Celestica's facility in Mexico is located in close proximity to a substantial and growing portion of Powin's end market, providing customers with greater supply chain flexibility and responsiveness. The Centipede platform will be assembled and tested on-site at Celestica's facility before it is delivered to project locations. Nearshoring this process as well as consolidating it into a single facility will greatly reduce logistics-related risks such as vessel availability and tariff-related cost volatility. Geoff Brown, CEO of Powin, said, "Our partnership with Celestica marks a significant step in Powin's plans to simplify and secure our supply chain for our North American customers, and we are confident in Celestica's ability to uphold our focus on safety and reliability for our customers. Given Celestica's global scale and capabilities, this partnership also provides Powin with the flexibility to increase our international production capabilities.""Celestica will provide in-region manufacturing, engineering and supply chain solutions to ensure Powin is able to quickly launch and scale its innovative Centipede platform throughout North America," said Todd Cooper, President, ATS at Celestica. "The combination of Powin's commitment to innovation, reliability and safety and Celestica's expertise in building large, complex clean energy products is powering a more sustainable future."
