Australian automotive technology company SEA Electric continues to power ahead in the United States opening a new California based office and expanding its Senior Sales team.
The new 12,000 square foot facility in Torrance is located in Los Angeles County and will act as the commercial electric vehicle (EV) hub for the California area. On the back of accepting large multiple EV truck orders from customers on the West Coast in 2019, the new SEA facility will provide a state-of-the-art delivery and maintenance center, according to the company.
“We are excited to add this important Torrance facility to our ever-expanding global footprint. California is a progressive, early adopter of our technology. We are proud to return that support with this facility,” said SEA Electric’s Founder and President Tony Fairweather.
Additionally, the company has appointed Steve Brooks as vice president of sales – North America. Brooks brings a wealth of trucking experience to the SEA Electric team with more than 30 years of experience in the medium-/heavy-duty trucking industry. Brooks has been dedicated to supporting organizational excellence with a commitment to continuous product improvement, organizational development, and customer success leading to spectacular outcomes in the fleet industry.
SEA Electric enjoyed tremendous growth in the United States in 2019 and has plans for new model releases, OEM partnerships, and attendance at tradeshows in 2020. SEA Electric is also participating in CARB Certification in California and NYSERDA certification in New York State, being the first commercial EV provider approved for Class 4 to Class 6 EV solutions on NYSERDA, according to the company.
