Phoenix-based Nikola Corporation broke ground on a $600-million truck manufacturing facility in Coolidge, AZ. The global transportation leader in zero-emissions and infrastructure solutions is building a one-million-square-foot building on a 430-acre parcel off U.S. Highway 87 at east Houser Rd and Vail Rd., between Phoenix and Tucson.
“This has been an incredible journey for Nikola Corporation. We started in our basement six years ago and now we are kicking off this one-million-square-foot manufacturing facility,” said Trevor Milton, Nikola founder and executive chairman.
The facility will incorporate the latest technology to increase connectivity 24/7 throughout the building and equipment to optimize overall energy, productivity and quality. The first phase of construction is scheduled for completion in late 2021, with the second phase projected to be complete within the following 12-18 months.
