Evercel Inc. (Danbury, CT) completed the installation of its first automated production line in the Newport News, VA, facility. The company expects to begin production of its Evertroll trolling motor battery in early October."This is probably the most significant milestone for the company," commented Robert L. Kanode, president and CEO. "We are beginning a production of our first commercial product in the United States, with initial orders in hand and a strong commitment from the distribution channels for rapid growth. Our team in Virginia really distinguished itself in getting the facility up and running."The facility is undergoing final equipment examinations while staff is trained. When the production line is running at full capacity, it will have the capability of producing 8,000 batteries per month.
