Vehicle assembly of production model Invaders has begun at the Tanom Motors manufacturing facility in Culpepper, Virginia. This modern 55,000 square foot facility is currently producing three models of the Invader high performance reverse trike – TR-3 roadster, TC-3 coupe and the Model “R” with race performance capabilities.
“It’s great to see Invaders finally rolling off the line,” said Sandy Hall, Tanom Motors president and CEO. “It’s been almost five years in development and testing, but we wanted to get it right. We’re thrilled with the vehicle design which includes unparalleled performance; edgy styling with a roomy passenger compartment with adjustable seating; and a fully integrated mechanical reverse gear.”
Tanom Motor’s new facility includes a 12,000 square foot assembly line area with five major vehicle assembly areas as well as several sub-assembly areas. The 7,000 square foot body panel finishing area includes a state-of-the-art paint booth, powder-coating oven, and carbon fiber hydro dipping area. Body panels are injection molded in a 15,000 square foot area containing 26 separate molds. The 10,000 square foot parts inventory area is currently stocked with initial inventory for the production of over 150 Invaders.
“We are continuing to fine tune our production process,” added Hall. “We expect our production numbers to be in the hundreds for 2015 and we will significantly increase those numbers in 2016.”
