Odyne Systems LLC receives the 2014 Governor’s New Product Award. On June 4, 2015, the leader in medium- and heavy-duty trucks was provided the award by the Wisconsin Society of Professional Engineers, whose mission is to “support the ethical practice of Professional Engineering.”
The Best of State, First Place award in the small employment category was granted to Odyne in recognition of the company’s excellent development of its Plug-in Hybrid System for Medium and Heavy Duty Trucks and economic contributions to the state through engineering innovations.
