Altec Industries Inc. plans to officially open its newly constructed $5.5 million Green Fleet utility vehicle final assembly plant in May, pending receipt of an occupancy permit. The facility is co-located with the company’s west coast service center in Dixon.
“We’ve built the utility industry’s first green-focused assembly facility” said Lee Styslinger III, Altec chairman and CEO. “This plant will be a focus for our Green Fleet products, which includes plug-in electric and all-electric utility vehicles. Altec is committed to sustainability in the products we build as well as in the facilities that build them.”
The 4,240- sq.-ft. facility is more than 25% larger than the previous structure, giving Altec the capacity to increase production of its Green Fleet product line by 50% over 2011 totals. The company now expects to assemble up to 600 commercial utility vehicles a year, compared with an average annual output of approximately 350 previously.
