They’ll be moving their headquarters to San Antonio that will bring approximately 450 jobs to our market that includes anything from executive, management positions to engineering.

The company will also produce their new electric vehicle here in the Alamo City, once “various incentive packages” are good to go. Details on those specific incentive packages were not discussed.

The location of their new global headquarters will be at Port San Antonio, which is an upcoming area on the city’s westside near Lackland Air Force Base.

 

“We are grateful for the tremendous support we’ve received from the community,” CEO Joost de Vries stated in a news release. “San Antonio boasts a growing component and vehicle manufacturing sector as well as a wide array of global advanced manufacturing operations.”
