Stryten Energy Expands Lithium Battery Capabilities with Acquisition of the Assets of Galvion’s Vehicle Power Division

Stryten Energy LLC, a U.S.-based energy storage solutions provider, today announced it has acquired the assets of Galvion Vehicle Power, a division of Galvion Inc., a developer of advanced protective equipment, power management and data solutions for military and tactical clients worldwide.

The acquisition comes as the Biden administration, and notably the U.S. Department of Defense, are redoubling the commitment to boost U.S. manufacturing capabilities of highly specialized lithium-ion batteries. These batteries are vital to U.S. military preparedness, energy security and the advancement of clean energy goals.

Galvion has developed groundbreaking, safe and reliable lithium-ion energy storage solutions to meet demanding military requirements. Galvion’s Symbasys SWitchPack™ and SWATPACK™ lithium battery products will join Stryten’s newly formed Military and Government Division’s suite of power solutions that serves the public sector market. Solutions will include advanced lead and lithium battery technologies for submarines, combat vehicles, microgrids and ground logistics applications.

Energy storage solution companies like Stryten Energy are critical to strengthening America’s supply chain and ensuring access to advanced lead and lithium battery technologies. We are excited to welcome Galvion’s experienced Vehicle Power team to Stryten Energy. The addition of their extensive lithium battery knowledge to our Research and Development group, as well as Galvion’s Vehicle Power Division assets, will provide our customers with next-generation lithium battery technology. This acquisition further solidifies our ability to help lead the transition to a clean energy economy.
