Commissioners approve tax abatement for Engineered Mobile Solutions

BATAVIA, Ohio (June 6, 2016) — Clermont County Commissioners today (June 6) approved an enterprise zone tax abatement agreement for Engineered Mobile Solutions, Inc.

Engineered Mobile Solutions will build a $4.38 million 80,000-square-foot facility at 4155 Taylor Road in Batavia Township. The company is currently located in the IRG Building (the former Ford transmission plant), also in Batavia Township.

Engineered Mobile Solutions will retain its current 51 positions with an annual payroll of $2.08 million and plans to add another 15 positions over the next three years for an additional payroll amount of $518,000.

Together with Batavia Township Board of Trustees, Commissioners approved a 60 percent property tax abatement for 10 years, saving the company approximately $720,000.

Engineered Mobile Solutions designs and manufactures custom trailers, shelters and mobile facilities for military, broadcast and commercial customers. The company has been in business since 2007.

Ed Humphrey, President of the Board of County Commissioners, said, “It’s gratifying to see a home-grown company such as Engineered Mobile Solutions succeed, and need to expand. The Commissioners are pleased that the company is staying in our county and providing job opportunities to residents here.”

Company President Bryce Johnson said he was committed to staying in Clermont County. “Our company is growing, and the tax abatement will allow EMS to put that money into hiring more workers and expanding our operations. We’re grateful that Clermont County and Batavia Township agreed to this abatement, and we believe our growth will benefit our community.”

Randy Perry, President of Batavia Township Board of Trustees, said, “Our township has a stake in the growth of Engineered Mobile Solutions. We’re pleased with this investment in our community, and the confidence it signals in Batavia Township.”

The project is scheduled to begin later this month.
