Massachusetts-based ePropelled will open a NH facility within the Laconia Municipal Airport. The company provides magnetic engineering technology for electro-magnetic motors.
The facility will serve as a place to perform customer-specific engineering projects and intense product lifecycle testing for electric motors and related products in the aerospace, aqua-leisure, and electric vehicle markets.
"We can meet our growing number of customers from all over the world at Laconia Airport. Together with their engineering and product development teams we can collaborate on custom projects and they can see the progress of work being performed by traveling to the airport," said Dorian Davies, VP sales and business development. "Having this site at an airport means that our aerospace customers can fly their corporate aircraft directly into the airport, right where their projects are taking place."
The new facility is a 10,000-square-foot, multi-story building, consisting of offices, a conference room, electrical labs, an automobile lab, an aqua lab, and 6,400 square feet of aircraft lab.
"We chose Laconia Municipal Airport for its size, structure, 6,000 feet of runway, distance to major cities within New England... It's an ideal environment and airspace for testing of future or unmanned air vehicles," said Nick DeSilvio, director of operations. "This facility is a perfect setting to house large test rigs for product development and testing."
The NH facility, ePropelled's fourth location, is looking for skilled workers. Its other locations are in Lowell, Mass., Cardiff, Wales, UK; and Chennai, India.
