Washita Valley Enterprises, Inc. brings 40 new jobs to the Louisville area

December 14, 2011 by  

Washita Valley Enterprises, Inc. is preparing for a January 2 opening of its newest plant, located in Louisville. The new business will bring approximately 40 new jobs to the Louisville area and is located on 14 acres of leased property at 3707 Tulane Ave. N.E.

Washita Valley Enterprises, based in Oklahoma City, serves the oil and gas industry with a focus on pipe delivery, inspection and inventory. In addition to its newest location, the company also maintains 10 locations in Arkansas, Texas, New York, Pennsylvania and Oklahoma. Emilee Wallace, compliance manager for the Department of Transportation and a member of the Washita Valley operations management team, states that the new plant will be located at this location for a significant time period.

New and expanding businesses typically find themselves in need of new business cards, stationery printing, and a number of other print services in order to establish a presence in a new location. Louisville area print companies stay busy providing these services for businesses located in the area. The introduction of expanding companies could mean even more business for these printing companies.

Wallis decided that the original Alliance location she scouted as a possible site for the company wouldn’t fill the needs of the business. Thanks to the quick thinking of Tom Pukys, Alliance Area Development president, Wallis was shown the Louisville location and found it to suit the needs of the company. Wallis stated a desire to hire local people for the available positions. Five local individuals have already been hired to fill support and management roles with the company.
