nanoFlowcell forms nanoProduction

New company plays an important role in the move towards operation as a series-production car manufacturer

 

Research and development firm nanoFlowcell has announced the founding of a new company, nanoProduction. Jens Ellermann, president of the board of directors and Nunzio La Vecchia, chief technical officer of nanoFlowcell, announced the founding of nanoProduction, which will be headquartered in Waldshut in the German state of Baden-Wuerttemberg. The new company will, in the future, be responsible for all aspects of manufacturing technology for the nanoFlowcell group – and marks another milestone in nanoFlowcell's path towards becoming a series-production car manufacturer.

nanoProduction will require a World Manufacturer Identifier permit in order to operate as a manufacturer, and will also act as the group's negotiator when interacting with suppliers and development partners in relation to all matters relating to manufacturing technology. The new body will also be responsible for implementing operational steps and formalities required for homologation.

 

The managing directors of nanoProduction are Hektor Bertschi and Nunzio La Vecchia.

"In founding nanoProduction, we are systematically moving ahead with the measures necessary to obtain the permit to go into series production,” explains La Vecchia. “In addition to meeting the extensive technical requirements for the new Quant, we are also laying the organizational foundations for our undertaking, so as to be able to obtain the series production permit in the very near future.

“At the 2015 Geneva Motor Show in March visitors will already be able to see ample evidence of the dynamic and systematic way in which nanoFlowcell works to carry out its technical and developmental functions. We would like to extend a sincere invitation to all friends – and skeptics too – to visit us on our stand to find out for themselves just what huge potential nanoFlowcell and our latest technical and design developments have. We are an innovative R&D company pushing the absolute limits of what is possible in electromobility. We are pioneers exploring new paths no one has embarked on before. And we intend to leave our mark. Our own, unique mark. A lasting and sustainable mark. And car fans will already be able to see evidence of this in Geneva in March 2015. We are looking forward to the reactions of the visitors to our stand.”
