Originally founded as a mere trade company in 1971, the Joint Venture of EaglePicher, situated in Joplin, Missouri, USA (45% corporate shares), and Diehl Defence, situated in Üeberlingen (55% corporate shares), quickly evolved into one of Europe’s leading manufacturers of special batteries for civil and military applications. Our product portfolio particularly includes activatable thermal batteries, lithium reserve batteries as well as primary and secondary customized battery packs.
Markets for thermal and lithium thionylchloride reserve batteries are limited and subject to hard competition within Europe. However, we increased our competitiveness by systematic investments in our production systems for both thermal and lithium thionylchloride reserve batteries in order to improve our market share in the future. Diehl & Eagle-Picher plan to expand particularly in the battery pack sector. That applies for the civil as well as for the long-established military field, on which our military know-how shows full effect.
