Fisker is now hiring. The company is gearing up for production of its newest vehicle. To aid in that effort, Fisker recently announced 120 new manufacturing and technical job postings in its recently acquired Wilmington, Delaware plant. The new employees will help set the stage for production of the new vehicle starting late next year.

Formerly operated by General Motors, the plant will produce Fisker's second model, will follow up on the Finnish-built Karma, which goes on sale later this year. Codenamed Project Ninja, the Delaware-built model will be a midsize premium sedan, likely a plug-in hybrid, offering what Fisker promises will be "pure driving passion."

"This is an exciting time for Fisker," said Bernhard Koehler, Fisker's chief operating officer. "As we bring the Karma sedan to market and start delivering to customers, we are simultaneously starting to employ a world-class American workforce to assemble world-class American electric vehicles with extended range in a re-commissioned American plant."

Formerly home to the Pontiac Solstice and Saturn Sky, Fisker is hiring of 40 electro-mechanical technicians this summer, and a further 80 production employees during the fall and winter. According to Fisker, more new employees will be added as Project Ninja nears full production.

"[This] is a pivotal year for us in Delaware," adds Koeher. "As we start to hire new employees, we will begin the process of installing new equipment and testing the manufacturing process."

In addition to its new jobs in Delaware, Fisker recently announced an expansion of its Anaheim, California global headquarters. In the last year, the automaker's workforce has quadrupled in size, going from 50 employees last January to 200 during January 2011. By the end of June, Fisker says it will have 300 employees.

Founded in August 2007 by Denmark-born Henrik Fisker, a former designer for BMW and Aston Martin, Fisker has been able to expand rapidly thanks to considerable investor interest and a $529 million government loan from the United States Department of Energy. The automaker has previously stated it intends to produce between 75,000 and 100,000 plug-in hybrids annually by 2014.
