Since 2011, the Headquarters of Nilar is located in the municipality of Täby in Stockholm, Sweden. The Täby office consists of our highly experienced management team as well as a dedicated sales and marketing department. One of the Headquarter’s main focuses is to ensure that Nilar continues to approach the market with new, innovative and nickel-metal-hydride based energy storage solutions. Both managers and staff are dedicated to satisfying the demand of our customers for renewable energy storage, from the initial contact to delivery and installation. That is one of the pillars of how we build long-term relationships with our customers.
The Nilar state-of-the-art factory has been in use since 2012, when the first industrial production line and battery development laboratory was implemented at the premises in Gävle, Sweden. Today, our passionate and skilled staff ensures the high quality of every product that leaves our factory, through the synchronised production process from battery cell to fully functional system. Furthermore, the Battery Management System used for the Nilar energy storage solutions is developed in-house at the Gävle premises by our skilled software developers. The premises also host our team of R&D experts, chemists and engineers with the advancement of all sustainable energy storage aspects as their main focus.
Located near the heart of Colorado, Denver, Nilar was the birth place for the first commercially available bi-polar NiMH battery. The operations started in the US in 2001, when the company was registered and recruitment of experienced engineers was begun. Having published more than 50 patents, Nilar has become a leader in NiMH technology. The US staff is now dedicated to engineering services in addition to sales and marketing. The department provides engineering consultation into a customer’s system design and has in-house capabilities to perform conditional and validation testing. If applications out-scale the in-house capabilities, the department can utilise the testing facilities in Sweden to carry out more extensive product scenarios to a customer’s benefit.
