Global Graphene Group (G3) announces the consolidation of Angstron Energy Company (AEC) into Honeycomb Battery Company (HBC), effective February 28, 2020. G3 is the holding company for both organizations, in addition to Taiwan Graphene Company (TGC) and Nanotek Instruments. This structure change brings the world-class energy storage and battery R&D and manufacturing expertise from both AEC and HBC together under one leader, Dr. Aruna Zhamu, G3 co-founder and HBC President.
“The combination of these two businesses will create a powerful energy storage and battery products company with some of the best technology and products in the market,” said John Davis, G3 Chief Operating Officer. “With the good leadership of Dr. Aruna Zhamu as HBC’s Global President, the future is very exciting.”
“We’re primed for rapid development and commercialization of our energy and battery products with the combined resources and expertise under HBC,” said Dr. Aruna Zhamu. “Bringing our Si anode and current collectors to market is a priority for HBC for 2020. I look forward to continuing to lead this team and growing our business.”
G3 is pleased to announce additional leadership changes. Adam Quirk, formerly VP of Business Development, has been promoted to TGC Global President. In this new role, Quirk will manage G3’s TGC organization, which manufacturers graphene raw materials, thermal management products and nanocomposite products. Stuart Blair, formerly Director of Finance, was promoted to Vice President of Finance. Bob Crouch, formerly Director of IP, was promoted to Vice President of Legal Affairs. These promotions round out the company’s executive leadership team.
