TAB, the Mežica-based maker of starter batteries for cars and industrial batteries, has founded a joint venture with the Chinese company Haidi Energy Technology to produce lithium-ion cells in Prevalje.

TAB CEO Bogomir Auprih told reporters TAB-Haidi was expected to launch production in spring 2022. Valued at about EUR 100 million, the plant is to create 300 jobs in the first phase. It will be the first production facility for lithium-ion cells in Slovenia.
