The Osage Nation has expanded its business interests by creating a family of companies focused initially on design build and construction management services, and information technology and consulting services.  Osage LLC is the parent company of two 8(a) subsidiaries:  Osage Pinnacle Design Group LLC, doing business as Tallgrass Construction Services and Osage Innovative Solutions LLC, doing business as Tallgrass Technology Services.  Both are based in Tulsa, Okla. and both are tribally owned 8(a) companies with HUBZone certification.  The Tallgrass name exemplifies the culture of the Osage Nation and is the brand being established to market the companies into the future.

After just one year of business, Tallgrass management says they are seeing strong momentum. The companies have won 11 contracts totaling $16.6 million.

“I am so pleased with the effort our team has shown and we are honored to have so many new customers purchasing services with our companies,” said Jim Holder, Executive General Manager.   “It’s very early in the life of the Tallgrass companies and this momentum will only grow, which creates value for our employees and for the Osage Nation.”

Phillip Morrow, Chairman of the Board of Osage LLC says our contracts currently represent a variety of customers including Native American, Department of Defense and other government agencies. We have established a strong presence at Tinker Air Force Base during the past year and are proud of this accomplishment, especially due to the fact that the base is named after General Clarence Tinker, who was a prominent citizen of the Osage Nation and a brave military leader in World War II.

The company currently is working for the Department of the Army at Fort Leonard Wood, Bureau of Indian Affairs at Fort Sill, Department of the Air Force at Tinker Air Force Base and Peterson Air Force Base and Osage Casinos.

Tallgrass Construction Services has recently completed other contracts with the Army National Guard of Texas at Camp Bowie and the Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation.

“We have a number of proposals pending currently and I am confident this early success will continue with additional contracts in the future,” Tallgrass Technology Services, LLC, Operating General Manager, Jill Jones said. “Our team is actively looking for additional work and we plan to grow the company sensibly as we win new business.”

The companies currently employ seven full-time and part-time staff and are currently expanding their teams. Additionally, the companies employ staff who work on-site at customer locations such as Fort Leonard Wood and Peterson Air Force Base.
