TODA America, Inc. is a wholly owned subsidiary of TODA KOGYO Corporation, the world’s leading manufacturer of solid state chemistry particles for nearly 200 years.
Located in Battle Creek, Michigan, on an 18 acre brownfield site, the $70+ million Li-ion Cathode Materials plant began construction on April 1, 2010 and completed Phase 1 in February 2011. A recent $24 million+ Phase 2 expansion has been completed in May 2015.
Awarded one of a limited number of licenses from Argonne National Laboratory to produce next generation cathode materials, when at full production the site will produce approximately 3,600 metric tons per year of the highest quality cathode materials. The Lithium-ion products to be produced will include LiNiCoAlO2, LiNiCoMnO2, and LiMnO2.
Cathode materials are the key chemical components of Li-ion Batteries. Applications for these batteries include use in power tools, computers, wind power projects, proposed smart grid concepts, and most visible now – the electric car battery. TODA America is committed to continuing the leading edge presence as a strategic supplier for battery customers worldwide.
