Given Celestica's global scale and capabilities, this partnership also provides Powin with the flexibility to increase our international production capabilities," says Geoff Brown, CEO of Powin, in a press release.
"Celestica will provide in-region manufacturing, engineering and supply chain solutions to ensure Powin is able to quickly launch and scale its innovative Centipede platform throughout North America," adds Todd Cooper, President, ATS at Celestica.
Powin's Centipede platform was launched in November 2021. It is the company's first fully modular design, complete with pre-integrated segments containing batteries, thermal management equipment, and essential safety systems.
