Sisters based GFP Emergency Services, a shipping container revamping business has opened a new facility in Prineville, creating up to 90 new jobs for the area.


With Crook County having the highest unemployment rate in the state for the past four years, this is good news.


Russell DeBoodt with Prineville and Crook County Economic Development for Central Oregon says more companies are looking to Prineville to move to because of the people.  "The reason why they came to Prineville is really for our business climate. I think the City of Prineville and also Crook County is a very pro-business community. They're easy to work with and I think that that word is getting out to individuals in surrounding communities and also within the state that if you want to grow your business and work in a community where you're looking more for a partner than just a company to come in and put people to work; then Prineville and Crook County is the place to be."


DeBoodt says they have some great incentives that are not limited to big companies like Facebook.


He adds that there are several more businesses currently looking at the Prineville - Crook County area.
