Ultium Cells Celebrates Construction Milestone

February 19, 2021

Ultium Cells, the battery joint venture between General Motors and LG Chem's LG Energy Solution in Lordstown, Ohio, celebrates the completion of the steel building structure after 10-months and 500,000 construction build hours.

About 85 members of Ironworkers gathered to sign the final beam of the structure, which in the near future will turn into a 2.8-million-square-foot plant.

The site will be completed by mid-2022 and be able to produce 30 GWh of lithium-ion battery cells annually (with an option to expand), employing more than 1,100 people.

GM and LG Chem agreed to jointly invest $2.3 billion in the venture to secure lithium-ion cell supply for the entire range of new electric vehicles.
