GreenTech Automotive still eyeing Tunica
The selection of Tunica County as the site of a multi-million dollar automotive plant in 2009 was a coup for local economic development officials. GreenTech Automotive unveiled prototypes of its hybrid and electric vehicles on June 6, 2009, and announced plans for a manufacturing facility on the county’s Metro Mega Site near Robinsonville in North Tunica County.
Since then, little information has been forthcoming about the project, until GreenTech opened a local office on Highway 61 here late last year. Now company officials are making a push to purchase land in the county and start site preparations by the end of June, according to GreenTech’s assistant plant manager Lindsey Garner.
Meanwhile, the company has leased the vacant Dover Elevator plant in Horn Lake and plans to have test models coming off the assembly line in July.
“We’ll have full production on one shift in December, at least,” Garner told Rotarians last week.
