About ACC automotive Cells Company

Born in the 2020s, we’re built for the fast-paced, high-tech environment that’s the modern energy industry. We thrive in the world of EV battery technology.

Our new R&D Expertise Center is already up and running in Bruges (Bordeaux), along with a state-of-the-art Pilot Plant in Nersac, France (Nouvelle Aquitaine). Our first Gigafactory is being built in Billy-Berclau Douvrin, Hauts-de-France. Then there’s our new Applied Engineering Center and a second Lithium-ion Gigafactory planned in Germany for 2025. And we've just announced a new Gigafactory in Termoli in Italy.

That’s a total €7 billion of investment, and it’s just the beginning. We’re putting down long-term roots across the world, securing a global network of R&D associates, industrial partners and suppliers.

If you’re passionate about creating cleaner transport – get in touch. The career possibilities in this fast-changing new world are beyond imagination.

Our history

It seems a long time ago, but it was only 2020 when we built our initial R&D Center in Bordeaux. Soon after, we built our Pilot Plant in Nersac. The first gigafactory is due to start operations in 2023 in the Hauts-de-France. Then next to come will be our second gigafactory in Germany in 2025 and a third gigafactory in Italy. Our production capacity will ramp-up until it will reach 120 GWh in 2030. That represents two million batteries annually.
