Commercial EV builder Orange EV deployed its first electric truck in 2015, and now claims to have 450 terminal trucks in use by more than 130 fleets.
Now the company has announced plans to establish its new corporate headquarters and manufacturing operations in the Turner Logistics Center, an industrial park under construction in Kansas City, Kansas.
Orange EV expects to move to its new HQ in mid-2023. The 400,000-square-foot facility is being designed to produce as many as 1,800 terminal trucks per year in single-shift operations.
“With this additional capacity, we will be able to ramp up our capacity to deliver on our mission to [replace] the dirtiest on-road vehicle with a zero-emission vehicle while also providing overwhelming savings and improved operations for our customers,” said co-founder and President Kurt Neutgens.
“Our new site enables us to continue to extend our market leadership in EV terminal trucks and begin development of new products and services for the electric truck industry,” said co-founder and CEO Wayne Mathisen.
Orange EV is currently looking for assemblers, warehouse employees, engineers and other personnel.
