Posted 23 January 2019 · Add Comment

UK developer and manufacturer of batteries, chargers and power management systems, Lincad, is doubling the size of its UK Head Office facilities in Surrey.



Responding to a consistent growth in demand for its products and expert services, Lincad is significantly increasing the capacity of its research, engineering and production functions and also increasing its staff by some 15%.

At the forefront of lithium-ion battery technology, Lincad is ISO 9001 and TickITplus certified with expertise in battery electrochemistry and systems, hardware and software engineering. In addition to product design and manufacture, the company offers a full life cycle product support service, including repairs and upgrades, from the point of introduction into service through to disposal at the end of a product’s lifetime. To augment this after-sales provision, Lincad recently opened a new Service and Maintenance Centre, thereby strengthening its ability to meet the increasing requirement for through life support.

Since 1986, Lincad has been providing military power management solutions for applications ranging in size from handheld soldier radios to explosive ordnance disposal remotely operated vehicles, primarily for the UK MoD and prime contractors in the defence industry. Impressed by the company’s long-established heritage in military markets, a number of industrial customers have also looked to Lincad for their power management requirements.
Recent work has involved the development of a battery for a submersible autonomous inspection vehicle used in the offshore petrochemical industry.

Lincad also works with customers in the medical sector, providing power management solutions for specialist analytical medical equipment and supplying batteries to the NHS to support the vital work of doctors and nurses within the UK. With its long-established relationships with the world’s leading cell suppliers, Lincad is also able to supply customers with commercial off-the-shelf products covering a range of applications and different types of battery electrochemistry.

Janet Rowe, Lincad’s Joint Managing Director, commented: “Based in Surrey for more than 30 years and operating from our present site in Ash Vale since 2009, we have been constantly taking product performance to new limits, producing lighter, more powerful batteries with faster, more flexible charging solutions. It is particularly gratifying that the consistent demand from our customers has made necessary, and fully justified, this large expansion of our current facilities and the creation of a significant number of new jobs.”
