Worksport Establishes West Seneca, New York, Manufacturing Plant
The company will manufacture its advanced products in the new 152,847-square-foot facility, including its brand-new solar cover, SOLIS, which utilizes the its TC3 truck bed cover as its base and is primarily constructed of aluminum components. Worksport plans to be operational within three months and is aiming to be running at full capacity by the end of 2022.
“We are ecstatic to be bringing the Company’s manufacturing to North America, and especially in New York, where our first ‘Made in USA’ SOLIS solar cover and Terravis Energy grid-connected fast chargers will roll off our production lines in short order. We intend to continue investing in the facility to ensure success for Worksport while striving to become a valued member of the community. We are on a new, exciting path and are grateful to New York. The New York Community has been great and pivotal in the closing of this monumental purchase for the Company. We are looking forward, with this facility, to do extremely exciting things, Worksport CEO Steven Rossi said.”
The facility features a 17,229-square foot Automated Storage & Retrieval System, or AS/RS, that stands 90 feet tall. This advanced system will allow Worksport to store parts and products vertically, utilizing cubic area of available space, streamlining component and product retrieval during production and order fulfillment, respectively.
“Governor Hochul’s dedication to attracting small businesses, by supporting forward-thinking companies like Worksport Ltd., will continue to strengthen the economy and create high-quality jobs in Erie County and across the state,” said Empire State Development Acting Commissioner and President & CEO-designate Hope Knight. “As Worksport’s first U.S. production facility, this project will solidify the company’s investment within New York State, help foster innovation and green technology, and provide the potential for even more jobs in the future.”
Worksport Ltd. through its subsidiaries, designs, develops, manufactures, and owns the IP on a variety of tonneau covers, solar integrations, and H2 NP green energy solutions for clean energy & automotive industries.
