MESA, Ariz. – Atlis Motor Vehicles (ATLIS), a start-up mobility technology company, announced today the signing of two memorandums of understanding to develop an electric vehicle battery cell production line and a battery pack production line at its headquarters, in Mesa, Arizona.
South Korea-based Media Tech Co., Ltd. (Media Tech) will be ATLIS’s sole supplier for the design, development, manufacturing, installation, and calibration of all machinery comprising the electrode, assembly, and formation lines required for ATLIS to create a limited-run prototype battery cell production line.
Malaysia-based Greatech will serve as ATLIS’s strategic partner for comprehensive battery pack production. Greatech will supply all parts, equipment, and machinery required to form ATLIS’s limited-run prototype battery pack assembly line.
ATLIS is developing a fully electric vehicle platform, proprietary battery cells and packs, and the necessary charging infrastructure to recharge a 500-mile range battery in less than 15 minutes. Media Tech and Greatech have the capacity and experience needed to design, develop, manufacture, install, and calibrate the necessary equipment for electric vehicle battery cell and pack production.
“We have successfully designed, developed, and tested prototype battery cells and packs that meet all necessary specifications,” said ATLIS CEO Mark Hanchett. “This next step is to move to small-scale production at our Arizona facilities. Media Tech has 20 years of intensive research, production experience, and its ability to quickly scale production to meet capacity needs, and Greatech is one of the world’s leading automation solution providers with extensive experience in battery pack production. Both companies are a perfect fit with our business strategy and timeline.”
