A123 Systems, which is involved in the development and sales of advanced lithium-ion batteries and systems, is expanding its operations in Europe. The company’s new manufacturing plant, which it will open in Ostrava with support from CzechInvest, will supplement its existing technology centre in Stuttgart, Germany. The plant is being constructed in the CT Park industrial complex. It is expected that the plant will produce 600,000 batteries per year in the initial phase of operation. The company plans to employ 150 people at the new facility.

A123 Systems provides alternatives to traditional technologies and thus offers more environmentally friendly systems with reduced fuel consumption and lower emissions. The company currently operates production facilities also in China and the United States.
