Taxes & Incentives
Our economic development team can offer and negotiate incentive packages to individually meet unique business needs. Together, the Claremore Industrial and Economic Development Authority (CIEDA), the City of Claremore, and Rogers County partner to provide innovative incentives and financing options for industrial and manufacturing entities.
The collaborative approach for fostering business opportunities and strong regional industry support have resulted in several successful attraction and expansion projects in our community.
- In partnership with the City of Claremore, CIEDA commissioned the construction of a $3.4 million dedicated electrical substation for Baker Hughes, today powering its flagship research and development facility for its artificial lift product line.
- The $1.4 million purchase of and reduced-price sale of an existing facility for expansion of AXH Air Coolers. Learn more about how the incentive options provided to AXH have supported the company's rapid growth, tripling its size and opportunities.
- CIEDA established a $350,000 Development Assistance Finance Agreement for equipment at NXT Nano Fiber Technologies, providing the company with the support needed to launch its operations in the Claremore Industrial Park.
- CIEDA purchased a vacant building, providing a lease option for MST Manufacturing, which allowed for quick start-up and flexibility of capital. As a result, today, MST serves an impressive list of aerospace leaders such as Spirit AeroSystems, Boeing, Gulfstream, Lockheed Martin, Triumph Aerostructures, and many more. Read more here.
