West Fargo, N.D.-based wind tower manufacturer DMI Industries has formally acquired a building at 15300 Tiger Switch Road in Tulsa, Okla., for its new wind tower production plant, which is expected to be operational in early 2008.

In addition, the company says that it plans to employ about 450 people at the new plant and is currently seeking at least 200 employees to begin operations on opening day. DMI plans to hire the vast majority of employees locally, including welders, painters and steel plate rollers, as well as general management, supervisory, human resources and administrative personnel.

Tulsa employees will be trained on-site and in the company's West Fargo and Fort Erie facilities. When it is economically feasible, DMI adds, the company will engage local and regional suppliers to meet the plant's day-to-day operational needs.

The Tulsa plant will feature half a million square feet of production space. According to the company, DMI's annual tower production from the Tulsa plant and two existing facilities will support a total of more than 3,000 MW of installed wind project capacity, based on today's tower and turbine technologies and designs.
