Orison was started by Blair Jackson a mechanical engineer who spent much of his career in the aerospace industry. His background is complemented by his wife Carol, an accountant, who has worked as a CPA in both small and large manufacturers.
Blair’s passion for light electric vehicles started with building an electric car for their son Matthew. Matthew has long outgrown the original electric car and is finishing up a Bachelor’s in Computer Science degree. His efforts were instrumental at developing this website.
The next vehicle developed was a heavy-duty drive by wire articulating car. Over the last several years, efforts have been focused on the creation of the FlexQuad®. The intention of the FlexQuad® is to provide a fun and portable alternative to golf cars and electric bicycles.
In June of 2018, Orison moved into production space within the IZIT Cain Sheet Metal facility in Tipp City, Ohio. We lease this space from IZIT who is our key supplier of laser cut, formed and welded parts that go into the FlexQuad®. Since then we have been working on refining the FlexQuad® design and getting ready for production.
In the coming months, we will be perfecting our production work flow between the two companies as we bring the FlexQuad® to market. If you have a recurring need for laser cutting and fabrication contact the people at IZIT, we enjoy working with them.
Let us know if you would like to pay us a visit in Tipp City.
