Manufacturing

 

Over the last 5 years, GS Yuasa has invested over $1.0B in upgrading, expanding and adding to its lithium ion cell manufacturing plants. There are currently five lithium ion manufacturing facilities with more than 1.1 million square feet of manufacturing space. Two additional facilities are under construction which will bring the total manufacturing space to more than 1.6 million square feet with the capacity to produce more than 2.6GWh of lithium ion cells by the end of 2012. These plants produce highly customized cell designs as well as automotive grade, mass production cells used in electric and hybrid electric cars.

In addition to manufacturing the battery cells, our facilities conduct extensive performance and safety testing such as charge/discharge, shock, vibration, and cycle life.
