Governor Brian P. Kemp recently announced that Anovion Technologies (Anovion), a supplier of premium synthetic graphite anode materials for lithium-ion batteries, will build a new manufacturing facility in Bainbridge. The project will create over 400 jobs and over $800 million in investment in Decatur County.
“We’re proud to welcome Anovion to Georgia, which is fast becoming the e-mobility capital of the nation,” said Governor Brian Kemp. “Job creators like them are recognizing that every corner of our state has the resources and workforce needed for success. Having met their team personally, I look forward to celebrating their partnership with the hardworking Georgians of Decatur County.”
Anovion, a climate tech-driven advanced materials company, is one of the first qualified U.S. suppliers of synthetic graphite anode materials for use in e-mobility applications. Graphite is the largest battery material used in electric vehicles by mass, more than copper, nickel, manganese, cobalt, and lithium.
“We are thrilled to be opening our first large-scale expansion manufacturing facility in Georgia. The state’s strong technical workforce and top-tier schools will help advance research partnerships and contribute to a highly skilled talent pipeline in support of Anovion’s drive for continued innovation and creation of exciting climate technology jobs of the future,” said Eric Stopka, Chief Executive Officer of Anovion. “We are also encouraged by the region’s growing availability of clean energy, resulting in increased sustainability for Anovion’s manufacturing process. We are looking forward to providing solutions that will further secure the country’s electrified future with the support of our partners in Georgia and the Federal government.” READ MORE
