magniX moves in at Everett in Snohomish County
Together, magniX and Eviation are working to create a hub of innovation and usher in a new era in electric aviation for Snohomish County. A 40,000 sq ft facility in Everett should set magniX on such a path.
Revolutionising commercial aviation is magniX's goal.

The new global operations facility of magniX in Everett, Washington spans 40,000 sq ft. The company's new facilities will consolidate all of its Australia and Redmond operations under one roof to be home to its global headquarters, engineering, manufacturing and testing of its electric propulsion systems.

magniX CEO Roei Ganzarski states: “We continue to make tremendous progress toward revolutionising commercial aviation, and our new facility is a representation of that progress. I am excited to see efficient and clean electric aircraft propulsion systems of varying power ranges coming out of this facility and heading to customers.”

The expansion comes at a time of global growth for magniX. In a span of less than 18 months, it has powered the world's first all-electric commercial aircraft, Harbour Air's eBeaver; powered the world's largest commercial electric aircraft, the Cessna 208B Grand Caravan, was selected by Universal Hydrogen, to help bring near-term adoption of hydrogen in commercial aviation, and by Sydney Seaplanes to bring electric aircraft to Australia and the Pacific. magniX was also recently selected by Faradair to bring electric aircraft production to the United Kingdom powering BEHA, their new aircraft.

“Washington's aerospace sector continues to attract some of the most innovative companies in the world,” says Governor Jay Inslee. “magniX is moving the industry into the clean energy future, and we're looking forward to watching it succeed and grow. Our state's world-class workforce is ready to help magniX lead the way in this exciting next chapter.”

“Washington's century-plus of aerospace innovation creates an exceptional environment for developing and piloting new technologies,” adds Lisa Brown, director of the state Department of Commerce. “Additionally, we are aggressively addressing climate change by embracing clean energy throughout our transportation sector, from vehicles to trucks, to ferries and aircraft. magniX is the leader in the development of electric aircraft motors, and we are thrilled it has chosen Washington as its initial manufacturing location.”

The announcement comes on the heels of Eviation, magniX's sister company and maker of the world's first all-electric commuter aircraft, opening operations in Arlington, Washington late last year. Together, magniX and Eviation are working to create a hub of innovation and usher in a new era in electric aviation for Snohomish County.
