Information about the Cellforce Group
We take your questions seriously. That is why we have put together some key questions and answers about our construction project in Mahden:
The planning application was submitted on February 10, 2022.
We are currently planning to launch production in 2024 (at least that’s the timeline), which would require construction to begin this spring. We cannot reliably judge at this point whether we will be able to keep to this schedule.
One key factor in our decision was the openness of the City of Tübingen, the City of Reutlingen and the municipality of Kirchentellinsfurt to Cellforce operations at the Mahden industrial park. Another was the chance to set up business at an existing industrial park with an excellent infrastructure. The park has the space to build our development and pilot production facility as part of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action’s EuBatIn project under IPCEI.
Another important criterion for choosing this location was proximity to important research partners such as Fraunhofer, DLR, ZSW, Reutlingen University and Cyber Valley, as well as to industry partners such as Manz AG and Porsche AG.
A modern development and pilot production center is being built at our new site in Mahden, which will focus primarily on research and development for and small-scale production of high-performance battery cells. A core aspect of our work will be research and development in the field of cell chemistry, a critical component of overall battery cell performance. At this site, we want to raise the efficiency and longevity of battery cell technology to a whole new level, actively shaping the mobility of the future.
The planned site is not for series production, it is for the development and pilot production of high-performance battery cells. The existing area is enough for this purpose.
No, there is no risk to the local population or the environment. Battery cell technology is a safe and, above all, tried and tested technology. We are drawing on years of experience in battery cell research and production. We will comply with all statutory safety requirements and also implement our own, additional safety standards.
Cellforce Group GmbH currently has 23 employees. We plan to increase the number of posts to around 100 by the start of operations in the spring of 2024, with jobs at all levels.
The Cellforce Group wants to engage with the residents of Reutlingen and Kirchentellinsfurt. At the heart of this approach is a personal exchange and the questions and suggestions of the public: The Cellforce Group wants to get to know the local population and takes your questions and suggestions seriously. This is essential if the Cellforce Group is to become part of the community and be a good neighbor to you in the long run.
There will be various opportunities to enter into dialogue with the Cellforce Group:
March 31, 2022: Online public dialogue
April 2, 2022: Public dialogue at the farmers’ market in Reutlingen
April 9, 2022: Public dialogue on Rathausplatz square in Kirchentellinsfurt
You are warmly invited to come and get to know the company and find out more about the building project in Mahden. We look forward to seeing and hearing from you.
