Round Rock-based manufacturer AYRO doubled its facility space during a relocation and expansion, according to a July 2 Round Rock Chamber news release. The company specializes in advance electric vehicle manufacturing.

Founded in 2017 and formerly named Austin Electric Vehicle, AYRO previously subleased a 10,000-square-foot facility at Chandler Creek Business Park. AYRO relocated earlier this year to Settlers Crossing Business Park at 900 E. Old Settlers Blvd., Ste. 100, Round Rock. The business's new facility is approximately 24,000 square feet, according to the release.


“AYRO is pleased to establish its permanent home in the City of Round Rock," AYRO CEO Rod Keller said in the release. "The location and the business-friendly environment that both the City of Round Rock and the Round Rock Chamber exhibit will allow AYRO to continue to successfully expand operations over many years."

AYRO is expected to bring additional jobs to Round Rock in the next five years. Planned facility improvements include equipment and infrastructure, per the release.

”We are honored and extremely grateful that AYRO have chosen to remain in Round Rock and we are thrilled about their continued success," Round Rock Chamber President and CEO Jason Ball said in the release. “Our small business community is very important and the fact that they are able to grow in our community means a lot. We look forward to their continued growth.”
