For the third year running, Flash Battery has been awarded by Confindustria for its investments in research and innovation
Reggio Emilia’s Flash Battery wins Imprese per innovazione (Enterprises for Innovation) award for the third time, awarded by Confindustria to 12 Italian companies that successfully invested in research and innovation. The Sant’Ilario d’Enza-based company—one of Europe’s leading manufacturers of lithium batteries for industrial machinery and electric vehicles—takes the highest step of the podium, standing next to giants of the pharmaceutical, computer and aerospace industries.
“The satisfaction we are feeling is huge”, said Flash Battery CEO Marco Righi, “but I think it’s the same for the entire small and medium enterprise segment of which we are a part and which sees in this award the recognition of its decisive role in generating innovation in our country and turning it into jobs and development for the local communities”.
The Enterprises for Innovation award to Flash Battery comes right at a time when the company is making a substantial investment into its Sant’Ilario d’Enza headquarters, inaugurated just two years ago by Emilia-Romagna region governor Stefano Bonaccini. “Our revenue and staff have practically doubled since then”, said Righi, “and today we are involved in an expansion project that will further strengthen the sustainability features of our facility and processes and gear up the company for its next technological and volume leap”.
