The leading Polish battery systems manufacturer, Impact Clean Power Technology S.A., has acquired a strategic investor. It is the Polish FAMUR Group, which is investing in the green transformation sector. Owing to the new shareholder’s involvement, Impact can continue its dynamic growth, based on, for example, the implementation of new generations of battery systems, hydrogen-based solutions and the rapid construction of the GIGAFACTORYX.
Impact Clean Power Technology manufactures and integrates advanced energy storage systems based on lithium-ion cells. The company’s new promoted business area is hydrogen fuel cells. The company is also a supplier of large-scale energy storage systems for the RES segment, and of industrial power supply systems. The company’s main product lines are battery systems for road and rail transport as well as stationary energy storage systems for the RES market and traditional power engineering sector, mining industry, railway engineering and robotics.
Impact’s customers are Polish and foreign manufacturers of vehicles, including buses, trams, trolleybuses and rail vehicles with electric drives, as well as companies operating in transport, industrial, power engineering (conventional and RES), railway and telecommunication sectors. One of the Company’s key customers is Solaris, whose significant part of buses are powered by Impact’s battery systems. Other customers include Alexander Dennis Ltd, Voith SE & Co, Kiepe Electric Carrosserie HESS AG, Skoda Electric, and Normet.
– We have built a strong team of engineers and other professionals, owing to whom the next generations of innovative battery systems have been created in our laboratory over the years. We supply Impact Clean Power Technology’s products to markets throughout Europe, the United States and New Zealand. In the area of energy storage, we are involved in ground-breaking RES projects in Poland. With our advanced solutions, we are supporting global actions for a zero-emission economy, including the upcoming hydrogen revolution. We are pleased because the consolidation of the potentials of the FAMUR Group and that of our company will enable us to continue the development in the area of new products as well as increase our production capacity and diversify our customer and supplier base. I believe that our cooperation is a strong stimulus to the development of the RES industry in Poland and worldwide, says Bartek Kras, CEO and co-founder of Impact Clean Power Technology.
As a result of the transaction, the FAMUR Group has acquired the majority share in Impact Clean Power Technology. Through the acquisition of the leading Polish manufacturer of battery systems, FAMUR is entering the next areas related to the green transformation, following last year’s investment in large-scale photovoltaics and PV solutions for the B2B sector.
– In view of the dynamic economic changes and transformation processes in the Polish energy sector, we are consistently changing the FAMUR Group in line with the strategy endorsed last year aiming to transform the Group into a holding company investing in green transformation. The acquisition of Impact Clean Power Technology is consistent with these assumptions. Next to the PV segment, energy storage is another promising area which makes the FAMUR Group’s operations more diversified. Along with TDJ and Impact Clean Power Technology, we want to use the advantages built over the years to develop and scale the business on the growing battery system and energy storage market, says Mirosław Bendzera, CEO of FAMUR SA.
Cooperation between the FAMUR Group and TDJ, which is a stable and long-term investor, supports FAMUR in the green transformation process pursued with Impact Clean Power Technology. Owing to that cooperation, synergies are expected in, for example, the support of the development of production capacities, both short and long term. Cooperation will also enable the acquisition of working capital to increase the scale of operations in the area of battery systems and energy storage, including the diversification of the customer portfolio in Poland, as well as stronger expansion into foreign markets. The consolidation of potentials also aims to develop new products, including a hydrogen cell-based energy storage project.
