SES Korea to focus on Li-metal battery supply chain and automotive A-samples

High-performance Li-metal EV battery developer and manufacturer SES AI (formerly known as SolidEnergy Systems) has incorporated a subsidiary called SES Korea. The business plans to build a pre-production facility in South Korea to expand its battery supply chain and work on its A-sample joint development agreements with automakers.

SES Korea expects to have about 50 employees by the end of 2022 supporting its automotive A-sample joint development agreements with GM, Hyundai and Honda.

“South Korea is a powerhouse of EV battery development, so we couldn’t be in a better position in terms of having a long-term base in Korea where we will contribute to the development of cell manufacturing equipment and process development, joint development with auto OEMs and supply chain development,” said Vice President and Head of SES Korea Hans Kim.
