MUSKOGEE — A steel fabrication and finishing company on Tuesday announced a $3.5 million expansion that is expected to create 30 jobs over the next three years.
Advantage TerraFab LLC has bought a 55,000-square-foot building at 400 S. 45th St. East in the Muskogee Industrial Park. Founded in 2011, the company currently employs about 45 people and leases three Port of Muskogee buildings totaling roughly 50,000 square feet.
Dan Morris, president and CEO of Advantage TerraFab, said the new facility is next door to parent company Advantage Controls, which will allow it to bring both businesses together on one campus.

“Buying this building just made sense to us,” Morris said in a statement. “We are nearing capacity at our existing facility. This move will give us more room to grow and will bring our team members closer together.”
The firm expects to be fully operational in the new building by June.
Muskogee Mayor Bob Coburn praised the company’s announcement.

“We are pleased Advantage TerraFab has chosen to expand and deepen their roots in Muskogee,” he said in a statement. “Their decision to grow here is a testament to our region’s skilled workforce and business-friendly environment.”

On Tuesday, the Muskogee City-County Port Authority Board of Directors OK’d up to $110,000 in local incentives for the company through its Strategic Investment Program.

The SIP is funded by a grant from the City of Muskogee Foundation and allows the port authority to consider incentive awards to companies with qualifying job creation and/or investment in new or expanded facilities.

Advantage TerraFab is the eighth business to be approved for incentives under the program. To date, three companies have received incentive payments in return for more than $175 million in new investment made in Muskogee.
