There are so many things to be thankful for this year: family, friends and of course, industry and manufacturing. Well, in our world, these are the things we are thankful for. With Thanksgiving next week (eek, how did that happen?) to kick off the season's happenings, make sure you leave plenty of weekend time to explore all the events right here in Ponca City. And check out the alignment from industry & manufacturing to those events. Service, retail and entertainment are all built on the backs of industry and (in our community), manufacturing. So, if you know someone working at Dorada, Mertz, MJ&H, K&C, CME, CPM Bliss, Log10, Centerline, Century Products, Head Country, Cookshack, QuarterTurn, Source Fabrications, Cadrex or any of our industry businesses, tell them thanks.
Thanks for supporting the Poncan Theatre having first run movies this weekend. Thanks for supporting the sports teams (Go Wildcats!). Thanks for letting your team members volunteer and support local organizations like Ice on the Plaza which opens this weekend and The Festival of Angels Lights which open next week And especially thanks for bringing in those dollars to the community. As the year winds down, and the holidays wind up, now is the time to be thankful for the industry and businesses existing and thriving here in Ponca City. Have a fantastic Thanksgiving, be safe and enjoy the holidays.
From our Staff to yours.
In The Airport Industrial Park
A Ponca City industry target is food and agriculture. These industry members include Dorada Foods, Cookshack, Head Country, CPM Bliss, Log10 and most recently, Century Products. Century Products continues to grow and add products to their list of ag supplies; All while expanding their team numbers and their physical locations. But nothing is cooler than seeing their huge rotational molder in action.
How cool? So cool, it impressed a company on a site visit to Ponca City this week. Staff is always singing the praises of our manufacturers, and Century Products fits right into our existing group of excellence. Click here to see their machinery in action
