Developer of 3D printed solid-state batteries Sakuu has opened an engineering hub for its battery platform printing initiatives in Silicon Valley. This multi-million dollar buildout follows the recent opening of the company’s battery pilot line facility currently producing batteries for clients and a successful funding round of 62M secured earlier in the year.

The new Silicon Valley facility is 79,000 square feet and will be used as the flagship engineering hub for Sakuu. Battery, engineering, material science, R&D and additive manufacturing teams will be housed in the building.

 It is estimated to house 115 employees by the first quarter of 2023. The new facility will allow Sakuu to scale its 3D printing battery platform as the company looks to open gigafactories around the world with a total energy output goal of 60GWh by 2028.

Our new facility paves the way for our first 3D printing platform gigafactory, dubbed Sakuu G-One. The facility will allow our teams to fine-tune all aspects of our battery printing technologies to enable swift deployment of our gigafactories”, said Sean Sharif, VP of Global Supply Chain and Logistics.

The new facility will showcase two of Sakuu’s flagship products: the Kavian platform — a 3D printing platform that can rapidly printing safe, ultra-high energy density solid-state batteries in custom shapes and sizes. Secondly, the company’s non-battery manufacturing platforms which can produce medical devices, IoT sensors, and other cutting-edge electrical devices in a highly sustainable and efficient manner.
