Unifrax Hosts Groundbreaking Ceremony for SiFAB™ Manufacturing Line
As construction continues at the New Carlisle, Indiana facility, the company celebrates its first large-scale silicon fiber production line
The event recognized Unifrax’s ongoing partnership with the State of Indiana and St. Joseph County, along with SiFAB’s continued progress.
Unifrax executives, along with the SiFAB manufacturing team and local and state government officials, kicked off the ceremony at 10 a.m. EDT at the New Carlisle, IN plant, with remarks by John Dandolph, president and CEO, Unifrax.
“Through the support of the State of Indiana and St. Joseph County, we have the ability to leverage our existing New Carlisle facility and add new infrastructure to significantly accelerate the timeline for supplying SiFAB to our customers,” said Dandolph. “It’s a joint effort that we wish to celebrate. And with recent data showcasing SiFAB’s positive results, we’re on track to delivering a technology that can be used in existing processes around the world to help transform the battery industry as we know it.”
The SiFAB manufacturing line was officially announced in June 2021, and earlier this month, Unifrax released data following advanced testing of SiFAB, demonstrating promising performance in multiple battery systems in addition to successful application in roll-to-roll processes in standard manufacturing scenarios.
The new line is slated to create up to 20 jobs by the end 2022, with additional growth anticipated by the end of 2023.
