Maxwell Technologies and the City of Peoria will have a special grand opening celebration from 2–4 p.m. Thursday at the company’s recently renovated 120,000-square-foot facility at 8644 W. Ludlow Drive.
Maxwell Technologies develops, manufactures and markets energy storage and power delivery solutions. The company, currently based in San Diego, will manufacture new electrode, cell and module components at the Peoria facility.
Maxwell has 15 employees for the facility and anticipates adding an additional 30 over the next year, company officials said. By late 2014, the company anticipates adding engineering, research and product development functions at the facility, they said.
