Opening ceremony of the new Flash Battery Headquarters
05/10/2021 – PRESS RELEASE 5/2021
“Work is our great challenge. That’s why we need to keep investing in training, knowledge, infrastructure, research, innovation and skills. Thanks to these factors, our region is continuing to attract considerable international investments, both industrial and technological, that are leaving a positive mark in the area”.
With this statement, Stefano Bonaccini, president of the Emilia-Romagna Region, inaugurated Flash Battery’s new headquarters. Flash Battery (65 in staff with an average age of under 35, € 17.5 million expected revenue by the end of 2021, a +30% growth) is a leading manufacturer of lithium batteries for industrial machinery and electric vehicles.
Marco Righi, CEO and co-founder of the Reggio Emilia-based company together with Alan Pastorelli, today head of research and development, underlined that that was exactly the challenge Flash Battery faced nine years ago when they started the company, adding that the principles of sustainability and personal well-being adopted in every space of the new headquarters have made it obvious that the focus of attention must be kept on ecological transition and the quality of work.
The new Flash Battery headquarters are located in Sant’Ilario d’Enza and are built over a surface area of over 20,000 square metres. That’s five times bigger than its previous HQ in Calerno.
Marco Righi, CEO of Flash Battery, concluded by saying: “This inauguration is dominated by the deep gratitude we have for our collaborators as well as the institutions and local community, and our wish is for it to also be a source of encouragement for us all now that we are beginning to see the first signs of a general recovery”.05-Flash-Battery-PR-new-headquarters-opening-ceremony-01-10-2021
