Proterra consolidating operations in S.C.

Posted on October 12, 2011

Proterra Inc. is consolidating all operations and management to Greenville, S.C. Originally based in Golden, Colo., the shift moves all management and research operations to their Phase 1 EcoRide fast-charge, battery-electric bus manufacturing facility.

"As we continue to evaluate our efficiency and scale operations, we saw value in consolidation — bringing all operational components of our company under one roof," said David Bennett, newly announced CEO for Proterra.

The move brought an additional set of advanced research and manufacturing jobs to South Carolina, as the company works to increase production capacity in their newly expanded manufacturing footprint.

With its headquarters and manufacturing in Greenville, S.C., Proterra is a leading designer and manufacturer of heavy-duty electric drive systems, energy storage systems, vehicle control systems, transit buses and fast-charging stations.
