Michigan Advanced Energy Storage Company Moves to New Facility
Navitas Systems LLC will expand its Michigan operations and move to a new location in Pittsfield Charter Township. The company produces advanced batteries and power electronics for commercial and government markets. Navitas Systems acquired the Government Solutions Group (defense related assets) of lithium battery maker A123 Systems out of bankruptcy in early 2013. The company says the new location will allow it to expand and add low-volume production of power electronics and energy storage systems.
NextEnergy is assisting the company, along with the MEDC, the U.S. Department of Commerce, Automation Alley, the Center for Automotive Research, the Michigan Manufacturing Technology Center, and the Corporation for a Skilled Workforce. Navitas will be investing $9.3 million and creating 125 jobs over the next four years.
