Italian tissue manufacturer Sofidel Group anticipates an early June grand opening for its $360 million plant in Inola, a spokesman for the company said. A total of 350 people will be employed at the 1.8 million-square-foot facility, which is expected to be fully operational by sometime this summer, spokesman Enrique Garay said.

In terms of sheer size, Sofidel’s footprint is among the most spacious in the state.

But the Rogers County facility is 38% bigger than the Macy fulfillment center built just north of Tulsa in 2015.
