Ultium Cells LLC, the startup battery manufacturing company owned by General Motors, is looking to hire 1,100 people in the Northeast Ohio area.

The company is hard at work building a brand new battery cell manufacturing facility in Lordstown, Ohio. The factory is located on the site of the former factory that previously built the Chevrolet Cruze.

As the building and facility come into shape General Motors, or well, Ultium Cells, LLC, is starting to flush out the company’s workforce.
