Hadn't heard of the company before, but glad LOKI

is moving here.
LOKI Weapons Systems, Inc. will hold its ribbon cutting ceremony today at 11 a.m. at the old Wrangler plant in Coalgate. Local leaders, including Gumm and Rep. Paul Roan are expected to be in attendance.

Gumm and Roan, who represent Coal County in the Legislature, wrote legislation in 2004 to create the Oklahoma Firearms Manufacturer Recruitment effort. LOKI Weapons Systems, Inc. is one of the first companies to locate in Oklahoma based largely on that recruitment effort.

Sounds like "double good" news - a local firearms manufacturer and a vacant building filled. Will this mean new local jobs, or an influx of new folks that already work for them?

Either way, sounds like a win, congratulations to your community!
