Romeo Power inaugurates EV battery pack plant

Romeo Power Technology, an energy storage technology company founded by engineers and designers from SpaceX, Tesla, Amazon and Samsung, has completed the construction of its fully-automated lithium-ion battery pack manufacturing facility near downtown Los Angeles.
“Romeo’s state-of-the-art factory is both proof and promise of our place in the new energy economy,” says Romeo co-founder and CEO Michael Patterson in a press release. “Contrary to what many fear, automation is creating jobs – in this case, over 200 good jobs. Competitive, in-demand jobs with living wages.”

Romeo Power Technology’s new 113,000 square-foot factory is slated to produce 1 gigawatt hour by end of year and will quadruple capacity by 2018 to 4 gigawatt hours. Captained by Romeo’s Chief Production Officer Mark Schwager who previously oversaw Tesla’s gigafactory development and design, the new facility aims to manufacture the most powerful and energy-dense battery packs in the world.

All Romeo lithium-ion battery packs for EVs and stationary applications are designed, engineered, tested and produced on site. The battery packs are designed and optimized based on specific power and energy density needs, ranging in size from 1 kWh to 1 Mwh.

“Our people aren’t assemblers, they’re problem-solvers, forging the way to a sustainable future,” said Schwager. “Our mission to advance energy technology has never been more critical.”

The company currently has contracts and design agreements in place that span US and European automakers, manufacturers of motorcycles and forklifts, industrial players such as Power Designers, robotics companies, among others. Romeo is now ramping production of its lithium-ion battery pack and stationary storage technologies and is fulfilling orders at full capacity.
