Unique molten salt "thermal" battery technology created by Pinellas Park, Florida-based ENSER — with an array of electronics and defense applications — will join the arsenal of tools for EnerSys with its recent acquisition of the Florida firm.
Using lithium silicon cobalt disulfide, ENSER has developed equipment capable of advanced power for “next-generation” strategic defense, aerospace and other uses.
"This acquisition is a natural extension of our capabilities in the aerospace and defense markets," Michael Schmidtlein, EVP and CFO for Pennsylvania-based EnerSys, said. "ENSER's products are powering many of today's most advanced weapon systems and we look forward to expanding our products and services in this crucial and strategic market."
EnerSys will be able to extend its design and development capacities with the transaction, including thermal battery testing for the U.S. Department of Defense and additional branches of the military sector.
"We greatly value the U.S. Government's Title III investments into ENSER's products, facilities and technology and we are excited to incorporate these advanced properties into the EnerSys portfolio," Jeffrey Long, who serves as president – Americas for EnerSys, said.
Since1997, the award-winning ENSER has served many high-profile clients including Raytheon, Lockheed Martin, United Technologies, Aerojet Rocketdyne and Moog. The company has previously won awards from Raytheon and Boeing.
