Google has plans to set up shop in Pryor, Oklahoma and will build a data center in the MidAmerica Industrial Park (MAIP).

The local newspaper, The Daily Times, is reporting that Google will make an official announcement about their plans on May 2nd.

 On the MAIP Web site they boast that a company can save between 20 and 70 percent on utilities, which is part of the attraction Google sees in locating in Pryor.

When the deal with Google was still in the speculation stage, the local paper had this to report on the impact: "The possibility of Google coming to Pryor, the value that it will bring, not just to Mayes County, but the state … I don’t believe we can even imagine (the impact) right now as far as the kind of jobs that it could bring," said Pryor Area Chamber of Commerce Director Barbara Hawkins.

"We’re really excited about the possibility," she said Hawkins, adding it also validates the progress of the MAIP and the quality of life of Pryor and Mayes County. "That companies such as Gatorade and possibly, Google, are acknowledging and realizing that not only is our park extraordinary, but the people in our area as well."
