PROVO, Utah–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Raser Technologies, Inc. (NYSE Arca: RZ) (Raser), a technology licensing company established to develop and license advanced electric motor, controller and related technologies, today reported that the company has hired James A.

Spellman, 49, joins Raser after a 27-year career with Remy International, formerly the Delco Remy division of General Motors. As Director of Hybrid Technology, Spellman organized a group to lead Remys entry to the hybrid motor and energy storage market. Spellman was a leader of teams in the U.S. and Europe that developed and commercialized both belt-driven and shaft-driven motor systems for hybrid vehicles ranging from automobiles to Class 8 trucks.

Rasers alternator innovations offer immediate benefit in heavy duty transportation applications, and the ISA technology offers great improvements for electric motors and controls for hybrid electric vehicles and mobile power generation, said Spellman. I look forward to applying my experience in the transportation markets to commercialize these exciting technologies.

Jim is an outstanding addition to the Raser team, said Raser President Patrick J. Schwartz. His groundbreaking work with the worlds largest automotive manufacturer is a perfect fit for Rasers ongoing development of alternator and integrated starter-alternator (ISA) technologies. The U.S. Army recently funded continued development of our P-50 ISA, and Jims technical and market knowledge of the hybrid space will help Raser continue that R&D momentum into commercial applications.
