TISHOMINGO, Okla. -- The largest grant in decades is providing an economic boost for Johnston County.

Nitro-Lift Technologies will see its building triple in size thanks to a matching $1 million Community Development Block Grant.

The investment will allow the creation of 30 high-paying jobs.

"You've got to be skilled at this, so it is a great opportunity for Johnston County to add more employment so our young people stay here and don't move to Dallas and Oklahoma City," said District 2 Commissioner Mike Thompson.

Construction on the Nitro-Lift expansion is expected to begin by August.
