MidAmerica Industrial Park

MidAmerica Industrial Park (MAIP) is Oklahoma's largest industrial park, located in Pryor Creek, Oklahoma, United States. In 2020, over 80 firms were located within the industrial park including operations of seven Fortune 500 companies, such as Google, DuPont and Nordam.
The park was founded in 1960, when the US Federal Government sold most of the former Oklahoma Ordnance Works to a public trust, the Oklahoma Ordnance Works Authority. The rural park covers 9,000 acres (36 km2) and is located 47 miles (76 km) east of Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Urgent Care of Green Country (UCGC) opened their Pryor/MidAmerica clinic at MidAmerica Industrial Park on January 19, 2009. Independently owned, UCGC was founded in 2002 by Dr. Stephen R. Kovacs and Dr. S. Addison Beeson. The 4,400-square-foot (410 m2) facility includes a reception area, doctor's office, eight exam/treatment rooms, EMR (Electronic Medical Records), in-house x-ray, orthopedics and lab services. The clinic will treat employees from MidAmerica industries and area businesses that require occupational health services such as: in-depth diagnostic and treatment for most occupational injuries; drug testing; employee physicals; and, sports physicals. Additionally, UCGC offers “walk-in treatment” with no appointment necessary for the general public from throughout Mayes County.

Tulsa Life Flight, a helicopter ambulance service formerly based solely at Saint Francis Hospital in Tulsa, will open a second base of operations at MidAmerica Industrial Park's airport. Tulsa Life Flight was established in 1979. It was the thirteenth helicopter air ambulance to be established in the US and the first in Oklahoma. To date,[when?] Tulsa Life Flight has completed more than 42,200 accident free flights. The aircraft are owned and operated by Air Methods Corporation, the largest air ambulance corporation in the world. The firm contracts with Saint Francis Hospital to provide aircraft, pilots and mechanics.

In February 2020, MAIP opened The Center of Excellence in the refurbished space of the former OSU Institute of Technology Training Center, which closed in December 2018. The 250,000-square-foot (23,000 m2) Center is consortium-based and dedicated to technology, training and career opportunities.

In 2022, electric vehicle manufacturer Canoo announced construction of a vehicle battery production facility at MAIP, following a significant order from California-based fleet management company Zeeba. This followed its earlier announcement of a vehicle production plant at MAIP capable of producing 300,000 cars per year. In April 2023 the company announced that vehicle battery assembly, using basic battery components from Panasonic, would proceed at Pryor to fulfill a United States Department of Defense contract; and, while vehicle manufacturing was to start at an Oklahoma City location before the end of 2023, long range plans still included vehicle assembly at Pryor because the OKC facility would not meet full production needs.

Panasonic, which had earlier considered constructing a large battery manufacturing plant at MAIP before selecting an alternate site in Kansas, nevertheless signed an agreement with the State of Oklahoma in April 2023 to place another battery manufacturing facility at MAIP, but subject to resolution of certain funding issues.

MidAmerica publishes a quarterly newsletter called MidPoint to share "news, views and other information" about the park and the industries that it serves. A complimentary subscription is available to individuals who are involved in site-selection decision making for their respective companies.

MAIP has its own airfield. The MidAmerica Industrial Park Airport features a single 5,000-foot (1,500 m) asphalt runway which was refurbished in 2016.

In November 2012, Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin appointed David Stewart as the chief administrative officer of the Oklahoma Ordnance Works Authority (OOWA). He succeeded Sanders Mitchell, who had headed the authority for 35 years before retiring. Stewart was formerly president and chief executive officer (CEO) of Cherokee Nation Businesses LLC and the wholly owned parent/holding company of the Cherokee Nation, which is charged with the economic development and business diversification across the Cherokee Nation's business entities. Sanders Mitchell had been hired by OOWA in 1977 to serve as general manager of the industrial park. He was promoted to the position of general manager for OOWA in 1990, following the death of the original chief administrative office, board member and founder of the Mid-America Industrial Park, Gene R. Redden, who served in this capacity from its inception in 1961 until his death in 1990. [a]
