Lithuanian battery management system (BMS) manufacturer EMUS opened its first foreign office in Greenville, South Carolina.
“Many factors came together in choosing the Upstate region: South Carolina is famous for engineering companies, home to major OEMs, the closest time zone to Europe and [has] a balanced cost of living with ease of access to international airports,” says EMUS USA CEO Vaidotas Rutkauskas.
Located in Greenville’s Merovan Center, the new office sells BMSs for EVs, robotics and energy storage systems, and provides customer support for integrators, battery-pack assemblers and automakers.
In addition to manufacturing, EMUS is looking to innovation. According to the company, data scientists from Lithuania’s Kaunas University of Technology are working with the company to “develop advanced machine-based learning algorithms to improve battery-cell life span and provide customer insights for better battery system utilization.”
