Aeromotive Expands Headquarters
Performance industry mainstay Aeromotive has added new space to its headquarters in Lenexa, Kansas. Until recently, the fuel delivery company housed sales, tech and office personnel in one building, while engineering and R&D were in a neighboring building shared with the SEMA Data Co-Op. Starting Sept. 1, 2019, Aeromotive will be the sole occupant of both buildings.
The additional square footage allows Aeromotive to move all sales, tech, office and engineering personnel into one building, increasing ease of communication between departments. A newly designed “engineering bullpen” will serve as an incubator for the engineering team to collaborate on new designs and innovations. The second building will now be used for R&D and inventory.
“We are excited to add this new space and welcome the opportunity to restructure our facility,” Johnson Barrick of Aeromotive said. “By bringing the sales, tech and engineering departments together under one roof, we can greatly increase workflow and communication across the company.”
Additionally, Aeromotive has combined the sales and marketing teams into one department. The new Sales and Marketing Department is led by Barrick, who was previously Aeromotive’s Sales Director.
The company also hired Sumner Hylton, a Kansas State graduate and accomplished freelance designer, in a new marketing coordinator role.
“Aeromotive is having a very successful year this year and want to keep our foot on the pedal,” Barrick said. “After 25 years in business, we are excited to enter new markets, such as the side-by-side and ATV market, with new products and solutions. We are all about innovative forward thinking solutions to complex fuel delivery problems.”
