With an initial production capacity of more than 10 million components per year and the possibility of a fivefold increase within a few months, ITEN is beginning its commercial development. The opening of this site represents the starting point of an industrial project which is much more ambitious.
The progressive ramp-up of production in 2019 will enable ITEN to double its workforce by mid-2020. In the medium term, ITEN’s unique mastery of solid-state lithium-ion technology and an innovative manufacturing process will enable it to consider developing its range beyond micro-batteries in order to adapt to the future needs of the electronics and bio-electronics industries.
Fabien Gaben, CEO of ITEN, stated: “We are delighted to inaugurate this first production site, which constitutes an important step in implementing our strategy. ITEN will bring all its expertise to meet the integration and performance requirements of the electronics industry. "
ITEN benefits from the support of several investors, such as Eren Group (SBGFI), Habert Dassault Finance, and the funds managed by Demeter Partners, Innovacom, and Kreaxi, as well as from the financial support of Bpifrance.
