The Rivian plant will have 1,800 employees by its June launch and 2,500 by year’s end, Fields said, along with 1,000 robots to help build vehicles. The automaker is buying 380 acres of farmland to the west across Rivian Motorway, with plans to convert the zoning to manufacturing for longer-term expansion. Fields said the adjacent site will be the future home to warehousing, parts suppliers, a customer center to take delivery of new vehicles and perhaps a Rivian farm-to-factory agricultural operation to feed plant workers.
