(NASDAQ:VEV)(TSXV:VMC) (“Vicinity” or the “Company”), a North American supplier of commercial electric vehicles, today announced the receipt of a Certificate of Occupancy from the City of Ferndale for its newly constructed, state-of-the-art, 100,000 square foot U.S. Manufacturing Campus in Ferndale, Washington.

It is anticipated that vehicle assembly in Ferndale will begin in the first half of 2023.

As previously announced, the Ferndale Campus is located near the Company’s Headquarters in Aldergrove, British Columbia, with easy access to port, rail, and truck shipping and receiving facilities.  Operations at the Ferndale Campus will include vehicle assembly and upfitting, “Buy America” compliant assembly, pre-delivery inspections, research and development, as well as general technical and servicing work.

“The startup of the Ferndale Campus will allow us to more aggressively tackle the fulfillment of our growing order backlog which, as of today, exceeds US$150 million.
