Monroe County Gains Hyzon Motors and 100 New Jobs
Operations for Hyzon Motors will be expanding into a new space in Honeoye Falls later this year. Hyzon delivers zero-emissions hydrogen fuel cell powered commercial vehicles. The company, which has operations throughout Europe, Singapore, Australia and China, will be moving into a 78,000 square-foot facility.
After 17 years of hydrogen technology development, the Asia-based company is already delivering heavy duty trucks, buses and coaches. In 2019 and 2020, the company delivered 500 fuel cell-powered vehicles to clients. These new vehicles will rival the capability of traditional diesel vehicles for performance, as well as driving range.
Last year, Hyzon established its first US operations in Honeoye Falls. Hyzon is renovating space on Quaker Meeting House Road and will use that space to create next-gen fuel cells. Total cost to create the facility is $8 million. Hyzon received $1.6 million through the Excelsior Tax Credit program of Empire State Development. Greater Rochester Enterprise and Monroe County and are also supporting this project. The building is expected to be completed in April of this year.
The company plans to go public. Currently, the fuel-cell truck start-up is valued at $2.7 billion. For more information, visit HYZON Motors.
