Flash Battery will no longer be just a trademark, but will become the new name of Kaitek S.r.l.
The company name will change effective Aug. 1, just before it moves to its new headquarters in Via XXV Aprile, in Sant’Ilario d’Enza, Italy. The industrial facility was built on an area measuring 20,000 m2, with 1,500 m2 of office space and 3,200 m2 of production space, with the possibility of a further 5,000 m2 expansion.
“The new name basically aims to consolidate our company identity, instantly highlighting not just our industry category, but also one of the main features of our products—the recharge speed, which gives us an essential competitive advantage in terms of the electric vehicle industry as well as a significant part of the manufacturing industry, which is progressively converting production to electric energy,” says Marco Righi, CEO.
All Flash Battery activities will be concentrated in the new industrial facility, which is five times larger than the present-day premises and increases the company’s employee count from 45 to 56.
“The effects of the pandemic have slightly slowed down production, but have not stopped the plans to enlarge and consolidate our research and development, design and marketing areas as well as innovative international projects,” says Righi. “These are the main areas where the new professional figures hired during the first six months of 2020 will work, and a further five who will be hired before the end of the year, taking our workforce to over 60 people”.
The company also signed an agreement with EFA France, a European leader in electrification technologies.
“This partnership is all about innovation and is aimed at a market, namely the transalpine one, which offers many opportunities for expansion because it is particularly sensitive to the theme of electrification, just like the German market. It comes as no surprise that France and Germany are the foreign markets where we are investing the most,” says Righi.
