American Battery Solutions Relaunches Ohio Facility

Company adds capacity to meet growing lithium-ion battery demand.

American Battery Solutions Inc. (ABS), a leader in the design, development and manufacturing of advanced battery systems, this week formally re-launched its upgraded 170,000-square-foot manufacturing facility, with critical added production capacity to meet growing demand for its lithium-ion batteries used in light electric vehicles and numerous industrial and recreational applications. 

The Springboro, Ohio facility, purchased from Robert Bosch Battery Systems in 2019, includes additional investment in equipment and facility improvements conducted in parallel with developments in new product offerings and new customer programs, steps that enabled production start-up in January this year of the ALLIANCE Intelligent Battery Series. The plant employs 33 technical and production employees, a figure that represents more than twice the number employed when ABS acquired the facility, with additional positions under consideration by the company. 

“With our initial investment several years ago and subsequent investments in additional equipment and production capacity, we see the Springboro facility as a critical strategic link in our ability to meet the growing demand in underserved markets such as light electric vehicles, autonomous robotics and telecom, and to continue ABS’ unbroken growth trajectory,” said Subhash Dhar, founder, president and CEO of ABS. “Our facility here further strengthens our footprint in the state of Ohio, leveraging its heritage as an engineering and manufacturing powerhouse, adding critical mass to its emphasis on new energy-related jobs.”  

ABS’ investment in the Springboro facility is driven by growing customer adoption of its recently launched ALLIANCE Intelligent Battery Series for light commercial and heavy-duty electric vehicle markets. At capacity, the facility will be capable of producing 8 Giga watt-hours of power annually, the equivalent of powering more than 150-thousand electric vehicles.
