June 1, 2023: James Roden has joined ENTEK International’s lead acid separator sales team as North America account manager, the company announced on May 31.
Roden, who has more than 10 years of sales experience in the automotive industry, will be based at ENTEK’s headquarters in Oregon.
ENTEK announced last year that it was to expand its manufacturing of AGM battery separators to India and the US, in response to expanding demand for energy storage solutions for inverters, industrial applications and electric vehicles.
In March, the company said it was also investing $1.5 billion to build a lithium ion battery separator production facility in the US state of Indiana.
The Terre Haute plant, on a 340-acre greenfield site, will be the biggest investment to date by the US-based producer of wet-process lithium-ion battery separator materials, in support of the growing EV industry in Indiana and across the country.
