The BMZ Group, a European manufacturer of lithium-ion battery systems, has launched a long-term cooperation in the field of electromobility with Samsung SDI from South Korea. The two companies will promote the expansion of battery-powered applications in the European market.

Through the agreement Samsung SDI, a cell manufacturer, will rely on BMZ Group as a supplier for battery systems, integration and software. In this context, BMZ has ordered battery cells in Korea with an investment volume of just under $1 billion and therefore benefits from the supply security of over the next five years.

 BMZ said its customers are expected to double their production volumes in the coming year, including well-known manufacturers of electric utility vehicles, passenger cars and buses. The BMZ Group is responding to the high demand and said it plans to further push electromobility forward with additional capacity expansion.
