Google, Inc. announced today the purchase of the former Gatorade plant located adjacent to their Mayes County data center in the MidAmerica Industrial Park.

“The purchase of the idled facility across from our data center is a logical choice given our ongoing partnership with the MidAmerica Industrial Park” said Mike Wooten, Google Oklahoma data center operations manager. “MidAmerica continues to be a strong partner for us here in Oklahoma and we appreciate their proactive and pro-business approach.”

David Stewart, Administrator for the Mid-America Industrial Park said the purchase of the facility by Google is a good sign for the park and the area. “We are pleased Google acquired the facility which has stood vacant for over three years. Google’s ongoing investment in the Park since its opening in September 2011 underscores the company’s importance to the area’s economy and the continued and growing demand for Google’s services and products.”

The company has no immediate plans to develop the building or site.
