Tinker Business & Industrial Park

Welcome to "Oklahoma's Intellectual Property"

As a sector-specific business park, TBIP is home to a dynamic, 40-plus member aerospace cluster of top-tier defense companies who are located alongside a growing number of academia and aerospace industry representatives. Aerospace/aviation, telecommunications, environmental services, cyber security, unmanned and autonomous systems and advanced manufacturing are our main areas of focus. At TBIP, you will find flexible leasing strategies which provide cost-control for competition on contracts, a quality environment at below-market rental rates, and a dedicated management team ready to assist you in every possible way.

Location map of TBIPNot only will your company benefit from unequaled geographical proximity to Tinker Air Force Base and the Oklahoma City Air Logistics Complex (OC-ALC), but monthly networking opportunities and other strategic meetings and events provide one-on-one access to key public figures, Tinker Air Force Base officials and national, state and local lawmakers.

You will quickly find that we’re so much more than just a "landlord." TBIP is all about business development and mission accomplished.

What do TBIP and the Aerospace Collaboration and Partnership Center (ACPC) offer that our competition does not? The simple answer is an aerospace cluster of public and private companies, individual and education/training entities and facilities existing nowhere else in the State of Oklahoma. Others can duplicate brick and mortar, but NO ONE can replicate this synergistic model of over 40 private sector companies, plus labs, research universities and related government agencies, all working together with common visions for Oklahoma and our world-class aviation industry.

With two campus locations and more than 30 years of service, along with access to Green Valley Farms Living Laboratory, a 3,500-acre venue for technology innovation and entrepreneurial opportunities for commercialization (see GVF LL tab), no one can match the value-added benefits you’ll find at TBIP. That’s why we’re the largest concentration of high-technology companies at any one location in the state of Oklahoma!

Why Oklahoma?

The estimated population of Oklahoma as of 2018 is just under 4 million, ranking 28th of the 50 states by population, and 20th by size (square miles). With five military installations, a large National Guard presence and the FAA Mike Monroney Aeronautical Center all located in Oklahoma, aerospace and defense is the second largest industry sector or “ecosystem,” according to the Oklahoma Department of Commerce. Aerospace and defense is a $12 billion business exporting to 170 countries, and directly employing 121,000 people in our state, and the annual economic impact of the Aviation & Aerospace Industry in Oklahoma is almost $44 billion. The five military sites located in Oklahoma account for 5 percent of all Oklahoma wages and salaries, collectively employing more than 69,000 with a total payroll of more than $3 billion in FY 2010. Tinker Air Force Base is the largest military Maintenance Repair and Overhaul (MRO) facility in the world, and the world’s largest commercial MRO is located in Tulsa. Central Oklahoma is not only an aerospace and defense MRO hub, but because of its size, a company based in central Oklahoma has manageable proximity to all five of the military installations.

"Moog Inc. has been at the TBIP for approximately 10 years. During that time, our business has grown, we have hired additional people and now require a large warehouse area. Based on years of being involved with the TBIP, our choice was to remain with TBIP. TBIP management worked with us to secure the perfect location for our business. Their management was helpful in securing a contractor to do the renovations and to insure it met all of our needs. They went above and beyond in working with us to complete the move in a timely manner. The same dedication has been provided to us with their willingness to take care of any issues that might arise with regard to housekeeping, weather and grounds maintenance.

TBIP supports their tenants with networking luncheons, inviting speakers from various organizations to share their take on current events. This is extremely helpful in growing our business. The TBIP is only 5 minutes from Tinker AFB. The close proximity to the base allows Moog to be immediately available for any support required by our customers.

We would highly recommend the TBIP as a potential location for business, particularly Defense Contracting."

Choctaw Defense

"Choctaw Defense moved to Tinker Business & Industrial Park a little over a year ago as part of our long term strategic planning. Being located in the TBIP defense cluster has allowed Choctaw Defense to forge relationships with other defense contractors, resulting in potential partnerships and business opportunities we would not have had otherwise.

Additionally, the Tenant luncheons and events have provided beneficial access to Tinker Air Force Base’s leadership, as well as both state and federal legislative delegations – with the opportunity to share information specific to our defense-related lines of business.

TBIP’s management is well connected, and works hard to facilitate business opportunities for their tenants. The pro-business relationship between TBIP’s management, industry and Government leadership is unique to the commercial leasing space and has proven to be an added benefit you will not find at other office locations. TBIP’s strategic focus on aerospace and defense has definitely been a contributor to Choctaw Defense’s continued success."
