ENTEK announces partnership with Brückner

To support the growing US electric vehicle and energy storage demand, ENTEK announced it will expand production capacity in addition to its recently announced 1.4 billion square meters per year project, which was selected for a Department of Energy grant award.

ENTEK, the only US-owned and US-based producer of ‘wet-process’ lithium-ion battery separator materials, signed agreements for 18 separator film production lines with Brückner Group USA.

“We will create American jobs producing lithium battery components using the most advanced technologies and meeting the cleanest environmental standards in the world,” ENTEK CTO Rick Pekala said. “Brückner’s newest generation biaxial stretching film equipment together with ENTEK’s material science, coating, recycling and separator production expertise fulfils this mission.”

 Brückner’s Director of Sales & Marketing Karl Zimmerman added, “This extraordinary partnership fills us with great pride. As two pioneers join forces, we know we will build something outstanding together to create innovative, sustainable, and reliable plants for battery separator films in America.”
