Entry Level Jobs Created by M&M Manufacturing
A local machine shop is expanding, creating some entry level jobs. Visit http://www.experience.com to learn more.
M&M Manufacturing, located in Tulsa, Okla., recently announced its plans to add mroe than 80 jobs at its new location in northeast Tulsa. Many of the new manufacturing jobs in Tulsa will be entry-level positions.
The expansion will triple the company's work force to about 120 employees within one year, according to an article by Tulsa World. M&M, which has been around for eight years, also hopes the expansion will position the company as a major aerospace supplier to the area.
Entry-level jobs at the factory will start at a salary of about $13 per hour, while some of the new jobs will have top salaries of up to $60,000 per year. All full-time jobs at the company will include medical benefits and retirement plans.
"We're trying to make a significant economic impact and be one of the bigger machine shops in Tulsa," Ken Statton, M&M president and founder, said in the article.
The company recently signed a lease for a new 45,000-square-foot building on East Admiral Place to replace its old headquarters near 51st Street and Mingo Road. The new headquarters and shop is about six times larger than the old one. The move is costing the company about $145,000.
M&M primarily makes parts for aerospace suppliers such as Nordam Group and GE Aviation. It also makes some parts for the automotive, medical and oil industries. The company was started by Statton in 2000 and has operated as a small machining shop in Tulsa for years, while doing work for larger suppliers.
The company hopes the new capacity and an upgradted certification will make it a major player in the local manufacturing sector. The certification gives M&M the ability to sell parts directly to major manufacturers such as Boeing Co. and Spirit AeroSystems Inc.
"We're a small company that is trying really hard to bridge the gap and be a bigger player in Tulsa," Statton added.
