LINDEN, N.J. — Turtle & Hughes has entered into a supplier partnership with Cadenza Innovation, an award-winning provider of the patented and UL-listed supercell design for manufacturing safe, high-performing, low-cost lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries. This advances Turtle’s commitment to greener solutions for business with an emphasis on enabling achievement of its customers’ sustainability goals.
“Our focus on sustainable products and solutions led to this strategic partnership,” commented Kathleen Shanahan, Turtle & Hughes CEO. “Like Turtle, Cadenza Innovation has proven to be an industry leader in developing ground-breaking technology that will help solve our critical environmental challenges. Additionally, as a woman-owned diversity business ourselves, we were attracted to Cadenza Innovation, which was founded and is operated by CEO Christina Lampe-Onnerud, one of the world’s pre-eminent battery experts, the former founder, international chairman and CEO of Boston-Power and previous chairwoman of the World Economic Forum’s Global Future Council on Energy Technologies.”
“Together, we bring key advantages in technology and market access to penetrate the lithium-ion battery energy storage space,” said Lampe-Onnerud. “Turtle has broad and deep customer relationships built over its almost 100-year history, and an experienced technical sales team backed by highly competent logistics and back-office capability to help accelerate our growth. Our firms also share a commitment to combating climate change while helping our customers and partners do the same.”
Today’s announcement is being issued concurrently with The Battery Show North America, one of the country’s largest and most comprehensive advanced battery manufacturing trade shows.
Turtle & Hughes entered the energy storage market in 2019 with the launch of Turtle Energy Storage Services (TESS) under the leadership of Ken McCauley, Executive Vice President. TESS was a natural extension of Turtle’s expertise in building sustainable resilient redundancy in the delivery of energy services. It also aligned with the company’s focus on expanding its sustainable solutions to customers, which include: microgrids, EV charging, lighting upgrades, and solar & wind balance of systems.Tagged with Turtle and Hughes
