R&D, Production

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.

Denver, USA

Place of Origin

Colorado was the birth place of the first commercially available bi-polar NiMH battery and the genesis of Nilar as a company. The operations started in the US in 2001, when the company was registered and recruitment of experienced engineers was begun. Having published more than 80 patents, Nilar has become a leader in NiMH technology. Over the years, the capabilities have been consolidated to the Sweden offices. However, the roots of the company will always have a place in the US.
