Pacific Fuel Cell Corp. Announces Plans for Increased Production of Bipolar Plates in Willoughby, Ohio Manufacturing Facility

TUSTIN, CA | Posted on June 9th, 2007

George Suzuki, President, stated, "I am very pleased with the progress of our bipolar plate production, which began in March of this year. It took only 3 months to ramp up and fill the first shift production. We are adding more equipment, planning a second shift of operation, and evaluating the feasibility of weekend work. There is more work out there than we initially anticipated and are working towards greater efficiency and continued quality while production increases. We believe that PFCE represents a new type of high technology component manufacturing company in the fuel cell industry."

Bipolar plates are a key component of the fuel cell system. When we receive low volume orders, production is done on a NC milling machine. When the production volume is high, molding presses are the manufacturing equipment of choice, which is a much more cost effective production method. Some of our customers are on the verge of placing high volume orders. We believe that PFC is the only specialty component manufacturer that has the right type of equipment and materials to efficiently process large orders at this time.
