Lithos Energy, a manufacturer of high-performance lithium-ion battery systems engineered for demanding environments, has opened a manufacturing and pilot line facility in Hayward, California for its latest generation of battery systems.
The 65,000 square foot engineering facility will feature enhanced pack assembly automation and will manufacture, at scale, Lithos’ high-performance and high-durability battery pack systems. The facility will also serve as the model for planned co-located commercial scale factories that are to be in proximity to customer manufacturing facilities, both domestically and internationally.
Lithos recently announced the debut of its latest generation of high- and low-voltage modular lithium-ion battery systems. This product line will serve a range of end markets undergoing electrification that require systems that excel in demanding environments, notably in EV, mining, marine, construction, agriculture, transportation, and off-highway, the company said.
