Company Marks Major Milestone with Final Phase of Its Move to Cypress, Advancing Plans for New Market Expansion, Enhanced Production Capabilities and Operational Efficiencies
CYPRESS, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Romeo Power, Inc. (“Romeo Power” or the “Company”) (NYSE: RMO), an energy technology leader delivering advanced electrification solutions for complex commercial vehicle applications, today announced the completion of the third and final phase of its relocation from Vernon, California to its new 215,000 sq. ft. manufacturing center and headquarters in Cypress, California.
The Company recently completed the transition of remaining testing labs and equipment from its Vernon site to the new facility, with a significant amount of advanced planning, engineering, logistics and permitting to land and connect equipment and minimize down time.
“The relocation of our labs and completion of our move marks a significant milestone for Romeo Power,” said Chief Executive Officer Susan Brennan. “With testing, engineering, design, quality, production, shipping and support services all in a single, state-of-the-art facility, we are well positioned for planned expansion into marine and industrial markets, improved operational efficiencies, and scaling of manufacturing and production.”
“Further, Cypress offers a great location for us because of its proximity to both Los Angeles and Orange County, a diverse workforce, and an established and thriving business corridor,” Brennan added.
Romeo’s Chief Operating Officer Anne Devine said the Company received a great deal of support from the City of Cypress, enabling them to move through the permitting process and complete the relocation on schedule and on budget.
“We are thrilled to have our entire team, equipment and processes under one roof,” Devine said. “Our new manufacturing operation will not only support growth, it will enhance throughput, quality and cost-effectiveness. With 24,000 square feet of office space dedicated to engineering, product management, quality and other support resources, and another 191,000 square feet of factory space dedicated to state-of-the-art automated module manufacturing, pack assembly and advanced testing laboratories, we can produce four times the capacity as compared to our previous location. We want to especially thank the City of Cypress for welcoming us to the business community here. We are very excited to be moved into our new home in Cypress.”
