BROKEN ARROW – L-3 AMI and the State of Oklahoma today celebrated the expansion of their L-3 AMI division facility in Broken Arrow.
The L-3 AMI division facility in Broken Arrow designs and produces a wide range of hardware products for use in simulators, training devices and other applications. AMI duplicates any type of cockpit, workstation or control console to a high-level of fidelity and then delivers it to prime government contractors for final system integration.
In March 2014, L-3 Link added 60 jobs to the Broken Arrow site. The Broken Arrow location now has 207 employees. At the new location, L-3 Link plans to hire 30 employees. L-3 has about 1,400 employees in Oklahoma and about 45,000 worldwide. Work at the Tulsa location, which is across the street from the Broken Arrow site, will consist of making helicopter simulators for the U.S. Navy.
“The support that L-3 AMI has received from both local and state entities has been invaluable in assisting our Broken Arrow facility to grow its workforce and gain the resources needed to continue to expand our business,” said Leonard Genna, President,Link Simulation and Training for L-3. “Due to this support, we have been able to fill positions within L-3 AMI that are critical to the fulfillment of contracts, enabling us to continue that work for a number of years. We recognize that the state supports our expansion efforts and is a key reason why we have been able to maintain and grow a stable workforce.”
“L-3 is a world class company that continues to bring high-tech, high salary jobs to Oklahoma,” said Governor Mary Fallin. “Their continued expansion and success is great news for Broken Arrow and the entire state.”
Genna also added, “Governor Fallin has been greatly engaged in supporting these growth efforts, underscored by her meeting with L-3 at the Paris Air Show, in addition to her sustained efforts on our behalf to invest in new facilities in Oklahoma communities while growing the size of our workforce. Oklahoma is very competitive in providing a welcoming business climate, an attitude that has been demonstrated by both the Governor and Broken Arrow’s Economic Development Corporation.”
