Emergency medical transportation solutions company OnDemand Specialty Vehicles is locating its production operations in Jumpertown. This project is a $470,750 investment and will create 17 new jobs.
“More and more companies are realizing that if you want to build a quality product, Mississippi is the place to do it,” said Gov. Tate Reeves. “Our state never gave up on manufacturing and that mindset has paid dividends for Mississippians across the state. Congratulations to OnDemand Specialty Vehicles on this exciting announcement. Prentiss County is open for business.”
Headquartered in Knoxville, Tennessee, OnDemand Specialty Vehicles operates as a subsidiary of Priority OnDemand, a leading EMS and medical transportation provider. With a national service reach, OnDemand Specialty Vehicles specializes in delivering medical transportation solutions to municipalities, counties, hospitals and healthcare facilities.
“As a native of Prentiss County, Mississippi, and the community where I began my EMS career, I am excited to be able to expand our company presence in Jumpertown,” said Bryan Gibson, Chief Executive Officer, Priority OnDemand. “The community has been welcoming and we are excited to locate OnDemand Specialty Vehicle production operations in Jumpertown.”
Given Priority OnDemand’s annual demand for approximately 100 new ambulance units annually, OnDemand Specialty Vehicles is poised to become the primary production source for these units,” said Prentiss County Board of Supervisors President Matt Murphy. “The trend of economic development for Prentiss County over the last several years is continuing. On behalf of the Prentiss County Board of Supervisors, we welcome OnDemand Specialty Vehicles as the newest partner in that economic growth. The Board appreciates the company’s investment in our community and people.”
The company has secured a lease and is upgrading a facility in Jumpertown, which will serve as a dedicated production site, ensuring timely delivery of essential medical transportation units to meet customer needs.
The Mississippi Development Authority is providing assistance through the Mississippi Flexible Tax Incentive, or MFLEX program.
OnDemand plans to begin production this fall.
