Forty-three years after locating in Broken Arrow, the Alfa Laval Air-Cooled Exchangers company is expanding.
Known historically as ACE, the firm announced this week its expansion, indicating a “competence center” will be located on land adjoining the existing operation. The center will house operations for the Alfa Laval Spiral Heat Exchanger range.
“Alfa Laval’s decision to concentrate some of its manufacturing in Oklahoma showcases that our state has much to offer international companies,” said Gov. Mary Fallin. “We have positioned ourselves well in the global marketplace and I am pleased that they have chosen to invest in our state.”
Alfa Laval has become an international supplier of products for heat transfer, separation and fluid handling. ACE was founded in 1964 and acquired by Alfa Laval in December 2012.
Its products are used in a diversity of industries including the manufacturing of food, chemicals, sugar, ethanol, nuclear power, marine vessels, mining, refineries and wastewater treatment.
ACE’s core market is wellhead gas compression but the company’s air-cooled heat exchangers are used in the entire oil, gas and power spectrum.
