Lithos opens battery manufacturing facility in Silicon Valley

The facility will produce the company’s next-generation 2170 cylindrical-based lithium-ion battery systems at scale as it targets a range of end-market applications that operate in demanding environments like off-highway.
After unveiling its new high- and low-voltage modular lithium-ion battery systems earlier this year, Lithos Energy Inc. now has a place to produce them. The company recently announced it had officially opened the doors to its new manufacturing and pilot line facility in Hayward, CA. The 65,000-ft² (6040-m²) facility in California’s Silicon Valley will feature enhanced pack assembly automation and will manufacture, at scale, its lithium-ion battery pack systems.

“A new client can reach mass production with Lithos, in many cases, in as soon as eight months,” said James Meredith, President of Lithos. “Our Hayward facility will immediately allow us to meet the development needs for clients around the globe, while simultaneously creating the blueprint for future facilities with significant capacity.”

“Our new location immediately provides increased capacity coupled with the highest standard of manufacturing quality that Lithos is known for,” added Chris Gross, Vice President of Operations at Lithos. “Furthermore, this site allows for advanced manufacturing and efficient R&D as well as proximity to leading talent recruitment in the heart of Silicon Valley.”
