Description of location
Manz Italy has been established in April 2014 following the acquisition of the mechanical engineering division of KEMET (formerly Arcotronics).
Arcotronics was founded in 1972 in Sasso Marconi near Bologna and has set worldwide standards for over 40 years in production technologies for capacitors and for nearly 30 years for Lithium batteries. In 1986, Arcotronics pioneered into the battery market supplying winding machines for lithium primary cells. Thus, Manz Italy can draw on long-term experience in engineering, development, and fabrication of semiautomatic and automatic production equipment for Lithium-ion batteries.
