Chickasaw Nation has partnered with Ardmore Development Authority, Knightsbridge Partners and Watco in a $124 million development that will transform Ardmore Industrial Airpark into an international, multimodal logistics hub. The new Global Transportation & Industrial Park (GTIP) will accommodate transload, storage, distribution and manufacturing solutions for a broad range of industrial and retail products.

The GTIP includes more than 200 acres of shovel-ready, build-to-suit land in the heart of Chickasaw Country, about 90 minutes from Oklahoma City and Dallas/Fort Worth. The site is strategically located between many of North America’s largest business centers: New York, Chicago, Atlanta, Houston, Los Angeles, Mexico City and Toronto. U.S. Rep. Tom Cole has called the project “a game-changer, not only for Oklahoma but for the entire country.”

The site features direct rail access to a BNSF Railway main line, a fully functional airport with 9,000-ft. and 5,400-ft. runways, quick access to five major highways and uncongested air and ground traffic flow. As an approved U.S. Foreign-Trade Zone, GTIP can accommodate global commerce. Recent electrical, telecommunications, water, sewer, and natural gas improvements position the park for immediate development.

A Billion-Dollar Economic Impact

GTIP will account for thousands of jobs. Estimates that range from 8,402 to 18,653 will have labor income totaling as much as $1.2 billion. The overall development and operations are estimated to generate a total economic impact to Oklahoma of anywhere from $1.7 billion to $3.8 billion.

This project is supported by government agencies across Oklahoma, the City of Ardmore, Carter County and numerous other public and private stakeholders. We are pleased to add the Chickasaw Nation’s support to this major revamp of an underutilized asset.
