LORDSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – The company building an electric vehicle battery plant in Lordstown has made a big land purchase adjacent to where the plant is currently being constructed.
It’s the Ultium Cells plant on Route 45. When we were at the plant on Wednesday, there was a lot of construction going on.
Ultium Cells was the company formed by General Motors and LG Chem.
A GM spokesman confirmed that the company bought an additional 144 acres near the plant, primarily to support the placement and routing of utilities.
He says there are no plans to build a second plant because the company is focused on getting its first plant up and running.
