US lead-acid battery equipment company Wirtz Manufacturing has made an undisclosed investment in nickel-zinc developer ZAF Energy Systems.

Wirtz said the move would allow ZAF to build a full production line at its facility in Joplin, in the US state of Missouri— “expanding its manufacturing capacity to thousands of batteries per month”.

Funds and equipment from the investment will be used to expand ZAF’s nickel-zinc batteries globally and demonstrate the first ever prismatic high-volume nickel-zinc (NiZn) process, Wirtz said.
