Celebrating 40 Years of Powering The Change!

40th Anniversary

This year marks the 40th anniversary of Celltech, a significant milestone that highlights our journey from a small startup in Sweden to a leading name in the battery industry. Over these four decades, we’ve evolved from focusing on tailor-made alkaline battery packs to acknowledged battery specialists, with our offering ranging from button cells to battery packs and UPS power solutions to highly specialised battery systems for industrial machinery.

The Beginnings: A Shift from the Norm

In 1984, Celltech was established in an industry dominated by lead-acid batteries. With our first battery pack factory in Sweden, we distinguished ourselves by focusing on custom-made alkaline battery packs. This specialisation set the stage for a journey of innovation and expansion, positioning us as a key player in the battery solutions space.

Innovations and Expansions Through the Decades

During the 1990s, we expanded our range of products to include nickel-metal-hydride and nickel-cadmium batteries for various OEM solutions while simultaneously laying the groundwork for developing lithium-ion battery packs. We also continued to foster our relationships with some of the top manufacturers of standard batteries in the world, to complement our range of customised batteries. This period was marked by strategic growth, as Celltech became a part of the Addtech Group and extended its presence across the Nordic countries.

Entering the 2000s, we introduced small lithium-ion batteries tailored for applications in the medical and industrial sectors. During this period, we also ventured into assembling energy storage systems, signalling our readiness to meet the emerging demands of a rapidly electrifying world.

A Vision for Sustainable Electrification

With the dawn of a new decade, our commitment to innovation and sustainability became even more pronounced. We not only entered new markets but also established a battery pack factory in China, further cementing our global presence. Celltech’s vision of being a leading provider of technical solutions for sustainable electrification took shape through the design of complete battery systems for industrial applications, factory acquisitions in Germany and Bulgaria, and the opening of a factory in Finland focusing on industrial vehicle batteries.

Core Values and Sustainability

Our operations are driven by Celltech’s core values that emphasise sustainability, trust, innovation, and customer focus. Our dedication to sustainability is evident in the Celltech Lifecycle model, which ensures solutions with lower total cost of ownership, reduced environmental impact and faster time-to-market. This approach underscores our pledge to not only meet the current needs of our customers but also address the pressing challenges of environmental sustainability.

Expertise and Collaboration

Celltech today is recognised for its comprehensive range of batteries and battery packs, catering to various industries with diverse needs.

Our expertise spans various battery chemistries, enabling us to offer customised solutions that ensure safety, sustainability, and optimal performance. We have built strong relationships with leading global cell, component and battery suppliers. We maintain a robust supplier chain compliance program.

Our commitment to quality and reliability is supported by four specialised test laboratories, third-party testing collaborations, and partnerships with leading scientific institutions.

Electrifying the Future Together

As we celebrate 40 years of battery expertise, we stand ready to illuminate the path to electrification with our unwavering commitment to innovation, quality, and customer-centric solutions. With operations in nine countries and a team of over 400 professionals, we are not just a provider but a partner in sustainable electrification. The future is electric, and we are poised to power the change towards a more sustainable and electrified world.

As we look ahead, we invite everyone to join in our mission to electrify the future together.
