OKC-based Spiers New Technologies keeps electric vehicles on road with pioneering battery remanufacturing servicesPublished: Friday, August 28, 2020 By: Jim Stafford Source: VeloCity
Spiers New Technologies (SNT) founder Dirk Spiers describes his Oklahoma City-based company as a groundbreaking pioneer and leader of an industry that didn’t exist just a decade ago.
SNT remanufactures, repurposes and recycles those massive battery packs that power electric vehicles (EVs) with names like Nissan Leaf, Chevy Bolt, Ford Focus and more. As many as 2,000 battery packs are shipped monthly into the company’s Oklahoma City facilities, where they are assessed and rehabilitated or put to a new purpose.
“We have created a brand and have established a reputation,” Spiers said. “We are the pioneers and the leaders of this industry by far. Not many people have a 10-year track record in lithium ion traction batteries like we do because it’s developing so rapidly.”
Founded in the final weeks of 2014 with just two employees in 23,000 square feet of rented warehouse space, SNT almost immediately began a phenomenal growth trajectory. Today it employs 70 people in Oklahoma City and operates out of 200,000 square feet of space in its own building along SE 89th Street just east of I-35.
