To Accommodate an Increasing Number of Battery Development Engagements the Company has Opened a Second Facility
SAN DIEGO, March 13, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- KULR Technology Group, Inc. (NYSE American: KULR) (the "Company" or "KULR"), a leading energy management platform company accelerating the global transition to a sustainable electrification economy, today announced the opening of a new research and development center in Webster, Texas, a suburb of Houston, to accommodate for increasing battery development engagements in the year 2023 and beyond.
“Our new R&D center will usher in the next phase of KULR's expansion and growth,” said Dr. Will Walker, KULR Chief Technology Officer. “The building that integrates the R&D center will be outfitted with state-of-the-art prototyping equipment and tools necessary for an agile engineering team to deliver prototype designs in rapid turnaround. The facility will create dozens of new STEM and other attractive jobs as KULR begins to contribute to the economic engine of Texas. Our team pushes for excellence in technology innovation and execution as we gain momentum in the design, development, and manufacturing of next-generation carbon fiber thermal management technologies for batteries and electronic systems.”
Late last month, KULR announced that it had secured a follow-on $2.68 million contract as the exclusive supplier of fail-safe battery safety solutions for an industrial scale energy storage system manufacturer. KULR's growing team was also instrumental in this project, which is expected to be one of the first in a robust pipeline of grid-scale energy storage projects incorporating the Company's passive propagation resistant solutions enabling energy storage systems longer life cycles and completely self-contained safe battery solutions.
KULR's sales, marketing, project management, quality control, and customer care divisions will continue to be headquartered in San Diego, California. However, the Webster facility's design can accommodate future expansion as the Company continues to invest in people and assets in Texas. The new facility is located within close proximity to other leading engineering organizations and firms including NASA, Axiom, Oceaneering International, KBR Wiley, Lockheed Martin, Jacobs, and many more.
KULR expects the Webster facility to be fully operational by April 2023.
