GS Yuasa Lithium Power Awarded 2018 Boeing Supplier of the Year for Innovation

05/16/2019

GS Yuasa Lithium Power (GYLP) was presented with the 2018 Supplier of the Year Award from The Boeing Company (Boeing) in the category of Innovation at the 2019 Boeing Global Supplier Conference in Los Angeles, California.

GYLP and Boeing entered into a Long-Term Agreement in April 2016 for the supply of a range of space qualified lithium ion battery cells. These cells can be deployed across Boeing’s Geostationary and Low and Medium Earth Orbit satellite portfolios in support of both commercial and government applications.

“GS Yuasa worked with Boeing to understand the mission requirements of their satellite platforms in order to offer energy solutions that meet their needs,” stated William Moll, former President of GYLP and current Chairman of the Board. “As Boeing’s satellite platforms grow and evolve, the energy requirements are expected to grow as well. GS Yuasa has developed a lithium ion cell technology roadmap to be ready to meet the challenge.”

Curtis Aldrich, the President of GYLP commented, “We are humbled to be the recipient of this honor. This recognition of our ongoing commitment to excellence is truly appreciated. This award recognizes not only the hard work of the GS Yuasa team to provide best-in-class products and service, but also acknowledges GS Yuasa’s vision of continual enhancement of our space qualified cell portfolio. The Generation 4 chemistry of GS Yuasa Technology’s (GYT, Kyoto, Japan) LSE product line allows Boeing to increase the energy density in their satellite platforms without changing the existing space qualified battery designs.”
