Battery Maker A123 Enters Bankruptcy

Further bad news for the electric vehicle market comes with word that A123, the company that owns the largest battery manufacturing plant in North America, has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy this week.

The two A123 manufacturing plants, which have been making batteries for electric vehicles including those built by General Motors and cialis rx Fisker, will be taken over by Johnson Controls, which is acquiring A123's automotive assets.

In addition to its vehicle batteries, A123 also produces cells and batteries for portable equipment, telecommunications and electric grid applications, and stationary power backup systems.

An earlier deal to viagra pfizer buy online sell most of the ownership of A123 to a Chinese manufacturer, the Wanxiang Group, apparently fell through, and the bankruptcy filing coincided, at least in part, with A123 failing to make a scheduled loan repayment to Wanxiang.

Definitely a roller-coaster of a time for EVs these days. We've been watching good and bad stories. Tesler planning long distance, fast charging stations, Toyota withdrawing the iQ, gas prices giving a boost EV and Hybrid sales in California, not to mention many exciting potential breakthroughs in the tech. Some struggling for finance as this story shows only too well.

A123 was a young company that was started by the people who understood technology very well and got supported by investors.

I think they failed, becasue they were outpaced by the competition, but mainly becasue the investors wanted to cash in too fast and push for more profit, instead of online cheap viagra longevity.

The good thing is that the people who started the purchase viagra in canada company and canadian levitra and healthcare the technology that they invented will survive anyway.

Also, HP was their customer and has also troubles now. Interesting how the bad things happen to a group of business friends, instead of just to one.
These things are best left to China

Why should the US be designing and producing batteries anyway? This kind of stuff is best left to the Chinese who have a superior cost/productivity and a massive domestic market amenable to using batteries. If there is an export market for the batteries, the Chinese will exploit it. Best of all worlds.

Whenever I see a reasonable successful enterprise so swiftly move into these sorts of bankruptcy, I always feel there are questions related to administrative costs and executive compensation; whether the original owners and executive board decided to viagra alternetives "cut their losses" or "take the money and run" as the easiest way to maintain whatever profits and associated gains were garnered in the initial years of operation and approved financing, before it became difficult to realize significant5 financial gains in light of increased operating costs and loan payments coming due; it SEEMS more than just coincidental, and in this era of canadian healthcare supreme self-interest, I find it at the very least somewhat questionable as to what actually motivated this extreme action... more info is definitely needed to make an accurate assessment of ethics related to this story.

Kudos to Eco-Vet for recognizing one of the many ways bankruptcy is exploited and used as a tool, not in my opinion as intended by those that crafted the canadian pharmacy laws. As to Petes comments about allowing China with it's alleged superiorty and bright future, I figure he's about 15 years old and/or a fan of Ayn Rand, totally ignorant of the structural changes to our country and economy as the manufactoring sector of our country is being dismantled.
