Amplify Cell Technologies—a joint venture between Accelera by Cummins, the zero-emissions business unit of Cummins; Daimler Trucks & Buses; and PACCAR (earlier post)—recently broke ground at its new battery cell manufacturing plant in Marshall County, Mississippi.

The 500-acre site will be home to a two million-square-foot, energy efficient facility with an annual manufacturing capacity of 21 GWh for the production of lithium-iron phosphate (LFP) battery cells. Amplify plans to begin battery cell production in 2027 and is expected to create more than 2,000 US manufacturing jobs.

The new facility will produce LFP battery cells, a cell chemistry chosen for its durability and cost-effectiveness. This initiative will localize the battery supply chain, making it more robust and responsive to the needs of the growing electric commercial vehicle market in North America.

Accelera by Cummins, Daimler Truck and PACCAR have committed a combined $2- to $3-billion investment in this joint venture and each own 30% of Amplify Cell Technologies. EVE Energy serves as the technology partner with 10% ownership and contributes its industry-leading battery cell design and manufacturing expertise to the venture.

EVE Energy is a global technology leader in the manufacture of LFP battery cells for the vehicle industry.
