Fisker begins hiring for Delaware production facility
Fisker’s Delaware production facility will be the home of their second production model, currently code named Project Nina. The first 120 employees hired to work in Delaware on Fisker’s Project Nina will be comprised of roughly 40 electro-mechanical technicians who will be hired in July and August, followed by 80 more employees being hired between October and February 2012 who will fill positions on the facility engineering staff as well as building early teams of production workers. From there, Fisker will add more employees as needed as the company nears the full scale production of the mid-size premium sedan featuring Fisker’s electric drivetrain with a gasoline range extending engine.
The production site chosen for Fisker’s Project Nina is the plant formerly known as General Motors’ Wilmington Assembly. This production facility was responsible for models like the Chevrolet Corsica and Beretta, then moving on to create the sporty Saturn Sky and Pontiac Solstice Roadsters before shutting down in July of 2009. General Motors originally opened the plant in 1947.
