The Lion Electric Company, a manufacturer of all-electric medium and heavy-duty urban vehicles, is reducing its workforce to cut costs and improve its ability to reach its profitability objectives.
The reduction affects 150 employees (approximately 10% of Lion’s total headcount) in production overhead, manufacturing, product development and administrative functions, both in Canada and the United States.
“Although this was a very difficult decision and we are sad to part ways with valued employees, this initiative was the right thing to do for the business at this point in time”, said Marc Bedard, CEO-Founder of Lion. “I am confident that the workforce remaining in place is more than capable to continue growing Lion’s leadership”, he added.
Lion Electric is a manufacturer of zero-emission vehicles. The company creates, designs and manufactures all-electric class 5 to class 8 commercial urban trucks and all-electric school buses.
