MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. (August 16, 2001) - Catalytica Energy Systems, Inc.
(Nasdaq: CESI), announced today that it is expanding its operations into a
new facility in the Phoenix, Arizona area.
The new site will be located in Hewson Development Corporation's Fiesta Tech
Centre in Gilbert, Arizona at 1388 N. Tech Boulevard. The 43,472
square-foot build-to-suit facility will house various administrative
functions as well as the Company's Engineering Center and its commercial
manufacturing operations. Catalytica Energy Systems will begin to occupy
this new facility in October, with a dedicated commercial production
operation scheduled to come on-line next year. The Company plans to
maintain a strong presence at its current headquarters in Mountain View,
California, which will continue to house a number of corporate functions.
The Mountain View facility will also continue to serve as the Research and
Development Center for the Company and as a secondary manufacturing
operation for redundancy and for the manufacture of prototype and
development units.
"This expansion into a new facility reflects our ongoing corporate growth
and our commitment to promote operational efficiency and effectively manage
our costs as we look ahead to high-volume commercial production," stated
Craig Kitchen, president and CEO of Catalytica Energy Systems. "We believe
that the Phoenix area is an ideal location for our expanded operations given
the lower cost of operation in the area, as well as the developed supplier
base and the highly skilled labor force currently supporting the gas turbine
industry there."
Kent Cooper, Town Manager of Gilbert, commented, "The Town has worked hard
to build relationships with young, innovative and growing companies.
Catalytica Energy Systems is a high quality company that we have enjoyed
working with and hope to do so for many years to come."
Rick Weddle, president and CEO of the Greater Phoenix Economic Council,
commented, "We are very pleased to welcome this technology leader to our
region where talent, technology and related lifestyles flourish."
Bob Kawa and Stephen Steinberg of Robert J. Kawa and Co. of Phoenix
represented Catalytica Energy Systems in the lease negotiations. Steven
Schwarz and Jason Meszaros of Hewson Development Corporation represented the
landlord in the transaction. Scott Bjerk of Bjerk Construction is leading
building construction and an interior tenant improvement project.
Catalytica Energy Systems designs and develops advanced products for more
effective energy production. Its proprietary technologies include the use
of catalysts to create solutions to ease the environmental impact of power
generation. The Company's first product, Xonon Cool Combustion, is a
breakthrough combustion technology that achieves ultra-low emissions levels
for gas turbine power production. Xonon prevents the formation of
pollution, particularly nitrogen oxides (NOx), a primary contributor to
smog, through a proprietary catalytic combustion process. Additional
technology development efforts include work on fuel processing for fuel
cells, as well as adaptation of Xonon technology to micro-turbines, hybrid
gas turbine fuel cells, and diesel applications. Find Catalytica Energy
