(“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 second phase of its relocation to a new state-of-the-art headquarters and manufacturing facility located in Cypress, California.

“The new era of Romeo Power’s growth continues with the second phase of relocation to our state-of-the-art production facility and headquarters in Orange County,” said Romeo Power Chief Executive Officer Susan Brennan. “The successful relocation of all three production lines to Cypress, coupled with Lab and Engineering operations taking place in Vernon, allow us to continue manufacturing and delivering the highest quality products for our valued customers while we complete the final phase of the transition to our new facility.”
Romeo’s new 215,000 square-foot manufacturing operation in Cypress will support the Company’s growth and expansion while enhancing throughput, quality and cost-effectiveness. It also offers proximity to Los Angeles, a thriving business corridor and a diverse workforce. A total of 24,000 square feet of office space will allow for continued organizational investment in scientific, engineering and other support resources, with 191,000 square feet of factory space dedicated to pack assembly and state-of-the-art automated module manufacturing that will produce twice the capacity of the existing lines and multiple engineering laboratories that support product testing and validation.
“Our new facility validates our products, people and potential and ensures that Romeo Power is positioned to continue innovating, building and delivering advanced electrification solutions for commercial vehicles now and in the future,” Brennan said.
