Duncan Machine Products (DMP) is expanding its operations to add aerospace to its repertoire of metals manufacturing. In 2019, DMP attended the Paris Air Show as part of the Oklahoma delegation, landing a contract in aerospace as well as several leads.
The company recently dedicated a new building on its campus to meet growing needs in the area.
“Now that it’s completed, in just a few weeks machines will be moved in there to start working on these aerospace contracts,” Deal said. “They’re continuing to expand and while the oilfield environment is still choppy, they still get a lot of oilfield work, but they’re diversifying in metals manufacturing. Duncan has some of the best metal manufacturers and that’s their passion.”
The company, which has been in business for 11 years, is a full-service precision manufacturing company specializing in metals manufacturing, primarily in the energy and aerospace industries.
Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt was on-hand for the ribbon cutting ceremony.
“Everything comes back to commerce,” Stitt said. “Everything comes back to growth. I really want Oklahoma to be a Top Ten state. We can do it in our state. We take second to no other state. I remind everybody that Oklahoma is a step above Texas.”
During his remarks, Stitt talked about his experience with the company during the Paris Air Show and the work they put in while they were there. He said growth like this is the goal for Oklahoma.
“These folks got a contract … while they were there, they got some other good leads and that’s what it’s all about,” Stitt said. “We had a great Oklahoma booth, we set up and we brought all these companies in. We want to do the work right here in Southwest Oklahoma. Aviation is a huge cluster for our state, we’re going to continue to build on that.”
