Venturi Automobiles is coming to Ohio State and creating about 70 jobs for the local workforce.

Venturi Automobiles President Gildo Pastor came to campus last week to announce the company's plans to establish Venturi North America at OSU. The company will work with OSU's Center for Automotive Research to develop and build electric vehicles.

Venturi started as a race car manufacturer in France in 1984 before Pastor shifted its focus to electric vehicles in 2001. Venturi is the largest active electric vehicle production line in the world, according to a Jan. 13 OSU College of Engineering press release.
