding and enhancing educational opportunity. (The donation of the land for the new $10 million campus of Rogers State University is just one “textbook” example.)
A leader in size, productivity and innovation:
At 9,000 acres, MidAmerica is one of the nation’s largest industrial parks, leading the global market in manufacturing, processing and distribution as home to premier Global 500 companies. In addition to Google, which has recently completed its second MidAmerica data center (one of only 8 centers located worldwide), other tenants include DuPont, Chevron and SYGMA, the wholly-owned distribution subsidiary of the Fortune 500 food supplier SYSCO.
One of the few industrial parks owned and operated by a self-sustaining public trust, MidAmerica is able to offer its tenants dynamic advantages in support, financing and responsive governance. Park-owned water and waste-water systems, along with low-cost power provided by Grand River Dam Authority, together help slash MidAmerica’s utility costs 20% to 70% over other locations. That makes MidAmerica a smart choice for businesses of all sizes.
Getting there from here: MidAmerica delivers.
MidAmerica helps tenants deliver, in a location near “America’s Crossroads” where I-35, I-40 and I-44 intersect, and with more than 70 trucking companies working onsite. (There’s also rail connection, and an onsite airport providing 24/7 service.)
The Park is also helping Pryor residents move ahead in the global market through the skills needed for 21st century success, with leadership that includes not only the Rogers State donation but also the upcoming MidAmerica Career Center, a key component of a community-wide talent pipeline to supply a robust and agile workforce for the future—and one more way MidAmerica is connecting Pryor Creek to a prosperous global future.
