Lithium-sulfur battery technology company Oxis Energy has hired Scott Davis to manage cell production at its new manufacturing plant in Wales.
Davis will manage the Oxford-based firm’s new facility at Kenfig Hill near Port Talbot, which is due to start producing cathode and electrolyte to support the production of 500,000 lithium-sulfur cells next year.
Huw Hampson-Jones, CEO Oxis Energy said: “Having acquired the land to build the factory, this is our first senior appointment for the Welsh production plant.
“It will become a global export unit to supply the material composition that creates the chemical reaction in our advanced rechargeable lithium-sulfur vehicle battery systems”
Oxis is targeting the worldwide bus and truck markets. It has more than 43 patent families, and has been granted 198 patents with 92 pending.
