Efficient Drivetrains, Inc., a provider of hybrid and electric vehicle drivetrain solutions, is increasing the size and capacity of its Dixon, California vehicle engineering and support facility. The company will be moving its current Dixon operations into a new 10,000 square foot space in February of 2017.
The expansion will support the manufacturing of up to 5,000 drivetrains and large numbers of vehicle engineering and upfit projects annually beginning in 2017. The company will expand its portfolio of solutions: EDI PowerDrive line of EV and PHEV drivetrains, EDI PowerSuite Vehicle Control Software and Telematics, and EDI Power2E 2 Way Charging and Exportable Power for end users, vehicle manufacturers and integrators.
Combining the company’s Silicon Valley Global Headquarters and Innovation Center, and its new Dixon facility, EDI’s California footprint will occupy more than 40,000 square feet between the two locations. The expansion in Dixon and continued build out of its Silicon Valley Innovation Center allows the company to accommodate its growth and future market development plans in response to increased demands for its EDI PowerDrive PHEV and EV drivetrain solutions.
The new Dixon expansion provides capacity for the company’s growing vehicle engineering and integration projects for medium and heavy duty plug-in hybrid and fully electric fleet vehicles.
In addition to its Silicon Valley headquarters and Dixon operations, EDI will continue to maintain its development and manufacturing operations in Beijing, China and is also expecting to announce incremental facilities there in Q1 2017.
