Johnson Controls to Invest $138.5 Million in Toledo, Ohio Battery Facility to Support Rapidly Emerging Start-Stop Vehicle Technology
Pending final state and local approvals, Johnson Controls will receive a combination of tax credits and incentives from the state of Ohio totaling $25 million. Construction is scheduled to begin this summer and the first line will launch production in spring 2012.
Johnson Controls' investment will add 6 million in AGM battery capacity to the company's North American AGM footprint by 2013. The expansion will create 50 new jobs and retain 400 existing jobs in the community.
