E-One Moli Plans Maple Ridge, British Columbia, Manufacturing Operations
The facility will produce up to 135 million battery cells per year and become the largest factory in Canada for high performance lithium-ion battery cells.
“E-One Moli believes in ‘Total Climate Commitment’ as well as ‘Total Care Commitment’ and looks forward to producing a pure green battery to support the world’s energy transition,” said Nelson Chang, Chairman, TCC Group, E-One Moli Energy (Canada) Ltd., and E-One Moli Quantum Energy (Canada) Ltd.
The Government of Canada will contribute up to $204.5 million to support the project, through the Strategic Innovation Fund’s Net Zero Accelerator Initiative. In addition, the Government of British Columbia will contribute $80 million to the construction of the facility.
“As our province builds a stronger, cleaner economy, we open the door to immense opportunities in the private sector that value British Columbia as a centre for innovation, investment, and cutting-edge technology. The new E-One Moli advanced manufacturing plant will create hundreds of good, local jobs and continue to establish British Columbia as a leader in building a clean energy future, “British Columbia Premier David Eby noted. E-One Moli Energy Corp. is a Taiwanese manufacturer of lithium-ion batteries. The company produces high capacity energy cells for notebook computers, high-end electronics and networking communication devices under the "Molicel" brand.
“Canada is becoming a global leader in battery manufacturing thanks to all our advantages – access to global markets, a highly talented workforce, and all the critical mineral resources necessary to make batteries – and world-leading companies want in! E-One Moli is the latest company to establish a new battery manufacturing project in Canada, and I am excited to see their project come to fruition as their new facility will help expand the electrification of consumer products and offer new energy alternatives in sectors such as construction and health care. With E-One Moli, we are securing well-paying jobs for the people of British Columbia, while building a greener, more sustainable, and resilient economy,” François-Philippe Champagne, Minister of Innovation, Science and Industry added.
