OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - An attorney helping organize an M-G auto
manufacturing plant in Ardmore says the project is moving forward
despite comments today that the deal is off.
Norman attorney Marc Nuttle says he's just returned from China
where he was working to finalize agreements for the plant. His comments come after a media report earlier today which indicated there are no more plans for the plant in Oklahoma.
Nuttle says plans for the auto plant remain on schedule and Wes
Stucky of the Ardmore Development Authority says work continues to
make the auto plant a reality. And a joint statement from the development authority, the state Department of Commerce and the Greater Oklahoma City Chamber of Commerce says they are committed to the project.
The statement calls the project complicated - involving individuals and companies on three continents; a foreign government; and a former company in bankruptcy.
The plans call for the plant to open sometime next year.
