Canoo bringing 2,000 jobs to Pryor’s MidAmerica Industrial Park

PRYOR, Okla. — Canoo announced a historic electric vehicle manufacturing investment Thursday, with plans to build its first mega micro-factory at the MidAmerica Industrial Park in Pryor.

“We ran a multi-state competition and invested millions of dollars to find the right manufacturing facility,” said Canoo Chairman and CEO Tony Aquila.

“Oklahoma was a head and shoulders above the other contenders because of its leadership, energy forward initiatives, strategic location and the hardworking ethic of its people,” Aquila continued.

Canoo’s mega micro-factory is targeted to open in 2023 and will include a full commercialization facility with a paint, body shop and general assembly plant.

The campus will also include a low-volume industrialization facility.

”At MidAmerica Industrial Park, we have been preparing for our next mega-employer for more than 10 years. We have made significant capital investments in speed-to-market capability by building new infrastructure, expanding shovel-ready sites, and strengthening workforce training, recruitment and retention,” said MidAmerica CEO David Stewart.
