At each step of the process we build in quality, through:

  • strategic partnerships with our suppliers
  • offering our customers a range of manufacturing options from our sites in  the UK and Poland,  both of which offer a full service model.

Manufacturing options

We assemble several million battery packs/year across the Johnson Matthey Battery Systems group in our modern, well-equipped production facilities in the UK and Poland.  Working with hundreds of part numbers and producing large numbers of pack models per week, we can deliver an output of tens of thousands of units per week per shift.

We offer a range of pack sizes – from high-power high-capacity batteries for use in electric and hybrid electric vehicles, to low-power low-capacity batteries for industrial, leisure and medical uses.  As well as battery systems we can also design and produce chargers along with our strategic partners.

Short-run to volume production

We can produce battery packs in high volume through our European manufacturing base in Poland; but equally we can design and manufacture for low volume runs.

Flexibility

Bosh Supplier Award ImageWe have the flexibility to scale production to meet customers' demands, and we can change volumes quickly to respond to customers’ changing requirements.  This allows us to come up with a business model that suits various customer needs.

This flexibility has been demonstrated by our A supplier rating from Robert Bosch.

Contract manufacturing/Build-to-print

If you have a design for your battery pack, we can produce it.  Equally, if you’re having problems building batteries, we can help you.  Our uncompromising quality standards and short processing times have made us the manufacturing partner of choice for leading OEMs.

We provide a dedicated Programme Manager for all build-to-print contracts.  We can also offer help in developing prototypes, BOM development, and Far East and European sourcing.

Design and prototyping

We will work with you to find a custom power solution for your application and will take you from design concept through prototypes to manufacturing.

Experienced & skilled people

From senior management to direct operators, we have over 20 years’ experience of building batteries for many applications.

Facilities and processes we offer:

  • In-house tool-room to facilitate the rapid development of prototypes, jigs and fixtures
  • Automation where required
  • Automated in-house test equipment, adaptable for each customer, that allows recording of data and analysis in real time to demonstrate that processes are in control
  • Ultrasonic welding and resistance welding
  • All soldering operators are trained to military standards (IPC J-STD-001D and IPC-A-610).

UN Transportation Testing

We are fully conversant with UN transportation regulations for Lithium batteries and have approved Dangerous Goods signatories on site, including a DGSA (DG Safety Adviser).  We have an in-house laboratory to test and certify batteries for UN Transportation testing.  This ensures we can meet all of the transport regulations for air, sea, road and rail freight. We work with our customers to determine the most efficient and reliable logistics solution for all stages of the supply chain, meeting your specific delivery needs, whilst ensuring compliance with all regulatory requirements.

Safety

We conduct complete risk assessments associated with high voltage products and processes and manage these with our customers.
