Best known for its wealth of natural gas and oil, Elk City continues to be an attractive business and industrial destination. With a capable, diverse workforce and an ideal location, this area is marked for success. Whether a company is large or small, family or shareholder-owned, the Elk City Chamber of Commerce makes doing business even easier. The Elk City community is a place where people get involved and take action, and as a picturesque and charming area of western Oklahoma, Elk City continues to attract modern-day businesses, as well as shoppers, tourists, college students, naturalists and history buffs.
Elk City’s strategic location halfway between the east and west coasts of the United States on a major thoroughfare places the community in an inevitable position. This is just one of the many factors in why companies continue to select Elk City as the site for distribution/warehouse facilities and other transportation-sensitive operations. More than 30,000 vehicles per day travel through Elk City along
the I-40 corridor.
In addition, Elk City has several industrial parks, some adjacent to I-40, with easy access and utilities in place. These geographic advantages, along with generous state and local incentives, have prompted many site locators to pick Elk City as the place to improve their firms’ bottom lines.
