New York factory built to meet demand from customers in China
ONEONTA, N.Y.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Ioxus, a manufacturer of premium performance ultracapacitor technology for use in transportation, industrial and energy applications, today announced the opening of its second manufacturing facility in Oneonta, New York. The 22,000 sq. ft. plant, located less than a mile from Ioxus’ headquarters, will create increased capacity for both electrode manufacturing and module assembly to meet rapidly increasing demands for Ioxus products worldwide.
Ultracapacitors charge and discharge quickly, making them ideal for voltage support needs and recovering energy that would otherwise be lost. The design of Ioxus ultracapacitors allows for high duty cycle and a sustained high current throughput, which is integral to energy efficiency and achieving the optimum level of energy regeneration.
“Opening our second plant in Oneonta is the culmination of a busy four months for the company. So far in 2014 we announced FlexGen Power and The Long Island Rail Road as new customers, launched the iMOD X-Series™ and received $21 million in series C funding,” said Mark McGough, CEO, Ioxus. “Customers love our products, and that is why we are seeing Ioxus ultracaps designed into a broad array of products including buses, trains, cars, heavy machinery, solar panels and other industrial equipment. The expansion of our manufacturing facilities allows us to meet the supply requirements of major new customers in these applications. Worldwide, Ioxus now utilizes over 100,000 square feet of manufacturing capability in four locations.”
Ioxus’ new site will add more than 30 new jobs in the Oneonta community, increasing the number of US employees to 150.
Additional Ioxus Information:
Ioxus manufactures high performance ultracapacitor technology for transportation, alternative energy, medical, industrial and consumer product markets.

Ultracapacitor-powered uSTART™ available for Class 3 - 6 Vehicles
ONEONTA, N.Y., March 28, 2016 -- Ioxus, Inc., a leading developer and manufacturer of ultracapacitors and energy storage products, announced today that the uSTART™ engine starting system is now being offered as the industry's only drop-in replacement product that needs no special wiring. The Ioxus ultracapacitor-based product is designed to do all of the things that competitive products do not, such as increasing the vehicle bus voltage by greater than 10% during crank, reducing cranking time for more than 20%, reduce peak current to the starter by more than 15%, reduce the cycling seen by the battery by more than 40%, increasing starter life by more than 30%, and provide a built-in jump start system that will allow users to charge the capacitor from adjacent "dead" batteries and eliminate stranded trucks. All without any special wiring—simply drop-in uSTART in place of an existing battery!
The uSTART system from Ioxus is a two-terminal product, eliminating the rewiring required by competitive engine start modules. One of the existing read more...
