Falcon Car Corporation has announced it will develop a manufacturing plant to assemble Falcon 9X full size pickup trucks and Falcon 3B buses onsite at the future facility which will be located at the Sheridan County Airport Business Park.
The development of the primary site is scheduled to be completed by 2025 and will employ 260 workers. The primary sub-assembly buildings are designed to be connected by elevated skybridges and provide a safe work environment year-round.
Falcon Car is a DynamiX Energy Corporation owned entity. Falcon Car Corp. focuses on producing vehicles that are in demand today rather than future concepts.
According to Sheridan County Airport Manager John Stopka, DynamiX Energy and Falcon are known for their electric car components. The company is now taking the steps to manufacture electric automobiles.
According to a release, the Sheridan County Airport provided Falcon Car Corp. with the ideal location for the manufacturing plant. Located minutes from I-90 with rail services and aviation access, the Sheridan Airport Business Park also provides Falcon with direct access to Denver International Airport, essential for business travel.
Stopka told Sheridan Media the airport was the deciding factor for DynamiX Energy Corp. Managing Director Stefan Amraly.
The Sheridan County Commission recently received the conceptual designs for the facility. County Commissioner Tom Ringley told Sheridan Media this has great potential for the local economy.
According to Falcon, Wyoming is a great state for business as demonstrated by Sheridan’s recent industrial growth and its Made-in-the-USA initiative.
Once the company has finished with the development phase, construction will begin, Stopka said.
Falcon has secured an initial capacity building and permits to produce electric vehicles in the state of Wyoming with additional production capacity increasing to 30,000 units by 2026.
