Economic Impact Analysis

Project Details

Worksport currently operates in North America with its corporate HQ in Ontario Canada. Worksport is in the process of onshoring their production from Yantian China to West Seneca, NY with a plan to purchase an existing currently idle 222,000 sq ft facility. At this facility, the company plans to manufacture both their conventional tonneau covers as well as to produce its newer products, including an advanced hard tonneau cover, a collapsible soft cover and the TerraVis System – its most highly anticipated product to date. This product is expected to drastically minimize electric pickup truck owners’ reliance on the grid, which Worksport feels is becoming dangerously over relied upon. The company plans to add 6 FT and 10 PT jobs. A tenant employing 3 FT workers, will operate from the facility during their short-term lease (expiring 12/31/22).
