Vroom Solar Plans Springfield, Missouri, Headquarters-Operations
The new location will serve as the company’s headquarters and a manufacturing facility. Automated packaging processes will enable Vroom to rapidly produce their patent pending portable, battery-free, DIY solar energy kits.
"Vroom Solar is excited to be building our headquarters in Southwest, Missouri,” said Luke Phelps, Founder and CEO of Vroom Solar. “Vroom will provide the world's first patent-pending sunlight direct generator that manages sun power for small scale needs. We will be launching our product at the end of this year with national distributors already signing up to carry our products.
Vroom Solar will benefit from the Missouri Works Program, a tool that helps companies expand and retain workers by providing access to capital through withholdings or tax credits for job creation.
“It’s always exciting to see companies establishing in our state and creating new opportunities for Missourians,” noted Michelle Hataway, Acting Director of the Department of Economic Development. “Our state continues to set itself apart as an ideal location for cutting-edge employers like Vroom Solar. We’re proud this company chose Missouri for its headquarters and appreciate all our partners who worked to make this significant project a reality.”
Vroom Solar provides portable, sunlight direct, battery-free, DIY solar power kits. The patent pending mounting solution allows sunlight to directly power the portable generator for on-the-go energy. Kits can be used to power containers, box trucks, trailers, outdoor buildings, and even off-the-grid housing.
