Apr 4, 2012

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Gov. Mary Fallin's office says Google will announce a new facility at its data center in Mayes County near Pryor.

The governor's office is holding a press conference Wednesday morning along with Google officials to announce the new facility.

Google's $600 million data center opened last fall, and it employs more than 100 workers. The facility is located in the Mid-America Industrial Park.

The announcement is set for 11 a.m. Wednesday. Fallin will be joined by Oklahoma Secretary of Commerce Dave Lopez and Mike Wooten, the operations manager of Google's data center in Pryor.
