The expansion is creating 15 additional local jobs.
Tactical Medical Solutions was founded in 2003 by former Army Special Forces personnel and medics. The company supplies customized kits and emergency response supplies to support federal agencies, law enforcement agencies and medical personnel nationwide as well as internationally.
