ABOUT American Battery Solutions

Powering tomorrow's energy solutions, today

American Battery Solutions is an industrial and commercial battery manufacturer located in the heart of the U.S. automotive industry. Our team consists of battery systems experts with decades of experience in designing, developing and manufacturing advanced battery systems for the transportation industry. Collectively, we've helped launch some of the industry’s most well-known programs with OEM customers, such as General Motors, Fiat Chrysler, BMW, Daimler-Mercedes and others. 

Backed by a substantial investment from KCK Group, American Battery Solutions acquired manufacturing and battery pack testing assets from Robert Bosch Battery Systems. As we have grown, ABS has assembled a world-class team of dedicated and experienced engineers. This team is equipped with a deep understanding of high-voltage, automotive-grade battery systems—from concept development and prototyping, to testing and validation, to high-volume production. Meaning no one is more qualified to work on a battery or ESS system that can power your energy needs.

Solving the key challenges of electrification

As the world shifts to an electric future, the skills needed to be successful also change. Perhaps the biggest change is the addition of a high-voltage battery system. This transition brings about several key challenges that ABS is well-suited to solve. Successfully developing and integrating these batteries requires a deep knowledge of the battery as a system—since these new generations of energy storage require a knowledge of every engineering field: chemistry, thermal dynamics, mechanical & structural, electronics, electrical, and software. With this knowledge, ABS can solve the challenges of Safety, Performance, Life, Cost and Environment.
