Why this tech startup with an 'exploding market' is launching in Sacramento

May 30, 2018

May 30, 2018 01:08 PM It's starting off small, but a new company that manufactures electric motors is moving to Sacramento - and local officials think it could be the start of something big. Highlands Power announced Wednesday it will set up shop at the Urban Hive co-working space on Alhambra Boulevard. The company will launch with 10 employees, with plans to grow to 150 in the next couple years, CEO Dimitrios Dovas said. Dovas said his company chose to locate in Sacramento due to its proximity to investors in Silicon Valley, its access to engineering students at local universities and because many companies here are already building the components the company needs to assemble its motors. He called the electric motor world "an exploding market" and said he is in discussions with several large automakers who are interested in buying his motors for electric vehicles. The S-ONE motor is smaller and more efficient than electric motors currently used in vehicles, Dovas said. SIGN UP Help us deliver journalism that makes a difference in our community.
