Lead-acid battery replacement market growth spurs lithium-ion firm ABS to triple in size

Fri, 11/19/2021 - 09:42 -- paul Crompton

Lithium-ion battery maker American Battery Solutions is tripling the size of its Innovation Center in Michigan, US, and adding to its team of battery professionals. 

The company is expanding the size of its facility from 40,000 sq. feet to 115,000 sq. feet and added 75 engineering, test and research jobs to support both internal product development and custom battery pack contracts.

Financial details of the expansion were undisclosed.

The new areas will house additional engineering test laboratories, a hardware-in-the-Loop BMS development laboratory, and a prototype battery pack assembly line to complement the existing module prototype line. 

The expansion will be followed later this year with the introduction of its Industrial Series batteries, which are designed as drop-in replacements for lead-acid batteries in motive power applications such as utility vehicles, floor cleaning machines, pallet jacks and mobile elevated work platforms.
