Serva Group lets go of 13

DUNCAN — Serva Group LLC released this statement Tuesday from its plant manager, Glenn Davis, on recent layoffs:

“Due to the decreased business outlook for equipment manufacturing in the frac market and natural gas prices, on Friday, Jan. 11, Serva Group made the difficult decision to reduce its workforce by 13 employees.”

Kandi Benton, Payroll/HR Generalist, shared with The Banner via email, that Davis said this was a “very difficult decision due to the consequences on the employees that were affected.”

Serva Group has been based in Duncan for many years and employs on average, 60-65 people, Benton said. According to its website, it was established in 1977 and deals with design, manufacture and installation of equipment in the energy technology market on a global scale.

The company is located at 3600 S. 13th.

“The Duncan facility is a valued part of ServaGroup and it is hopeful that the business will improve quickly,” Davis shared in the email.

  • Governor, state Legislature have misplaced priorities

    If the Oklahoma State Legislators and our Governor spent less time interfering in women’s rights to manage their bodies, creating ways to lay more taxes and fees on the middle class in order to generate more tax breaks which benefit only the wealthy while also conceiving methods with which to fill Oklahoma’s for-profit prisons, they would be doing all of us a favor. Instead, why not work to enhance funding for our schools and wage increases for all school employees? While reforming the state’s educational budget, why don’t they approve wage increases for our Oklahoma State Troopers and enlarge their Academy to insure qualified individuals are ready to fill the upcoming vacancies as many of the older force retire?

  • Self government key to keeping politicians in check

    Last week, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 5-4 that federal campaign laws that limit the total amount of money donors can give to political parties, committees and candidates for federal office (U.S. House, Senate, and President) was unconstitutional. The ruling will not increase the current $2,600 limit on how much a donor can give to a federal candidate in each primary and general election or the $32,400 limit that can go to a national party committee. Those limits are still in place.  The ruling will instead remove the limit on how many candidates/committees to which a donor can contribute.
