"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.,” said Healy. “Our products significantly decrease the environmental impact of long haul, over-the-road trucks which matches nicely with Austin's environmental consciousness.”
In regards to the company’s position within the trucking industry, Healy reports that Hyliion’s new location will help cultivate a workforce that is diligent and distinct in its diversity.
"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."
According to Healy, Hyliion expresses excitement about joining the community in Austin, with company recruiters now seeking individuals for technician, support and engineer positions, among other jobs.
"We are extremely excited to be joining the greater Austin community,” said Healy. “The Cedar Park Economic Development Department personnel, the Cedar Park Economic Development Corporation and the Cedar Park City Council put together an employment-based incentive program and have been fantastic to work with.”
