AAON Inc. plans to create 125 new jobs over five years and build a new facility in Longview as part of a $28 million capital investment expansion.
The premium HVAC equipment manufacturer wants to relocate the manufacturing of its SA Series self-contained unit product from Tulsa, Oklahoma, to its Longview facility on Gum Springs Road, where 422,000 square feet of manufacturing space will be added within the next three years.
