Austin has continued to be one the top relocation destinations in the United States over the last two years and that trend is only continuing in 2018 thanks to companies like Hyliion who recently announced that they are moving their headquarters to the Austin area.
200 New Jobs
Hyliion, the company who is bringing intelligent electric hybrid technology to the trucking industry, today announced the company is moving its corporate headquarters to the greater Austin, Texas area. Their new, over 80,000 sq. foot, custom designed office is being built in Cedar Park to support Hyliion's rapid growth. The facility will house all departments from research & development, to sales, marketing, IT and administration. The move helps facilitate the development of the Hyliion 6x4HE intelligent electric hybrid solution and allows Hyliion to expand and build upon its unique company culture. Hyliion's operations are expected to create over 200 new jobs in the area.
"Moving our corporate headquarters to Austin was an important strategic decision. It supports our growth plans in new technologies and products and we believe the greater Austin market has the talented workforce that will contribute to our company and culture. Our products significantly decrease the environmental impact of long haul, over-the-road trucks which matches nicely with Austin's environmental consciousness." commented Thomas Healy, Hyliion Founder and CEO, "Our new building is being built to handle the requirements of semi-tractor trailers and establish excellent workspaces for our diverse workforce. We have planned library space for quiet work, bright open spaces for group collaboration, and in line with our active employees we have bike storage space, showers and even an indoor/outdoor space for dogs."
