All Systems Go at AGM Batteries
Published 06 May 2016AGM Batteries Ltd was acquired by its current owners in late 2013.
The business works with the UK’s very strong battery chemistry research community to bring new battery cell chemistries to market.
The Thurso plant is utilised by the company as a very large, pilot scale facility allowing them to prove new battery technologies at production, quality and volume in customer applications, something not generally possible for the developers of new battery technologies. It’s one of the few plants with the capability in Europe.
Together with some well-respected industrial partners, AGM has recently won two major Automotive battery development programmes, enabling them to pull three new technologies through to demonstration on hybrid & electric vehicles. Two of the technologies also have significant potential in renewable energy storage applications, an area which is forecast to grow very quickly over the coming years as more renewable energy is installed around the world. AGM has also just won its first export contract.
The company has this month recruited a Project Manager with an extensive Automotive battery development background and released vacancies for Engineers, with further recruitment for production staff planned over the coming months.
