Since entering the e-mobility market in 2017, GROB has become the world market leader in the manufacture of production systems for electric drives within a very short time. At the same time, GROB has not only made a name for itself in the field of battery storage technologies with a focus on systems engineering for battery modules with pouch and hardcase cells and delivered several large-scale plants but has also taken a further consistent step with the development of equipment technology to produce battery cells. Through the strategic cooperation with Manz AG, the technical expertise of both companies is bundled in order to combine joint market and customer access. The aim is to become the leading European supplier in the field of fully comprehensive production solutions for battery systems.
Manz AG was founded in 1987 and is a global high-tech equipment manufacturing company. Its business activities include the Solar, Electronics, Energy Storage, Contract Manufacturing and Service segments. Its product portfolio includes both customer-specific developments and standardized individual machines and modules that can be linked together to form complete, individual systems. With decades of experience in manufacturing lithium-ion cell types and their assembly into a battery module, Manz AG is not only an established name in the battery market but also has a well-earned reputation.
"We are delighted to be cooperating with such a renowned mechanical engineering company as Manz", says German Wankmiller, Chairman of the Management Board of the GROB Group. "Through our cooperation with Manz, we see ourselves in an even better position and can realize large-scale plants for the international automotive manufacturers and their suppliers in a short time. This allows us to offer solutions from a single source along the entire value chain, from electrode production to high-voltage pack assembly. As a result, our customers enjoy benefits such as maximum innovative strength, optimum production processes, high throughput and low production costs."
