This includes dozens of customers in diverse markets worldwide,” commented president and chief executive officer Robert L. Kanode.

“We believe our products’ performance, safety, durability, cycle life, and energy density offer a compelling solution. With five years of on-the-road experience and a family of standard and custom products, Valence is well positioned in pursuing a broad base of emerging worldwide markets. In addition, due to our experience and vertical integration Valence can quickly scale as markets mature and grow,” continued Kanode.
