Lordstown Motors CEO Steve Burns has bold plans to fill the 6.2-million-square-foot facility he bought from General Motors last year.
Those plans include both people and products. The CEO said he will start hiring 600 workers next year to build the first 20,000 Endurance all-electric pickups Lordstown Motors is designing.
Then, starting in 2022, Burns will hire more people to build other all-electric vehicles, such as SUVs and a midsize pickup, he told the Free Press.
“We didn’t buy a mass volume plant like this and not plan to fill it up,” Burns said. “This is a gem of a building built for volume manufacturing.”
