Lithium-ion battery maker names new president

EnerDel, an Indianapolis-based producer of automotive lithium-ion batteries, has named a new president, the company announced today.
 
Richard L. Stanley is a former president of Remy Inc., which makes automotive electronics and hybrid power systems, among other products. Pendleton-based Remy is the largest division of Remy International (formerly known as Delco Remy International).

 
Stanley assumes the leadership duties from Ulrik Grape, who has been appointed president of Ener1 Europe. EnerDel created the European division to meet growing demand for electric drive and battery technology among the continent’s top automakers, the company said.
 
Last month, EnerDel received a $118.5 million matching grant from the federal government to double the size of its original plant on Hague Road.

EnerDel also is in the running for a $480 million grant to build a new plant to power electric vehicles. The company has 150 employees at two factories in Indianapolis that are the first, and so far only, commercial-scale automotive lithium-ion battery manufacturing plants in the country.
 
EnerDel also announced today that it has hired another former Delco Remy executive. Robert Lawson, who managed the company’s global automotive manufacturing operations, will become EnerDel’s vice president of business development for North America.
