Battery plant up and running
HOLLAND, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A West Michigan plant that makes lithium ion batteries is now up and running.
The LG Chem plant was built in Holland two years ago and was supposed to start cranking out batteries for the Chevy Volt last year.
But slow sales of the Volt delayed production.
The company says it finally ramped up production last month.
The lithium ion batteries require a settling period before use so LG Chem expects to make its first shipments in late September or early October.
