EnerSys has released plans to build a new operations site in Greenville County, a $500 project.

EnerSys manufactures batteries, chargers and power systems for use in a variety of end markets including telecommunications, broadband, data centers, industrial utilities, warehouse and logistics, aerospace, defense and transportation. The company also recently launched its Fast Charge and Storage system, which provides energy storage and management for various applications including dynamic, fast charging for electric vehicles.

The new site will be a 500,000-sq. ft., lithium-ion cell manufacturing facility on approximately 140 acres in the Augusta Grove business park in Greenville. The planned operation, which will be the company’s second in South Carolina, will manufacture various form factors of lithium-ion cells for commercial, industrial and defense applications, with a production capacity of four-gigawatt hours (4GWh) per year.

Construction will be completed in 2027.

“We recognize Greenville as an emerging hub for high-tech companies with an attractive talent pool in a thriving community,” said EnerSys President and CEO David M. Shaffer. “EnerSys is accelerating the global clean energy transition by significantly expanding our production of lithium-ion batteries across a broad range of end markets and applications.

“With the support of South Carolina and Greenville County, this factory will help us meet our customers’ needs, including those with specific manufacturing requirements for domestic-sourced batteries.”
