Panasonic Energy of North America

Leading the charge to powering a more sustainable future

Our Purpose

Here at Panasonic Energy, we set out each day to change the world by accelerating the transition to sustainable energy through the production of safe, high-quality lithium-ion batteries.

Our History

Our journey began in 2017 when Panasonic Energy of North America (PENA) began producing batteries for the world's leading electric vehicle manufacturer at the Gigafactory in Sparks, Nevada. Our operation has since grown to be one of the largest lithium-ion battery factories in the world with a growing workforce of more than 4,000 employees that has surpassed six billion cells delivered and counting. And this is just the beginning.

Our Future

As a next step on our journey, we are expanding our operations into De Soto, Kansas as we strive to increase battery production and further support our long-term commitment to advancing the EV industry in the U.S. and building a better world. 

As the demand for EVs rapidly grows, we continue to innovate our lithium-ion battery technology and production capabilities to achieve greater efficiency and performance in electric vehicles.

Our People

How do we ensure success in our pursuit of a sustainable future? We put our people at the core of everything we do. We are committed to fostering a workplace that embraces diversity and upholds our cultural values. We enable our employees to pursue their dreams. We set out each day to win as a team.
