Battery Resourcers is adding a new location soon in Right to Work Covington, Georgia. This will be the company’s first “commercial-scale battery recycling plant”. But being able to recycle more batteries isn’t the only good thing about this. In order to cover the cost, the company is investing a total of $43 million toward the project. In addition, they also plan to create over 150 new jobs. So this is exciting news for Newton County!
From Area Development Magazine:
“We are looking forward to becoming part of the Covington community and bringing 150 tech jobs to the area.” […]
“As the electric vehicle industry continues its rapid growth, battery recycling has become a vital part of the supply chain, and cutting reliance on unstable areas of the globe has never been more crucial for the future. […] We are thrilled that Battery Resourcers is coming here and look forward to our continued collaboration with our partners in Newton County as they welcome another sustainability-focused company to the area. Following Rivian’s recent announcement that it would make Georgia the location of its second EV manufacturing facility and campus, this news could not come at a better time for Georgia.” […]
“Metro Atlanta is the ideal location for businesses in the electric vehicle and clean energy industries. […] Battery Resourcers will enjoy access to our engineering and manufacturing expertise from local university and technical college systems, our proximity to market, as well as the rapid growth of the industry in Georgia. Congratulations to Battery Resourcers and all of the organizations that partnered to turn this idea into a reality for metro Atlanta.”AREA DEVELOPMENT MAGAZINE
