The high demand for lithium-ion batteries from the market has led to Micropower Group investing in building a completely new production site for lithium-ion batteries in Växjö. The new factory has an area of 6800 m2 with the possibility to expand. The construction of the factory is in progress, and it is estimated that it is operational at year-end of 2019. The production of the lithium-ion batteries will continue to be manufactured in automated production lines to ensure high quality and enable the production volume that the market demands. The total production capacity of lithium-ion batteries will reach 1 GWh/year with the new factory.
