It's not a new company to Jackson, but its bringing new jobs at a new location downtown. It's Anesthesia Business Consultants. The company provides business consulting and billing services to anesthesiologists.
The company started with only a couple employees in a home on Michigan Avenue in Jackson back in 1979. It has moved several times over the years to different locations on Michigan Avenue.
It tripled its size last weekend when it moved to the home of the old Jacobson's Department store, also on Michigan Avenue.
"It's exciting to be in downtown Jackson and watch how the company has evolved. Now we want to be part of the downtown growth and make Jackson more vibrant," says company C.E.O. and President Tony Mira.
He also says he never thought his company would be located in what used to be one of his favorite places to shop. He says the move was possible thanks to help from local economic and city leaders, and more businesses should take advantage of opportunities in Jackson.
Jackson Mayor Martin Griffin says the proof is in the numbers. In the next few years Anesthesia Business Consultants will get more than $1 million in tax breaks. He says, "Jackson has the best community planners in the state. They will go the extra yard, the extra hundred yards to bring businesses to this community."
Meanwhile Anesthesia Business Consultants is looking to hire new employees for clerical, customer service, supervising, and administrative positions. If you are interested in applying call (517) 787-6440, and ask for Human Resources.
