The (Oklahoma City) city council approved up to $80,000 in economic development incentives for a plastics company that plans to expand its operations in Oklahoma City. McClarin Plastics intends to add 58 new jobs in Oklahoma City within five years, according to a memo to the council from City Manager Jim Couch.
McClarin, of Hanover, Pa., specializes in design and manufacturing of highly engineered, molded plastic assemblies, according to its website. It has interests in transportation, construction, renewable energy, medicine, agriculture and railroads. Prominent in images on its website are wind turbines.
Couch’s memo says McClarin has manufacturing facilities in Washington state and Alabama. Its Oklahoma City plant is to serve markets in the southwestern and central United States. Couch said the company’s latest expansion is part of a pattern of continual growth, and that there is “strong potential” for additional expansion.
