Through careful planning, J.M. Mullis, Inc. can produce a project location plan suited to a company’s specific needs. The key aspects in developing a plan for a company include:
Frequently, companies have to make decisions regarding expansion and/or relocation that have to be completed on an accelerated basis. The use of J. M. Mullis, Inc., the project location specialist firm which focuses primarily on project location analysis work, minimizes the risk. The firm’s in-depth knowledge of labor markets, location conditions, and the Client’s specific operational needs, enables the firm to quickly and accurately prepare a qualified project location analysis; whereby, the Client can proceed with its physical project development schedule in the most accelerated, yet cost effective, manner possible.
Project location selections will affect the profitability and growth of companies. Location selections must be very qualified ones, based on defined pertinent criteria, and the locations’ ability to meet those needs. The firm has no biases and/or vested interests toward any particular part of the U.S., or world, and basis its recommendations on experience, hours of professional research, and on-site evaluations.
One of the soundest reasons for the engagement of J. M. Mullis, Inc. is to avoid the distraction of a Company’s management group from its normal functions and daily operations, yet maintaining position in the decision making process. J. M. Mullis rapidly becomes an important member of the Project Location team, quickly discerning a Client’s specific needs and identifying potential location related issues and potentially qualified geographies.
Once a proposed project’s pertinent detailed objective and subjective criteria are formulated, the firm will analyze all aspects of a project location, maintaining frequent contact with the Company, until such time that the location candidate finalist group has been selected.
It is virtually impossible for a Company to conduct its own project location analysis in complete secrecy; and secrecy may be absolutely necessary for the success of the proposed operation. J. M. Mullis, Inc. conducts a project location analysis on a very confidential basis, thereby lessening a company’s possibilities for premature public exposure, disruption or demoralization of its on-going operations, or the loss of key personnel.
By comparing a proposed project’s pertinent criteria vs: several potentially qualified location candidates, J. M. Mullis, Inc. can make a final recommendation to the Client of three (3) to four (4) choices of very qualified candidates. Once the Project Team identifies the preferred location candidate, the firm conducts the final negotiations for all required items, including real estate and incentives; prepares the Performance Agreement; and assists with the initiation of the process of merging the philosophies of the Company and the selected community.
