Voltabox of Texas (US subsidiary of German automotive supplier paragon AG), opens in Cedar Park, Texas a Li-ion battery pack assembly plant with fully automated assembly line. Voltabox is already planning more production lines in the future.

“Since June 15 we have opened up a 23,000 square feed administration and production facility in the Scottsdale Crossing Industrial Park, 1500 Volta Drive, Leander, TX 78641 near Austin, on a site totalling 6 acres in size. Cedar Park is by far the fastest-growing place in the whole of Texas.

The Cedar Park works will then begin turning out mass-produced Voltabox batteries on assembly lines identical to those found in at the Delbrück site, with the same maximised degree of automation and end-to-end process monitoring to guarantee optimum quality.”

Voltabox offers battery systems for different applications, including electric vehicles. The company is using lithium iron phosphate or lithium nickel-manganese-cobalt-oxide cells from different manufacturers.

According to Klaus Dieter Frers, founder and CEO of paragon AG, Voltabox already secured several promising orders in the US. They will begin with the bus and logistics industries with plans to later supply batteries for automakers in North America and Mexico.

We are curious which bus manufacturers signed with Voltabox.

Anyone know who uses these Austin batteries?

Trollies and busses was the only thing I could find. It looks like they buy the cells from somebody else and just build them into packs.

It looks like a BMW i3 is parked in their facility. They better prepare for Texas oil and gas mafia to shut them down.
