Video led Pinal landowner to recruit truck company to Coolidge

A YouTube video and a phone call were all it took to get a large electric truck manufacturer to come to Pinal County.

Jackob Andersen, president and CEO of Saint Holdings, which has several shovel-ready sites in Pinal County, said he watched a YouTube video from Nikola Corporation about a zero-emission semi-truck the company is planning to produce. Nikola needed a home to build trucks and Andersen knew of just the spot: a 2,700-acre site in Coolidge.

In the end, Nikola did decide to locate in Coolidge, after discussions with the city of Buckeye stalled.
