Rapidly-growing manufacturer designs energy-efficient vehicles
Round Rock, TX – The Round Rock Chamber announced today that Round Rock-based AYRO (Nasdaq: AYRO) has doubled its manufacturing footprint in Round Rock. AYRO, formerly Austin Electric Vehicle, was founded in 2017. The advanced electric vehicle manufacturing company was subleasing 10,000 square feet at Chandler Creek. AYRO relocated earlier this year to approximately 24,000 square feet of space at Settlers Crossing. The new location provides opportunities for the company to grow.
“AYRO is pleased to establish its permanent home in the City of Round Rock. The location and the business-friendly environment that both the City of Round Rock and the Round Rock Chamber exhibit will allow AYRO to continue to successfully expand operations over many years,” said Rod Keller, CEO of AYRO.
AYRO expects to create and maintain many new jobs in Round Rock over the next five years. The company also plans to invest significantly in their Round Rock facility including tooling, equipment, and infrastructure.
“We are excited that AYRO recognizes the opportunities available in Round Rock and have chosen to continue growing in our community,” said Round Rock Mayor Craig Morgan. “This investment not only creates more jobs for our residents; it also adds diversity to our city’s thriving economy.”
