Claremore Industrial and Economic Development Authority (CIEDA)
Claremore is located 20 miles northeast of Tulsa in the heart of Rogers County. With direct access to multiple federal and state highway systems, an international marine port and an international and regional airport, the city is a true multimodal hub. Claremore is located in the heart of Rogers County, and is one of the fastest growing regions in the state. Serving as the county seat, the area provides companies access to a robust workforce of more than 90,000 potential employees.
The community is home to global manufacturing companies covering various industries, including aerospace and metal fabrication. It’s also a healthcare hub that includes two hospitals and numerous medical care facilities.
Home to Global Manufacturing Companies
2020 marked a major milestone for three Claremore manufacturers, with Axh air coolers, Pelco Structural and Pryer Aerospace each celebrating 15 years of local operation. Collectively these entities provide numerous quality jobs, investment in area schools and support the region’s overall sales tax base.
Other notable companies include: MST Manufacturing, Reading Truck Body and HydroHoist Marine Group Inc. Claremore is also proudly home to Baker Hughes’ state-of-the-art Artificial Lift Research and Technology Center, which is the only facility of its kind in the world.
The CIEDA-owned Claremore Industrial Park is home to approximately 250 acres of flat, greenfield sites to develop any size project. The proposed sites are located adjacent to paved road access, water, sewer and telecommunications infrastructure, allowing for an expedited construction process. The team is experienced in land development and the establishment of Tax Incentive Districts to structure opportunities that enhance employers' ability to get their products to market faster.
Devoted to Workforce Development
Claremore benefits from a skilled workforce pipeline, supported by numerous local institutions of higher education and two Career Tech systems serving the area. Individuals who prefer to enter the workforce directly can choose from a variety of registered apprenticeships.
Utilizing student placement, career simulation programming, and direct connections to employers, CIEDA is actively working to ensure Rogers County's students are engaged with future career opportunities.

Quality of Life
Claremore is a city on the move. It is home to innovate global manufacturing, quality education, annual festivals and college athletics. From its lakes to its parks and mountain bike trails, Claremore gives you more time to enjoy yourself. Home to Will Rogers and America’s Mother Road, Claremore serves as a popular tourist destination with five museums, internationally renowned mountain bike trails and an award-winning rodeo. Claremore provides its residents with the many unique charms of "small-town" life but is still only minutes away from many "big city" attractions.
In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, social distancing measures were implemented across the county, forcing businesses to close their doors to the public. In this time of challenge, Rogers County residents rallied together to shop small and support local businesses. The community ordered curbside from local restaurant favorites, purchased gift cards from area stores, and focused on helping its neighbors. As a result, Claremore was one of the few cities to witness a sales tax increase, despite the challenging economic times.
To help aid in implementing distance learning and support the need for increased internet bandwidth, hotspots, and electronic devices, a Claremore manufacturer donated $35,000 to four Rogers County Schools. The company targeted the donation toward easing the technology and access barriers impacting school districts.
