Octillion Power Systems moves US headquarters to Richmond, Calif.; Li-ion packs for transportation and stationary storage

Octillion Power Systems, a global provider of advanced lithium-ion batteries, has moved to a new US headquarters in Richmond, California. (Earlier post.) The company’s North and South American operations will be based there. Octillion also has relocated a battery manufacturing line from its previous facility in Hayward, California, where the company has operated since its founding in 2009. The new facility is 6,500 square feet.

With demand for lithium-ion batteries continuing to grow, the new facility gives us a lot more space to expand.

—Paul Beach, president of Octillion Power Systems
