A newly formed transportation logistics company, Logistyx Technologies, is moving its headquarters to Tulsa, which could bring up to 50 jobs over the next 18 months.
The company’s CEO Kevin Cox told the World in an interview Friday morning that his company chose Tulsa over Chicago because of state incentives and the advocacy of local politicians, including U.S. Sen. James Lankford, as well as the Tulsa Regional Chamber and Oklahoma Department of Commerce.
He said the Oklahoma 21st Century Quality Jobs program was a “determining factor” in the decision for the company to locate its headquarters in Tulsa.
“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 Gov. Mary Fallin in a statement.
