Motiv Power Systems, a manufacturer of electric truck and bus powertrains, has opened new headquarters at 330 Hatch Drive in Foster City, California.
The new headquarters gives the company room to grow and hire new employees, and continue to design cutting edge power electronics that allow truck and bus manufacturers to add zero-emission vehicles into their portfolio of alternative fuel options. The new headquarters triples Motiv’s workspace, creating the opportunity to accommodate up to 100 employees.
“Motiv’s expansion is a great example of the growing innovation economy in San Mateo County. I applaud Motiv’s commitment to sustainability and the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. While their clean technology provides environmental benefits wherever these vehicles are driven, the local benefit includes new jobs in San Mateo County. It’s great to see local companies seeking and receiving grants from the CEC that allow them to expand their operations, benefiting local communities and all of California,” said Assembly member Kevin Mullin.
In addition to its new headquarters, Motiv operates a manufacturing facility in Hayward, California. The facility produces the entire suite of controllers for Motiv’s All-Electric Powertrain. At full capacity, it produces controllers for 480 all-electric powertrains annually, supporting the growing demand for electric trucks and buses across the U.S.
Motiv’s Hayward manufacturing facility was made possible thanks to an $2.3 million in grant funding from the California Energy Commission (CEC). These all-electric powertrain components are used in electric vehicles by partners including Morgan Olson, California Truck and Equipment Company, Creative Bus Sales, Rockport, Trans Tech Bus, and Cumberland Servicenter.
