The move comes as part of a significant investment programme carried out over the past twelve months and is designed to prepare the manufacturer of bespoke batteries and charging systems for successful and sustained long-term growth.

As part of the wider investment activity, Lincad has tripled its engineering, research and development facilities and increased its PCB manufacturing space. The company has also purchased additional automated cell testing equipment as well as equipment to provide specialist humidity testing, expanding its in-house testing provision and ensuring the continuation of its stringent quality assurance processes.

Janet Rowe, Joint Managing Director of Lincad, says of the investment: “Doubling the capacity of our Surrey premises and investing in our battery testing facilities is a significant achievement for Lincad, especially during these economically challenging times.

“Our financial commitment is helping us prepare for our longer-term future, keep pace with current demand and strengthen our position, not just in the military sector that we primarily serve, but across other key industries and areas in which we work.”

Lincad is classified as a ‘critical’ supplier to the defence sector and has therefore remained fully operational to support its customers with defence and medical battery production during the Coronavirus pandemic.

Lincad is at the forefront of lithium-ion battery technology, taking product performance to new limits and producing lighter, more powerful and more energetic batteries than ever before. Alongside its range of specialist batteries, Lincad’s product portfolio includes a range of robust chargers that offer faster, more flexible charging solutions for military and other applications, including those in the medical, industrial and commercial sectors.
