Sven Simon, Member of the European Parliament, Visits Exide’s Advanced Manufacturing Facility in Büd

Battery manufacturer Exide Technologies, a global provider of stored electrical energy solutions, today hosted a visit by Sven Simon, Member of the European Parliament, at its manufacturing plant in Büdingen, Germany. The visit included discussions about Exide’s industrial and environmental activities, and the future of battery technology in reducing carbon emissions.

Simon, a member of the Christian Democratic Union party of Germany (CDU), was elected to the European Parliament for the first time in 2019. The MEP, a law professor with an interest in sustainable growth, was briefed on the innovation and next-generation manufacturing being conducted at the Exide plant, and also received an official tour.

Exide, as a member of EUROBAT (the Association of European Automotive and Industrial Battery Manufacturers), is engaged in efforts to decarbonize the battery industry. As it aims for sustainability in energy production and storage, its strong investment in R&D has put it at the cutting edge of battery solutions in the steady transition to a decarbonized energy sector.

“We were delighted to welcome Sven Simon MEP to our facilities in Büdingen,” said Karsten Kurz, Director of Environmental Affairs, Europe, at Exide Technologies. “We spoke about high-quality manufacturing jobs, growth opportunities in the battery market, and the ability for battery technology to bring stability to energy markets and reduce dependence on fossil fuels.”
