With its VARTA brand, Johnson Controls says it is Europe's largest supplier of stop-start batteries.

Less than a month after announcing the dissolution of their joint venture, Saft and Johnson Controls have announced separate battery projects, the former’s involving a lithium-ion battery plant in Jacksonville, FL, and the latter’s involving a new lead-acid battery plant in China. Saft on Sept. 16 held a grand opening for its plant in Jacksonville, FL. Military hybrid vehicles are among the targeted applications. Johnson Controls is investing $100 million to build a battery plant in China (site to be determined) using its absorbent glass mat lead-acid technology. The plant will supply global and local automakers in Asia and is expected to start production in early 2013.
