AllCell Technologies Hires Tom Nation to Lead Manufacturing Operations

January 24, 2014– AllCell Technologies, producer of safe and long-lasting lithium-ion batteries for transportation and renewable energy applications, today announced the hiring of Tom Nation as VP of Manufacturing.  Nation brings over 30 years of operations, engineering, and product development experience from the automotive industry to assist the rapidly-growing battery firm as it ramps up production capacity.
 
“We are thrilled to have somebody with Tom’s breadth and depth of experience join our team at this critical stage in our growth,” said AllCell CEO Said Al-Hallaj.  “As we continue to add new customers and develop increasingly complex products, Tom’s leadership will be invaluable.”
