Brammo Motorsports is looking ahead to its fifth year of operations and the completion of a new facility this fall. Brammo founder Craig Bramscher says the new 47,000-square-foot facility, costing about $80-$90 a square foot to build, would allow the company to hire an additional 50-75 employees within the next year. Brammo currently employs 60 workers. The company’s main product, the British-designed Ariel Atom minimalist vehicle, is known as “the motorcycle of vehicles” and costs anywhere from $40,000 to $92,000. Brammo produces about 200 of the vehicles — which can go from zero to 60 miles per hour in less than three seconds — per year. According to Bramscher, the company is also working on some eco-friendly vehicles and hopes to begin work on an electric car soon after the new building is complete.
