The French company Forsee Power announces the development of its production plant in Poland
Restructuring and development, a factory that continues to challenge itself.
Paris, 29 April 2019 – After strengthening its positions in France and China, the French company Forsee Power, an expert in smart battery systems, announces the development and restructuring of its second European site, located in Wroclaw, Poland. This plant is dedicated to the manufacturing of Smart Life battery systems (light mobility, medical equipment and portable equipment), mainly for European customers.
In the wake of the announcement of a € 15 million fundraiser from Bpifrance, dedicated to increasing the production capacity of its plant in Poitiers, Forsee Power is boosting and restructuring its Polish plant.
With a production of more than 590,000 battery packs a year, the Polish factory welcomed a new site manager to manage all the operational teams. In office since September 2018, Pawel Jazienicki wants to make the Forsee Power site in Poland a European reference for assembling small industrial batteries.
Already with a strong industrial expertise (Faurecia, Wisi Automotive and Vectrix), Pawel Jazienicki is also surrounded by several expert profiles. The Logistics specialist, product engineer, quality engineer, process engineer, production supervisor, and after-sales service manager all reinforce and consolidate the team already in place, composed of around forty people.
« Before being a global company, Forsee Power is above all a French company and therefore European. I have always been keen to keep factories on this continent, which saw the birth and growth of Forsee Power. Our Polish plant allows us to be closer to our markets for small battery systems, whose demand continues to grow,» says Christophe Gurtner, CEO of Forsee Power.
This new organization, versatile and with strong industrial potential, now presents an opportunity to the Wroclaw site to benefit from all the necessary resources of the local team and to integrate the after-sales service activity of the Smart Life division. This service allows us to support the needs of our Asian scooter manufacturers who export to Europe. With this, Forsee Power Poland will support the growth of the Smart Life business and become a strategic player.
In addition, the Polish plant has the certifications confirming quality management and HSE (ISO 9001, ISO 13485, ISO 18001), compliance with environmental management processes (ISO 14001) and the quality of its products (French Railways SNCF certification SQ900D).
