If you’ve ever driven an electric car or used just about any piece of technology, chances are it’s powered by a lithium-ion battery. But up until now, just about all of them were produced overseas.
Inside the walls of Imperium3, you’ll find history being written on a daily basis. Shailesh Upreti is the man leading the charge.
He’s founder and chairman of the first full-scale lithium-ion battery giga-factory in North America. Production has officially begun since he last spoke with Spectrum News 1.
What you need to know:
- The giga-factory is employing more than 100 people, both locally and globally.
- Imperium3 New York produces hundreds of batteries a day, meeting worldwide demand.
- The battery cells will go to a third party for quality control before they are purchased and used around the world.
