Quallion’s ongoing growth and expansion into new industries

Quallion’s ongoing growth and expansion into new industries led the company to open a new location in Santa Clarita’s Mann Biomedical Park on Monday.

Opening first to test runs to ensure the new lithium ion materials factory is operational; Quallion LLC hosted a tour on Monday as the new plant begins production this week on its lithium-ion battery.

Congressman Howard “Buck” McKeon, R-Santa Clarita, was also on hand to tour the plant.

Although the company continues to operate out of its Sylmar facility, more space was needed for machinery and staff to increase material production, said Amanda Reyes, marketing and public relations coordinator.

Both plants will manufacture components for the Quallion batteries, she said.

The opening of the Santa Clarita plant will help to create up to 50 more jobs at both plants, Reyes said. The company, founded in 1998, currently has up to 170 employees.

After years of looking for a reliable power source, entrepreneur Alfred E. Mann co-founded Quallion with Dr. Hisashi Tsukamoto to develop a rechargeable lithium battery for medical devices in the biomedical industry.
