Google puts off opening of center in Pryor

Pryor_Construction on a $600 million data center for Google in Pryor is nearing completion but the opening of the plant is being delayed.  The center called a "server farm'' was to open in Midamerica Industrial Park with about 100 employees and eventually expand to about 200.  It is to be part of a chain of servers across North America and Europe.

But Google Manager of Community Affairs Matt Dunne says there isn't enough demand currently to open the center. Industrial park administrator Sanders Mitchell says he's not concerned about the delay and says he believes demand will increase and the plant will open.
