Cell Impact is building up its business in two phases. Phase I involved quickly securing enough capacity to initially meet the needs of customers and capture business opportunities. It also involved building a larger factory and acquiring new production equipment. In Phase II, the focus is on greatly reducing production costs through a higher degree of automation and smarter processes in addition to being able to handle growing volumes.

2018 - 2019 | New strategy – get started

  • Cell Impact becomes a flow plate producer
  • Begins flow plate production; highly focused on selected customers
  • Approximately 15 employees 

2020 | Phase I - new facility, scale-up

  • Moved to new 6,000 m2 factory
  • Phase-I production build-up with 2,500 m2 production area
  • Ramping up production – North American accounts drive volumes
  • Approximately 30 employees

2021 | Accelerate, ramp-up production

  • EU’s Green Deal triggers enquiry inflow
  • Major Plug Power order
  • Ramping up production
  • +100 employees with 25 engineers/technicians
  • Initiate Phase-II – an additional 2,500 m2 to reach 5,000 m2 production area

2022 | Phase II – new productive process technology, accelerate

  • New concepts and some new processes developed 
  • Straightforward and automated process flows for higher productivity 
  • Significant increase in production area established and gradually popularized with new equipment in response to demand 
  • Began to introduce new compact, automated process technology 
  • The experiences from Phase l and the realization of the future plan during Phase ll represent a strong offer in an accelerating industry 

2023 - | Internationalization

As technology for the hydrogen society is connected to security and industrial policy, localization may become increasingly important. Cell Impact stands ready with factory-in-factory concepts that can be a model for supporting customers locally. Cell Impact Forming™, which is comparatively very easy to build and install, is an important building block here.
