VANCOUVER, BC (January 15, 2020) — Exro Technologies Inc. (CSE: XRO; OTCQB: EXROF) (the “Company” or “Exro”) is pleased to announce it is opening an innovation center in Calgary, Alberta, to demonstrate how Exro dramatically improves the performance of the world’s electric motors.
The Exro Innovation Center (EIC) will also increase the Company’s laboratory space, to expand its service capabilities to customers and showcase where Exro’s technology can be applied to key sectors of the economy that rely on electric motors.
“Expanding our labs and showcasing how Exro works is an important step as we adapt our technology for further commercialization,” said Exro CEO Sue Ozdemir. “The world needs to make optimum use of our energy, and we are delighted to open this innovation center in Canada’s energy hub to share how Exro dramatically improves the performance of electric motors.”
The 6,500-sq-ft Calgary facility is currently being retrofitted and is scheduled to open spring of 2020. The EIC will also host collaborative events to explore advances in energy consumption and electric motor innovations, with participants from Calgary, across Canada and around the world.
Ozdemir was appointed Exro’s CEO in September 2019, after serving as CEO of GE’s Small Industrial Motors Division, which under her leadership was successfully sold to China’s Wolong Electric, one of China’s largest motor manufacturers.
Ozdemir’s primary initiative at Exro is to commercialize the patented Exro system to optimize electric motors in global sectors such as transportation, agriculture, heavy industry, energy, construction, recreational vehicles, and others.
