Yuasa wins innovation award from Boeing

Swindon, Wiltshire

GS Yuasa has been recognised with the 2018 Boeing Company “Supplier of the Year” award in the category of innovation. The battery manufacturer was commended for its high-performance lithium-ion cells for space, as well as for outstanding technical support and contribution to current and future space programmes.

GS Yuasa entered into a long-term agreement with Boeing in 2016 and since then the manufacturer has been supplying a range of space qualified lithium-ion battery cells for the leading aerospace company. GS Yuasa lithium-ion batteries were recognised by Boeing at the 2019 Boeing Global Supplier Conference in Los Angeles, California for their exceptional performance, deployment capability and scalability.

Curtis Aldrich, the President of GS Yuasa Lithium Power commented, “We are humbled to be the recipient of this honour. The recognition of our ongoing commitment to excellence is truly appreciated.

“This award recognises 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.”

As Boeing’s satellite platforms grow and evolve, the energy required to power such applications will also increase. GS Yuasa has therefore developed a technology roadmap in anticipation to meet this exciting challenge. Further lithium-ion cells will be deployed across Boeing's Geostationary and Low and Medium Earth Orbit satellite portfolios.
