Aristocrat has broken ground on its new Tulsa Operations Center in Oklahoma, which will offer a consolidated campus for VGT Class II Innovations’ 300 employees.
Aristocrat Gaming has broken ground on a new 137,500 sq ft facility, further illustrating its long-term commitment to the Tulsa, Oklahoma community and the Sooner State’s gaming industry.
“This is more than a ground breaking – it’s a celebration of our employees, our community, and our industry,” said VGT president James Starr. “As employees, we live here, we work here, and we want to see Tulsa succeed, not just for today; we want to be generational partners, and this new facility will allow us to continue to serve our customers even better.”
The company’s new Tulsa Operations Center will offer a consolidated campus for the 300 employees of VGT Class II Innovations by Aristocrat Gaming and will house light manufacturing, a warehouse, and office space.
“We are doubling down on our commitment to Tulsa as our host community, to Oklahoma, and the community of customers we serve across the state,” affirmed Aristocrat’s president of Americas and EMEA Hector Fernandez. “That is why we are making this 10-year commitment that will lead the community into the future. Oklahoma is important to us as a company, and we are committed to helping our customers and our employees succeed.”
Also appearing at the event were Oklahoma Indian Gaming Association chairman Matthew Morgan and SVP customer order execution Deanne McKissick.
“We’re thrilled Aristocrat, a global leader in gaming technology, innovation, manufacturing and distribution, is expanding its presence in Tulsa,” said Mike Neal, president and CEO of the Tulsa Regional Chamber. “We’re proud to partner with them as they make significant investments in their company and northeast Oklahoma.”
The new campus will be located at 15336 E Admiral Place South in Tulsa and will be comprised of a warehouse/production space of 112,500 sq ft and office space of 25,000 sq ft. The project is underway, and the warehouse is expected to be completed this winter, while the office space is expected to open spring 2022.
