Electric Bike Leader Currie Moving to Simi Valley

Relocation from Chatsworth is to make it easier and safer for employees to commute by electric bicycle.

Published: 27-Aug-2012

A developer and distributor of electric bicycles has decided to move from Chatsworth to Simi Valley, bringing 50 employees and possibly new jobs.

"Our lease was up in Chatsworth and we really thought Simi was a better environment for our company and our employees," said Larry Pizzi, CEO of Currie Technologies, which will move at the end of November.

Currie Technologies' staffing fluctuates depending on the time of year, but it averages about 50 employees. Pizzi expects that number will grow because the company has grown as active baby boomers age and high gas prices drive people to look for alternative transportation.
