Area Development Online News Desk (01/08/2014)
GreenTech Automotive, a U.S. automotive manufacturer dedicated to developing and producing environmentally friendly, energy-efficient vehicles, began construction on its new production facility in Tunica, Mississippi.
GTA currently operates a pilot manufacturing facility in Horn Lake, Mississippi, where it builds MyCar, a two-seat Neighborhood Electric Vehicle, and GTA's new four door, All-Electric Sedan. Both vehicles produce zero emissions, provide segment leading range per charge and can be recharged via a common 110V wall outlet, a 220V wall outlet or fast charging stations.
"GTA's permanent manufacturing home in Tunica has been taking shape on the ground level for several months now, and we're looking forward to seeing the structure itself rise up in the coming weeks," said Charles Wang, Chairman and CEO of GTA. "As GTA continues to make significant progress toward our engineering, production and hiring goals, we're eager to move into the new facility when construction is complete this spring."
The firm said structural steel work began January 6 and will continue through mid-February. Exterior walls will go up beginning in early February. Forcum Lannom Contractors is overseeing the construction. GTA expects the entire exterior structure, including walls and roof, will be completed by the middle of March, allowing for the company to begin moving its production capability into the new facility.
