Worksport opened its research and development center in Springfield, Missouri.
"Our Missouri R&D facility, surrounded by a truck-loving community, was meticulously planned to provide an efficient and focused environment dedicated to the progression of Worksport's products and intellectual property," says Worksport CEO Steven Rossi. "Retaining our proprietary IP has always given us a competitive edge, and this new facility is designed to uphold and extend that advantage."
The R&D center will be staffed by Worksport engineers with more than 70 patents across the automotive, consumer products, manufacturing and agricultural sectors. Worksport's manufacturing facility will remain in West Seneca, New York.
"We believe that smaller, on-site teams will foster better collaboration and absolute concentration on novel products," Rossi says. "Our Missouri R&D team is set to generate and incubate new ideas, build and test prototypes, evaluate innovative materials and processes to cut costs, and continuously refine our existing product line."
