Solectrac & Nolan to set up electric tractor factory in the USA
Californian company Solectrac, makers of electric tractors and an operating company of Ideanomics, announced a partnership with Nolan Manufacturing establishing an east coast production facility to meet the increasing demand for electric tractors across the country.
The 10,000-square-foot facility in Denton, North Carolina broadens Solectrac’s service for east coast customers and reinforces the company’s continued nationwide growth. The primary production at Nolan Manufacturing is Solectrac’s e25 electric tractor, with additional models planned for future production.
Soletrac was acquired by Ideanommics in June 2021, and has since ramped up their dealership network in the USA. In August 2021, the company then opened up the order books for their e70N electric tractor, designed as a narrow vehicle for handling and manoeuvrability on vineyards and farm operations. Since then, Solectrac has expanded their electric vehicle lineup by two more electric utility vehicles, the e25, the 40HP eUtility.
Nolan Manufacturing specializes in equipment and landscaping trailers and has plans to expand production and distribution operations to include farm tractor implements. This would integrate their product assortment with the distribution of Solectrac tractors in the USA.
“As the demand for Solectrac’s electric tractors continues to increase, I’m excited about our persistent progress on the East Coast towards a more sustainable future and regenerative agriculture,” said Mani Iyer, Solectrac CEO. “With a 10,000 square foot manufacturing facility, 57 acres and three new buildings, we are ramping up production quickly and will be able to deliver tractors to dealer partners expeditiously and provide more efficient services to existing customers. As we achieve full production capacity, we are focused on making hiring and training a top priority.”
“The demand for Solectrac tractors is growing on the East Coast, and we’re proud to do our part in providing the market with the economical and environmentally friendly Solectrac tractor,” added Chris Biesecker, owner of Nolan Manufacturing.
