Innovations portfolio company Nexeon, which is developing advanced silicon materials for next generation rechargeable (Li-ion) batteries, has announced the opening of an office and development laboratory in Japan. Nexeon Japan K.K. is located in Yokohama, closer to many of Nexeon’s development partners and prospective customers in the electronics and automotive sectors.
The new office and laboratory are situated on the Hakusan High-Tech Park, a complex for advanced technology companies and knowledge-intensive products, providing opportunities for talent and technological exchanges between companies.
Dr Scott Brown, CEO of Nexeon, said:
“Establishing a base in Asia is very important for Nexeon. We shall be much closer to several of our key target markets where we already have good relationships with customers - for whom we are developing application specific solutions - and with complementary technology providers.”
