Officials say a new oil and gas pipe manufacturing plant will bring at least 180 jobs to Norfolk.

NORFOLK, Neb. (AP) — Officials say a new oil and gas pipe manufacturing plant will bring at least 180 jobs to Norfolk.

CEO Charley Havens announced at a news conference Wednesday that OCT Pipe, of Rockwall, Texas, had chosen Norfolk over other locations.

The company expects to break ground soon on its investment of at least $125 million and begin operating in mid-2017. It intends to buy steel from the Nucor plant in Norfolk to make pipe for the oil and gas industry.

The company will be applying for tax incentives available through the Nebraska Advantage Act.
