Jet Industries, Inc. was established from the development of vehicles designed by William L. Bales, DBA Bales Engineering Company. The first units were designed from the ground up in 1963. By 1971, a more advanced body type had been developed. This design proved not to be feasible due to the cost of building a low volume chassis and limitations in the available electric propulsion components. This redirected the philosophy of company management.

In 1972, chassis and bodies from volume manufacturers suitable for electric vehicle requirements were obtained and an integrated electric propulsion system was designed in conjunction with General Electric. These two developments were the front-runner of the Electra Vans in production today.

In March of 1977, Jet Industries, Inc. was formed to build production units. Today, Electra Vans and Electrica 007 are on the job working for companies such as Long Island Lighting Company, General Telephone and Electronics as well as many major city governments. Electra Vans are also in use in four foreign countries.

Much has been accomplished since Bales Engineering developed its first electric over-the-road vehicle. Today there are five Electra Vans and the Electrica 007, in full production.

Tomorrow, there will be even more innovative developments by Jet Industries, Inc.
