(TULSA, Okla.) – Logistyx Technologies, a new logistics software company, announced it will establish its global headquarters in Tulsa.
Advanced Distribution Solutions, Inc., Agile Network and Pantechnik International merged to create Logistyx Technologies, which currently has around 12 employees in Tulsa and several more employees globally. The company represents more than two billion annual parcels and 5,000 carrier relationships, and it serves businesses and consumers across North America, Europe, the Middle East and Asia-Pacific.
The Tulsa Regional Chamber and the Oklahoma Department of Commerce partnered for the business attraction project, and Tulsa was one of many cities vying for the headquarters.
“We are extremely pleased with Logistyx Technologies’ decision to locate their global headquarters to Tulsa,” said Brien Thorstenberg, senior vice president of economic development for the Chamber. “Their expected growth will bring diversified, high-paying job opportunities to our region, and we will continue to partner with them and assist them in recruiting and retaining a skilled workforce.”
“With operations in Singapore, Amsterdam, Toronto, and throughout the United States, we had no shortage of options when determining the location of our corporate headquarters,” said Kevin V. Cox, CEO of Logistyx Technologies. “We decided upon Tulsa as the location based on the focus the state is placing on the high tech sector, the 21st century jobs program, and its central location.”
The announcement will bring an additional 30 to 50 high-paying jobs to Tulsa over the next 18 months, with plans for substantial growth over the next three years.
“The formation of Logistyx Technologies global headquarters in Tulsa is a testament to the positive business climate that exists in Oklahoma and is a natural fit with our state’s logistics advantages and growing tech industry,” said Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin. “The addition of 30 to 50 high-paying jobs brings increased opportunities for Oklahomans and is another example of how the Quality Jobs Program is a benefit to our citizens and our economy.”
The Oklahoma Quality Jobs Program offers incentives to qualifying businesses making new payroll investments of $2.5 million or more.
