COLUMBUS— On Monday, State Senators Larry Obhof (R-Medina), Michael Rulli (R-Salem) and Sean O'Brien (D-Bazetta) toured the former GM factory in Lordstown, which was recently bought by Lordstown Motors Corporation.
Lordstown Motors Corporation, a startup company, has plans to make a new all electric powered pickup truck called the Endurance, as well as plans for all electric fleet vehicles.
"This investment is paving the way for new life in Northeast Ohio," said Obhof. "I commend the Lordstown Motors Corporation for recognizing this facility’s value and for reinvesting in the workforce of Northeast Ohio."
“In Northeast Ohio, we have some of the best-trained workers in the automotive and manufacturing industries, which makes our region the perfect place for Lordstown Motors Corporation to establish themselves,” said Rulli, who represents the 33rd district. "This is no doubt a solid future for the hard working men and women in the Mahoning Valley and I am grateful for President Obhof's commitment to creating economic opportunity in our state."
