COLUMBUS, Ohio, Feb. 4, 2022 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

-- Green Hydrogen Company Moving its Headquarters from Southern California to 

Hyperion Companies, Inc., a green hydrogen technology company announced today 
that the company is moving its headquarters from Southern California to a 
65-acre facility on the west side of Columbus, Ohio. The facility will also

Hyperion will invest more than $297 million in the new facility to manufacture 
its next-generation hydrogen fuel cell, which will power its new line of 
stationary and mobile energy storage products, including its XP-1 ( 
) hypercar. The investment will create more than 680 net new, full-time 
permanent positions over the next six years, with an annual payroll of up to 
$58 million. Founded originally in Columbus in 2011, Hyperion's return to the 
city comes as other hydrogen technology startups and manufacturers have also 
recently made Columbus home.

Angelo Kafantaris, CEO of Hyperion, and Ohio native said, "After 10 years of 
development, we are thrilled to bring our hydrogen technology back to Columbus 
where it all started. Building the XP-1 allowed us to test and refine our fuel 
cell technology, allowing us to create the most advanced green hydrogen fuel 
cell stack for a number of different applications. With its ability to store 
mass quantities of electric energy, hydrogen has tremendous long-term, 
zero-emission potential for the energy sector, and will be one of the most 
powerful tools in reducing carbon emissions on a global scale."

Mayor Andrew J. Ginther said, "Columbus' west side has always been a hub for 
manufacturing and innovation, and Hyperion will bring a fresh wave of 
investment and activity that will create opportunity for residents in Westland, 
the Hilltop and beyond. Columbus' public and private sectors are committed to 
leadership in clean energy, technology, cutting-edge manufacturing and the 
future of mobility, and I am delighted that Hyperion will join us in driving 
our growth."

J.P. Nauseef, JobsOhio president and CEO, said, "Ohio is poised to lead in the 
development of hydrogen fuel cells, and Hyperion Companies, Inc. has invested 
significant resources in developing cutting-edge solutions in advancing this 
technology to support the automotive, transportation and energy storage 
industries. JobsOhio plans to provide assistance following the company's 
achievement of operational milestones as Hyperion moves forward to establish a 
new headquarters and R&D center in the Columbus Region."

Hyperion chose to revitalize the storied building that once housed the printing 
operations of the Columbus Dispatch because the layout and operations of the 
highly advanced roll-to-roll printing hub mirror those of a high-yield fuel 
cell membrane coating process. Between the ideal technical capabilities of the 
building, the hydrogen supplier network already in place in Ohio as well as the 
depth of the local R&D talent, Hyperion will be able to fast track its 
operations and begin production in 2023.
