Joby acquires facility in Ohio and begins hiring to support initial manufacturing operations

Joby Aviation today announced it has acquired an existing facility at Dayton International Airport and begun hiring in support of the Company’s initial manufacturing operations in Dayton, Ohio.

“The facility acquired by Joby will be fitted out to support initial manufacturing operations in Dayton, which are expected to begin later this year” according to the press release. “The facility will be used for the manufacturing of aircraft parts in support of Joby’s Pilot Production Line in Marina, California.

“Joby’s acquisition of the on-airport facility is the first step in the Company’s plan to develop facilities capable of building up to 500 aircraft per year in Dayton, which is expected to include the design and construction of a larger greenfield factory.

“Joby announced in September 2023 that it had selected Dayton, Ohio, as the location for its scaled manufacturing facility, capable of producing up to 500 electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft per year, with plans to invest up to USD500 million and create up to 2,000 high-quality, clean manufacturing jobs in the region.

“Joby’s electric air taxi is designed to carry a pilot and four passengers at speeds of up to 200 mph, offering high-speed mobility with a fraction of the noise produced by helicopters and zero operating emissions.”
