Tesla is taking steps to continue increasing its control over its supply chain. Now, the American EV manufacturer is hiring for positions in its to-be-opened lithium refinery. About 250 construction jobs will be needed for the project after which 165 full-time positions will be available.

Lithium refining is a process which decontaminates lithium, making it usable for use cases such as batteries. This facility will be the first of its kind in North America. Tesla is planning to invest $365 million in making this plant a success.

Auto Trendy’s take:

Other than having more control over its own product and supply chain, Tesla will have the ability to control and sell refined lithium in North America. This could open doors for the company in selling the product to other manufacturers.
