JMP Solutions recently completed construction on its new automation and robotics facility in Fayetteville which opened for business on March 1, 2022. The 20,000-SF manufacturing and integration space will provide automation and robotics solutions to the Northwest Arkansas region and create approximately 140 jobs over the next five years.
JMP Solutions is an Industrial Technology Partner to Fortune 1000 manufacturers and producers, providing engineering services and turnkey solutions in seven core areas: process automation, control system integration, information systems, automation and robotics, automated guided vehicles, material handling, and networking and security applications. With 17 business units in the U.S. and Canada, JMP services customers locally, delivering more than 30,000 solutions to 1,000-plus clients over the course of its 30-year history. In August 2021, JMP was acquired by private equity firm Crestview Partners.
In addition to automation and robotics integration, the company’s offerings include material handling, automated guided vehicles, and controls systems integration.
“We’re energized by the growth that we’ve experienced and the opportunity that it has afforded us to move forward with this new facility,” said Ray English, commercial leader of JMP’s Automation & Robotics Division in Arkansas. “This investment in Northwest Arkansas not only allows us to better serve our existing customers in this area, but it also gives other potential customers in the U.S. easier access to the automation services JMP provides.”
In addition to expanding its reach and providing greater access to its customers, the company said the new facility is positioned to provide ongoing skills development, technology training and continuing education to better recruit and maintain high-quality talent for the area.
JMP’s close relationships and partnerships with industry leaders in the region, along with the proximity of the University of Arkansas and other premiere vocational and technical schools, will make Northwest Arkansas a top training and development sphere for the next generation of automation innovators.
