Fortu Battery Plant

Fortu

Six years, a major announcement was made that a company called Fortu was building a power cell plant in Muskegon. Of course this was great news or was it?

Last week it was announced that the Fortu plant was never going to be built. http://www.mlive.com/news/muskegon/index.ssf/2015/02/fortu_powercell_factory_will_n.html

I was suspicious that this facility was ever going to be built. In 2009….battery-powered automobiles were getting much attention and Muskegon was anxious for any new industry.

A little research might have found that the proposed battery was not yet fully developed.

“Technology breakthroughs in the advanced battery field are often announced with great fanfare. But often, the companies making these claims disappear without a trace.”

Now that Alevos has bought out Fortu….it remains to be seen how the battery fanfare plays out in North Carolina.
