Aspen intends to invest a minimum of $325 million and to create more than 250 advanced manufacturing jobs at their new site near Statesboro, where production is expected to begin in late 2023.

Combined with Aspen’s original East Providence, Rhode Island plant, the planned state-of-the-art facility in Georgia is designed to triple Aspen’s nameplate aerogel capacity in support of the Company’s thermal barrier expansion plans in the fast-growing electric vehicle (EV) market. Through the project, Aspen is seeking to capitalize on increased demand for Aspen’s Aerogel Technology Platform as EV OEMs continue to adopt its PyroThin aerogel thermal barrier solutions.

Aspen plans to build a 500,000-square-foot advanced manufacturing facility situated on a 90-acre parcel in southeast Georgia. The Company plans to begin hiring personnel in the second half of 2022 across a number of disciplines, ranging from skilled manufacturing operators to advanced process engineers, as well as quality and maintenance technicians and professional support.
