The Monbat Group, a leading manufacturer of lead-acid batteries, acquired EAS Batteries in 2017 to add lithium-ion technology to its energy portfolio. In the five years alongside the parent company, EAS has established itself as a highly qualified niche supplier, implemented new ideas, advanced existing technologies, filed additional patents, developed a new lithium-ion cell line and launched its first standard product, EASy Marine®. Currently, the "Service" business sector is gaining speed, automotive manufacturers are showing growing interest in EAS's technical know-how in cell and battery development. "Monbat is a reliable investor that has massively supported our development - strategically and financially," says Michael Deutmeyer, Managing Director of EAS Batteries GmbH. "Our parent group gives us stability and weight. We also benefit from the fact that Monbat is represented in more than 70 countries and has the corresponding market knowledge."
