Cummins Acquires Battery Systems Business for Electric and Hybrid Commercial Vehicles

Cummins has announced the acquisition of Johnson Matthey’s UK automotive battery systems business, a subsidiary that specializes in high-voltage automotive grade battery systems for electric and hybrid vehicles. Your customers will be interested in this news as it further displays Cummins commitment to being a leader in electrification, offering a full range of power options. As one of Europe’s largest lithium-ion battery system suppliers, Johnson Matthey Battery Systems (JMBS) has 50 employees and is based in Milton Keynes, United Kingdom.

The acquisition of JMBS allows Cummins to expand its electrification and energy storage capabilities as it strives to be a global leader in electrified power.

“The addition of Johnson Matthey Battery Systems’ technical expertise and customer base in markets that are more rapidly adopting electrification further positions us as a global energy storage supplier,” said Tom Linebarger, Chairman and CEO, Cummins Inc. “By combining our electrification capabilities within a portfolio of diverse power solutions supported by our global network, Cummins is uniquely positioned to help customers succeed with high-quality products across the spectrum of power solutions they use, whether it’s electric, diesel, natural gas or other energy solutions.”

This high-voltage battery expertise of Johnson Matthey Battery Systems complements the recent Cummins announcement around the acquisition of Brammo, which is known for designing and developing low-voltage battery packs for mobile and stationary applications. The combination of these two units gives Cummins capability across the entire range of energy storage options.
