Wood: City rebounds from industrial losses
Friday, April 26, 2019
Industrial and primary job growth in Bartlesville is evolving with the national trends of expansion, retraction and consolidation, Bartlesville Development Authority President/CEO David Wood said.
While the Bartlesville area has experienced some job loss over the past several years with corporate restructuring at Phillips 66 and ConocoPhillips, the trend seems to be steadying. However, the local economy also experienced some unexpected blows when Siemens announced they would be closing their Bartlesville facility to consolidate in Houston, Sitel closed their Bartlesville office and Walmart Claims Management also closed their facility.
