Siemens to Open U.S. Wind Service Distribution Center in Oklahoma.
"Oklahoma has demonstrated a growing commitment to renewable energy development and we are delighted to become resident members of the Woodward business community," said Tim Holt, Siemens' CEO for Renewables Service. "The need for this large distribution facility clearly indicates the wind industry is maturing rapidly, creating new jobs and new development opportunities. Woodward's location in the central region of the U.S. gives us great access to our wind power customers in that area and allows us to address their distribution needs in a cost-effective and efficient timeframe. We would like to thank Governor Mary Fallin, the Oklahoma Department of Commerce, as well as one of our key customers, Oklahoma Gas & Electric, and the Woodward Industrial Foundation for their invaluable expertise, guidance and support during this process."
