Several hundred new truck drivers will be moving to Wichita Falls now that city leaders have given the green light for an incentive package for an oil field company to move to town.
Councilors unanimously approved a recruitment project of up to $2.3 million for Ulm Corporation.
The 4A Board approved the package several weeks ago.
And today, city leaders followed suit.
Yesterday, the Utah based company started operating its southern regional headquarters and distribution center out of the Old Penske building on Central Freeway East.
And chamber officials say Ulm's new operation in Wichita Falls will bring a big boost to the area economy.
"It will be about $88 million dollars in the North Texas Work Force delivery area. That's a 13 county area surrounding Wichita Falls," says Kevin Pearson with Wichita Falls Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
Ulm Corporation officials say about 50 drivers started hauling oil yesterday.
The company's goal is to hire a total of 372 people over the next three years, mostly truck drivers with a commercial driver's license.
