Last Thursday, we expanded our engineering research and development capabilities by adding a new Engineering and Technology Center of Excellence (here's the press release). The 6,000-square foot expansion gives us more than 10,000-square feet of engineering and testing space under one roof. The world-class facility provides the additional resources needed to innovate the power solutions industry into the future.
At a ribbon cutting ceremony, our employees, partners and customers got a first look at the next-generation addition, which features a secure research and development area and a state-of-the-art testing lab area. Situated adjacent to our on-site manufacturing plant in Woodridge, Ill., it also furthers our Made-in-America capabilities.
The Engineering and Technology Center of Excellence will serve as our United States research and development hub, collaborating with nearly 100 degreed engineers, including four PhDs around the globe, to solve our customers’ portable power needs.
The battery packs and chargers developed within this facility will power end use devices ranging from portable medical devices to military electronics to data center uninterruptible power systems. By opening this next-generation facility, we’re affirming our commitment to developing innovative, custom battery packs and chargers that allow our customers to differentiate themselves in the marketplace.

Technology & Design Engineering
If your customers don’t have to think about the power behind your device, we’ve done our job. Starting with the end in mind, we procure the right cell technology and work closely with you to design a custom power solution that meets your business requirements and helps your device live up to its promise.
We are the only custom battery pack manufacturer with an independent CTIA authorized testing facility, IQ Laboratories. This means safety and performance assurance, all with speedier agency approvals and faster time-to-market for your products. Quality, safety and speed - who says you can’t have it all?
We’re capable of producing 10 million battery packs per month globally— but never at the expense of quality. Our manufacturing operations are 9001:2008 and ISO 14000 certified and employ DMAIC and LDFSS to ensure high-quality, high performance battery packs—while meeting your time and budget requirements.
Experts at doing business in Brazil, we deliver integrated manufacturing efficiencies that save our customers time and money. In addition to lithium-based battery packs, our diverse product mix features an array of power supplies and modules. We’d love to help you achieve manufacturing success in Brazil – find out how.
