Battery maker Systems Sunlight hires new CEO and president for US subsidiary

Mon, 10/18/2021 - 14:37 -- paul Crompton

Greek lead-acid and lithium-ion battery maker Systems Sunlight has appointed Todd Sechrist as CEO and president of the Greek firm’s US business. 

Sechrist, who has been a board member for Sunlight for 11 years, has also become a member of the Sunlight Batteries USA’s executive committee.

He joins the company from warehouse material handling firm Pengate Handling Systems, where he held the dual position of president and CEO.

Sechrist— the former president-Americas and COO at lead battery firm Enersys— began the role at the company’s subsidiary Sunlight Batteries USA on 18 October.

Systems Sunlight established the US subsidiary in 2019, and began assembling and distributing lead and lithium batteries for industrial electric vehicles (EVs) from its manufacturing plant in Greensboro, North Carolina, last year.

The firm is in the process of tripling capacity at its Greensboro plant with the addition of advanced machinery and equipment for the assembly of complete lead-acid and lithium-ion batteries by Q1, next year.

Last month, Sunlight announced it would invest an additional €50 million ($59 million) into its US and European plants to increase lead-acid and lithium-ion battery manufacturing.
