It supports our growth plans in new technologies and products and we believe the greater Austin market has the talented workforce that will contribute to our company and culture. Our products significantly decrease the environmental impact of long haul, over-the-road trucks which matches nicely with Austin's environmental consciousness." commented Thomas Healy, Hyliion Founder and CEO, "Our new building is being built to handle the requirements of semi-tractor trailers and establish excellent workspaces for our diverse workforce. We have planned library space for quiet work, bright open spaces for group collaboration, and in line with our active employees we have bike storage space, showers and even an indoor/outdoor space for dogs."
The Hyliion 6x4HE Truck Solution reduces fuel consumption and emissions by up to 30%, saving over 6,000 gallons of diesel fuel annually. One semi-tractor trailer equipped with a Hyliion 6x4HE solution delivers a CO2 emissions reduction equivalent to about 13 cars being taken off the road.

The Cedar Park Economic Development Department personnel, the Cedar Park Economic Development Corporation and the Cedar Park City Council put together an employment-based incentive program and have been fantastic to work with." stated Thomas Healy, Hyliion Founder and CEO.
