New site will allow JT Energy Systems to massively expand its capacity
JT Energy Systems, the joint venture formed in February by Jungheinrich and Triathlon Holding, has acquired the former Solarworld plant in Freiberg near Dresden.

The acquisition will enable JT Energy Systems to "massively expand its capacity" and will result in the largest European production centre for batteries and charging systems in intralogistics.

The goal is to ensure early on that there is adequate production capacity for the rapidly growing demand for lithium-ion battery technology and charging systems as well as for other industrial applications in intralogistics, according to a company statement.

Highly automated module production will take place in Glauchau, Saxony, while battery systems and chargers will be assembled at the new Freiberg plant. The operational launch of the production plant in Freiberg, with an area of over 42,000 sqm, is planned for the first quarter of 2020. Approximately 200 jobs will be created in the near term.

Reinhild Kühne and Martin Hartmann, managing directors of JT Energy Systems, say: "The demand for electric materials handling equipment as well as other industrial applications for lithium-ion batteries and charging systems is growing enormously worldwide. Following the first step – the establishment of JT Energy Systems – we will fully commit to meeting market demand with successful, innovative solutions that are also sustainable. With the acquisition of the Freiberg plant, we are gaining both the production capacity necessary and an excellent site which equips us for further expansion of our lithium-ion battery and charger production."
