BMZ signs European-wide lithium-ion cells sales deal with China's Cham Battery
June 28, 2010 // Paul Buckley
A Chinese battery manufacturer, Cham Battery, has signed an extensive cooperation agreement with Batterien-Montage-Zentrum (BMZ), Europe's leading system supplier for rechargeable battery packs.
Within the framework of the future cooperation, BMZ will not only use Cham Battery's high-quality, high-energy and high-current cells, based on various lithium-ion technologies, in their own battery packs, but will also take over marketing and sales of the battery cells in Europe as representative and distributor.
Cham Battery, founded in 2003, is the first and so far only Chinese company that is specialized entirely on development and manufacturing of high-quality cylindrical lithium manganese, lithium nickel cobalt manganese and lithium iron phosphate cells of size 18650. Cham Battery manufactures in its own Six Sigma factory in FuYong Town, ShenZhen, China. In addition to various high-current cells with up to 1.6 Ah and a current carrying capacity of up to 20 A, Cham Battery also manufactures various high-capacity cells with up to 2.8 Ah. The current manufacturing capacity is around 100 000 cells per day.
"In the past three years of our cooperation, Cham Battery has always impressively proven that high quality and distinctive cost consciousness do not necessarily entail a contradiction. Unlike most of the other Chinese battery manufacturers, Cham Battery can maintain a position with regard to quality, safety and reliability comparable to products from renowned Japanese and Korean manufacturers. Thus, we are particularly pleased now also to be able to sell cells, which are ideally suited for use in price sensitive applications, from Cham Battery exclusively in Europe," said Timo Stegmann, Cham Battery Regional Sales Manager Europe at BMZ.
