Exro Technologies chooses Mesa, Arizona as its US headquarters to advance next-generation electric vehicles and batteries

Exro Technologies Inc, the power solutions cleantech group, continues to grow and has announced its US headquarters will be in the city of Mesa in the state of Arizona, which is a hub for automotive research and development.  From its 5,000 square foot (sq ft) facility, Exro will carry out testing to optimize electric vehicles (EVs) of all types, from scooters, buses to e-bikes. It plans to hire 50 employees over the next 18 months.  Arizona is a leading US state for cutting-edge research in mobility technology, and its calm winds and wide temperature range allows for more testing on roads.  READ: Exro Technologies says new application for Coil Driver technology will cut cost of deploying EV infrastructure at scale  “The Greater Phoenix area was a natural choice for our U.S. home, and we’re thrilled to become a part of the innovative business community,” Sue Ozdemir, the CEO of Exro Technologies, told investors.  “The region is ripe with potential manufacturing partners and suppliers, and its competitive talent pipeline will support our continued growth. “Mayor Giles and the city of Mesa have welcomed our vision and we look forward to building on the city’s enthusiasm for electric vehicles.
