Lithos Energy, a manufacturer of high-performance lithium-ion battery systems, has opened a new manufacturing and pilot line facility for its latest generation of battery systems.

The 65,000 square foot engineering facility is located in Hayward, California – a city near Silicon Valley. It features enhanced pack assembly automation, and will help manufacture Lithos’ high-performance and high-durability battery pack systems at scale.

In addition to developing these systems, the facility will also serve as a model for planned, co-located, commercial-scale factories that will be in proximity to customer manufacturing facilities, both domestically and internationally.

The plant’s opening follows Lithos recently announcing its latest generation of high and low voltage modular lithium-ion battery systems. Through this product line, Lithos will look to serve a range of end markets undergoing electrification that require systems capable of operating in demanding environments – notably EV, transportation, and off-highway.
