Friday, August 14, 4:00 pm
City officials will greet executives from a Korean electric car company that is touring the City of Long Beach as it seeks to establish a Headquarters/Research and Development site in Southern California.
CT&T Motors, which currently has manufacturing facilities in South Korea and China, expects to hire more than 400 people and projects annual sales of $500 million within four years of opening its Southern California Headquarters.
The City of Long Beach benefits from its location and a strong, diverse workforce, and is using a host of incentives to recruit manufacturers to the city to improve its economic base by generating jobs and tax revenue.
Young Gi Lee, CT&T President and CEO
Robert Swayze, Manager, Economic Development and Cultural Affairs
Bill Allen, President and CEO, Los Angeles Economic Development Corporation
The photo op will feature one CT&T e-Zone Electric Vehicle, which are sold in more than 15 countries, including the United States. According to CT&T, this is the only Neighborhood Electric Vehicles (NEV) that have passed the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards crash test standards for front impacts and the European New Car Assessment Program standards for side impacts.
