US global safety science company UL Solutions has started construction of its North America Advanced Battery Laboratory in Auburn Hills, Michigan. Completion is expected by mid-2024.
The laboratory’s purpose is to facilitate shorter development cycles, faster times-to-market, and greater global competitiveness for EV and industrial battery OEMs and their suppliers. It will provide electrical, mechanical abuse, thermal fire propagation and environmental testing based on UL and IEC standards, UN goals and initiatives, and Society of Automotive Engineers and OEM specifications.
“We are pleased to welcome UL Solutions to Auburn Hills, where its new laboratory will help North American manufacturers bring safer products to market in the US and for export throughout North America,” said Auburn Hills Mayor Kevin McDaniel.
