'Industry Powerhouse' Forms in Woodridge as Palladium Acquires MicroSun

Woodridge is now home to the largest battery pack integrator in America and Europe.

Chicago-based lithium battery manufacturer, Palladium Energy, announced last month that it had acquired MicroSun and will be moving from its Lisle headquarters to MicroSun's Woodridge building. 

MicroSun's president and COO, John Gatti, is now president and CEO of Palladium, which will be increasing the square footage of the company's Woodridge office space—making it the largest battery pack integrator in the America and Europe. 

Here's what the company had to say about the aquisition:

This acquisition forms an industry powerhouse, offering a robust portfolio of power solutions that includes custom battery packs, battery chargers, docking stations, power supplies and electromechanical assemblies for a wide variety of markets including medical, military, commercial, industrial and consumer electronics.

By bringing both companies together under the Palladium brand, the company leverages innovative and best-of-breed technical solution teams, extensive supplier relationships, superior testing and qualification capabilities and global lean manufacturing processes to lead the industry in power solutions for mission critical devices.

We're also pleased that John Gatti, former MicroSun president and chief operating officer, will succeed Art Salyer as president and CEO of Palladium Energy. Art will take on the role of chief advisor through the transition.
