Golf Cart Manufacturer Investing $4M, Adding 67 Jobs

Bintelli, an industry-leading low-speed vehicle (LSV) company, will open an assembly and distribution facility in the River Ridge Commerce Center to produce electric golf carts and other low-speed recreational vehicles. Bintelli will invest over $4 million into the region by leasing and improving a building in River Ridge and adding new furniture and fixtures. The location will also have up to 67 new jobs with an average wage of over $26.00 per hour, with the company providing training for each employee.

Bintelli started as the dream of Justin Jackrel in 2000, and the company has quickly grown to be an industry standard. The company currently has the largest LSV assembly facility in the United States in South Carolina and is also a five-time Inc. 5000 company. Their products include golf carts, electric bicycles, scooters and mopeds, parts, and accessories created from quality craftsmanship.

“Bintelli’s explosive growth over the last few years has been extremely rewarding,” said Justin Jackrel, President of Bintelli. “We couldn’t be more excited to expand our operations with this new facility at River Ridge Commerce Center, thanks to PRG Commercial Property Advisors and Avison Young for their comprehensive site selection and brokerage services. The proximity to our new logistics partner, Mister “P” Express, played a big part in choosing this location for our new assembly facility.  We look forward to opening our newest expansion and working with such amazing new regional partners.”

“From one successful American Dream story to another, Mister “P” Express is thrilled to welcome Bintelli as our neighbor at River Ridge Commerce Center,” said Cindy Collier, President & CEO at Mister “P” Express, Inc. “Bintelli’s expansion from South Carolina to River Ridge is a strategic move for the company’s continued growth, while also bringing a tremendous economic impact to our community. We can’t wait for our shiny, red 18-wheelers to haul the nation’s best electric golf carts, bikes, and gas mopeds all across the country.”

Based on the company’s job creation plans, the Indiana Economic Development Corporation (IEDC) committed an investment in Bintelli of up to $675,000 in the form of incentive-based tax credits. These tax credits are performance-based, meaning the company is eligible to claim incentives once Hoosiers are hired.

“We are excited to welcome another innovative, fast-growing company to the state,” said IEDC Chief Strategy Officer Ann Lathrop. “Here in Indiana, Bintelli joins a robust network of quality manufacturers and a statewide ecosystem committed to advancing a business climate that powers the growth and talent needed to succeed.”

“The City of Jeffersonville is excited that Bintelli has chosen the River Ridge Commerce Center as the location for their newest facility,” said Jeffersonville Mayor Mike Moore. “This strategic investment into our community will add 67 new jobs as well as position Bintelli and their premium recreational vehicle products for long-term success in this growing sector.”

“We want to welcome Mr. Jackrel and his team at Bintelli. Their investment showcases the strategic advantages offered by River Ridge and Southern Indiana,” said Jerry Acy, the executive director of the River Ridge Development Authority. “Bintelli has proven itself to be an industry leader in the rapidly growing recreational low-speed vehicle market and we are excited to partner with them as they grow here at River Ridge.”

“Bintelli brings a unique product to Southern Indiana and the surrounding regions,” said John Launius, Vice President and Director of Economic Development at One Southern Indiana. “Based on the growth that Bintelli has seen over the years, we are thrilled to have them in the region and can’t wait to watch their continued success as an industry leader.”
