A Colorado electric vehicle manufacturer has leased an industrial building in Chatsworth where it will assemble delivery trucks and utility vehicles.

Boulder Electric Vehicle will occupy a 27,714-square-foot manufacturing building at 9655 Irondale Ave. in Chatsworth, real estate brokerage Jones Lang LaSalle said.

Boulder Electric’s new facility represents an expansion from its manufacturing facility in Boulder, Colo., the company said.

The manufacturer is set to move in by September. It will tool up the plant to produce 1,000 all-electric trucks a year. The company will bring on 30 workers over the next 12 months and plans to hire many more once the plant is fully operational, Boulder Electric said.

“Boulder EV’s manufacturing facility will bring a new edge to our growing electric vehicle industry and much needed jobs,” Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa said.
