The Tesla Megafactory in Shanghai, China, is starting recruitment, according to a report. The company is currently looking for employees for high-level positions.
Tesla announced last week that it is going to build a Megafactory in Shanghai, China. There, the company will manufacture its large-scale Megapack power storage units. The new facility will complement the electric vehicle factory located there. Top representatives of the company visited China and made the announcement at the project signing ceremony in Shanghai.
Construction of the Chinese Megafactory is scheduled to begin in Q3 2023. According to the plan, the factory will start production in Q2 2024. It is a very fast pace, but Tesla is good at it. The company is able to build quickly, and its speed is especially fast in China, where the government promotes the manufacturer at all levels. The new factory in Shanghai will initially produce 10,000 Megapack batteries per year, equivalent to approximately 40 GWh.
According to Qian Jiang Evening News, Tesla has already started recruiting employees for the new facility. At the moment, only high-level positions are available, such as engineer, director, and manager. In China, Tesla has access to a large workforce, but recruiting highly qualified personnel takes time.
The company has an aggressive plan with a limited timeframe. The construction of the factory will start in just a few months and production in about one year. The start of recruitment right now confirms Tesla intends to build and start the operation of the Shanghai Megafactory as quickly as possible.
