Solectrac, makers of electric tractors and an operating company of Ideanomics, announced a partnership with Nolan Manufacturing establishing an east coast production facility to meet the increasing demand for electric tractors across the country. The 10,000-square-foot facility in Denton, NC broadens Solectrac's service for east coast customers and reinforces the company's continued nationwide growth.
Since Ideanomics' acquisition in June 2021, Solectrac has grown significantly, adding several dealers throughout the United States, including three recently added on the east coast in Alabama, Florida and Georgia. Partnering with Nolan Manufacturing increases Solectrac's production capacity in support of its growing dealer network. The primary production at Nolan Manufacturing is Solectrac's e25 electric tractor, with additional models planned for future production.
"As the demand for Solectrac's electric tractors continues to increase, I'm excited about our persistent progress on the East Coast towards a more sustainable future and regenerative agriculture," said Mani Iyer, Solectrac CEO. "With a 10,000 square foot manufacturing facility, 57 acres and three new buildings, we are ramping up production quickly and will be able to deliver tractors to dealer partners expeditiously and provide more efficient services to existing customers. As we achieve full production capacity, we are focused on making hiring and training a top priority."
Nolan Manufacturing has over 50 dealers from Maryland to Georgia, with four equipment dealerships in North Carolina. They are producers of equipment and landscaping trailers with plans to expand production and distribution operations to include farm tractor implements, alongside the distribution of Solectrac tractors.
"It's exciting to be in a partnership that will support Solectrac with meeting the growing demand for their tractors," stated Chris Biesecker, owner of Nolan Manufacturing. "The demand for Solectrec tractors is growing on the East Coast, and we're proud to do our part in providing the market with the economical and environmentally friendly Solectrac tractor." Chris has worked in equipment retail for over 30 years and will oversee the day-to-day operations of Solectrac tractors.
