Our entire EnerSys team is proud of the Navy’s confidence in our ability to meet these needs by extending our production relationship through this new contract award,” said David Shaffer, President and Chief Executive Officer for EnerSys.
Mark Matthews, Senior Vice President Specialty Global added, “EnerSys takes great pride in supporting the US Navy’s submarine fleet with our proprietary TPPL technology for the growing needs of this demanding application. It is an honor to partner with the US Navy for the next five years and we look forward to continuing to support the US Navy as well as the entire US Department of Defense with EnerSys advanced lithium cobalt and proprietary lithium ion-chemistries.”
