Sunlight Batteries USA has expanded its operations with a second location in Mebane, Alamance County, North Carolina. 

The USD40 million investment will create a new state-of-the-art lithium ion battery and battery-charging solutions hub to meet growing demand in the Americas market. The new facility will be equipped with five lithium ion battery assembly lines, one of which being fully automated. 

Sunlight Batteries USA is a subsidiary of the Sunlight Group, a world-leading technology company headquartered in Athens, Greece. 

The new Mebane facility is part of a USD560 million global expansion strategy.  

Todd Sechrist, CEO of Sunlight Batteries USA, describes the opening as another milestone in Sunlight’s ambitious growth plans for the Americas region. “In addition to positioning Sunlight as a partner of choice in the Americas market for meeting sustainability, clean energy and decarbonisation goals, the new assembly centre is an exciting opportunity to be an economic engine for the communities in which we live and work, and to provide the brightest possible future for our Sunlight families and neighbours,” he says.   

In addition to lithium module and battery assembly, the new facility will also house the headquarters of Sunlight Batteries USA, as well as advanced charging and industrial electronics services (battery charger assembly, parts and distribution centre).
