Jackson, Miss. – 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.
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.
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. 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.
