West Seneca, N.Y. September 19, 2023, — Worksport Ltd. (“Worksport” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: WKSP; WKSPW) announces it has secured a long-term supply agreement with an established, leading automotive aftermarket reseller in the U.S. Under this agreement, Worksport is on track to earn an estimated $16,000,000 USD in annual sales of its advanced hard-folding and soft-folding covers, from this single customer. While estimated sales of $16 Million USD are based on the customer’s forecast on an annualized basis, this estimate does not include the customer’s expectations of year-over-year growth in sales. The agreement resulted from samples that were provided to and approved by this customer previously. This significant step follows the recent start of manufacturing at Worksport’s Western New York-based facility after receiving a robust $1.6 million order for its hard-folding covers and an additional $720,000 order for the soft-folding versions, both from the same customer.
Aligned with this positive momentum and increase in demand, Worksport has outlined its strategic intentions to expand its manufacturing capabilities. The Company has announced initiatives to adopt robotics and automation in its processes, with plans to expand assembly lines from one to a formidable four.
Steven Rossi, CEO of Worksport, expressed with conviction, “Our eyes are set on growth, cash flow positivity, and earnings in the very near future, along with getting our high-quality product into the hands of pickup truck owners.”
Strengthening the Company’s position as cleantech innovators, Worksport is preparing to introduce the SOLIS solar cover, integrated with its pioneering COR battery system. Following the Company’s collaboration with Hyundai, numerous automotive manufacturers have expressed interest in the SOLIS cover, with discussions advancing currently.
Rossi further states, “Our journey, from enhancing our manufacturing capabilities to rolling out innovative products like the SOLIS solar cover and COR battery system, highlights the substantial strides we’ve taken. We’re optimistic about what the future holds.”
