ZAF Energy Systems, a developer of next-generation battery technology, recently cut the ribbon on their new production facility in Joplin, Missouri, and Missouri Partnership was there to see it.
The new facility is dedicated to manufacturing its initial line of rechargeable nickel zinc (NiZn) batteries, and is expected to bring over 100 jobs to the region. ZAF’s NiZn batteries have potential uses in a wide range of applications including: automotive, heavy trucking, remote telecom, renewable energy, and marine.
“We just weren’t able to keep up with the demand with the capacity we had in Montana,” said ZAF President and CEO Randy Moore. “The new production facility in Joplin will drastically scale up production to several thousand batteries per month, enabling us to keep pace with growing demand while also refining manufacturing processes and accelerating development efforts. The end result will be a turnkey engineering package we can deliver to manufacturers with customer demand already built into the equation.”
