»Alive and Well: Oklahoma companies are thriving (May 6th, 2011 - 02:32 PM)
“We don’t see the same cyclical dips as other industries,” he said. Saving money amid rising costs has increased business at Blumenthal Manufacturing, an Oklahoma City company that remanufactures engines to current specifications.

“It’s easier for vehicle owners to replace a transmission than to take on the cost and burden of a new vehicle,” said Harry Brown, the company’s marketing manager. Blumenthal has increased its staff between 25 percent and 30 percent in the last three years to service contracts with the Oklahoma City Fire Department, Oklahoma City Public Schools and the Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Department.

A contract with UPS in seven states and U-Haul nationwide has kept the company’s staff busy, Brown said. “When money gets tight, it’s easier to repair,” he said. Manufacturing companies are prospering because Oklahoma diversified its economy into more stable industries after so many years leaning on the oil business to keep it running, Holmes said.
