An Ohio-based medical supply company has announced plans to develop a medical logistics and distribution center in Greenwood, if it can get a tax break from the city. Our partners at the Daily Journal reports Sarnova HC LLC intends to lease a 200,000-square-foot building on the city’s southeast side and bring in $8.5 million in material handling equipment and storage for the distribution of medical supplies.
The company says the move could result in 33 new jobs if the city council approves a more than $200,000 tax break. The publication says the redevelopment commission approved the tax abatement earlier this month, but the incentive must still get approved by the council in February.
Sarnova serves first responders and EMS companies. Three subsidiaries would run out of the Greenwood facility — Bound Tree Medical, LLC, Emergency Medical Products, Inc. and Tri-anim Health Services, Inc.
The publication says with the move to Greenwood, the company will close two other facilities outside the state.
