Meet the Team Spearheading HEVI as a Leader in Electric Heavy Equipment

Vision and Strategy

HEVI’s mission is CEO Ray Wang’s vision: for the industrial sector to emit zero emissions. When he started HEVI, Ray knew that he would need to foster a culture that promotes continuous improvement and unwavering commitment to quality, innovation, and customer satisfaction on the jobsite and within the community around it. With Dana Hopkins as COO, Ray has found the solid core of experience and determination around which to build that culture and achieve our mission.

Leadership in Action

As we’ve worked toward that vision, we’ve orchestrated many significant milestones. We’re the first U.S. company to fully electrify its heavy equipment range. We’ve expanded our assembly capabilities to Baltimore, Maryland. And we’ve developed an impressive portfolio of proprietary technologies, signifying our unyielding commitment to manufacturing the next best thing.

Future Direction

Motivated by the goal of creating a more financially viable and eco-friendly future, Ray and Dana continuously push boundaries and foster innovation in our product development. As we journey forward, the excellence of our offerings rests in the steady support from those we need most—you.
