A company that specializes in the development of hybrid trucks has decided on Coolidge as the ideal spot to develop a manufacturing plant, less than a year after it announced it would build in a Valley city.
Nikola Corporation, which specializes in building pure electric and hydrogen-electric powertrains for big rigs among other endeavors, has announced that it will be developing a manufacturing facility in Coolidge.
The million-square-foot plant is to be located near Houser and Vail roads, south of the city core along State Route 87, and will produce hydrogen-electric vehicles designed for Class 8, or heavy truck, transportation.
According to Tom Stringer, the site selection consultant representing Nikola Corp., the plant will create approximately 1,800 to 2,000 jobs and bring approximately $1 billion in capital investment to the area.
