Hoppeckehas seen huge growth in demand for its lithium-ion storage technology over recent years and continues to invest heavily in R&D capabilities in this area. The creation of

Jon Bailey, managing director of Hoppecke UK, says: "In the UK, Hoppecke has the largest installer base for lithium-ion technology and the decision to create a separate division means that we can focus on the diverse needs of this growing market."

Hoppecke is well-established as a provider of lithium battery power for motive power and intralogistics operations. In addition, its lithium-ion solutions encompass emergency power and traction applications in the rail sector and innovative energy storage systems with medium to large capacity for a wide range of applications.

The main aim in creating the new division is to achieve even stronger customer loyalty and agility and thus to be able to respond even better to individual customer needs.
