Fisker Consolidates Research, Design Facilities

30 people will be transferred from Michigan to its California facility.

Published: 05-Feb-2010

Fisker said on Thursday the consolidation is to "accelerate development of its next generation plug-in hybrids," known as Project Nina.

Beginning March 1, Fisker's global headquarters in Irvine, California will house all design, engineering, sales, marketing, and administrative operations, the company said.

All positions from the company's Pontiac, Michigan facility would be transferred and the facility will be closed, but the consolidation is not expected to affect Fisker's partnerships with several dozen Michigan-based engineering firms and parts suppliers.
