Rosen Visits Lithion Battery Manufacturing in Henderson to Discuss Bipartisan Innovation and Competition Package

Senate-Passed Bill Contains Senator Rosen’s Provision To Support Advanced Manufacturing Jobs


HENDERSON, NV – Today, U.S. Senator Jacky Rosen (D-NV) visited Lithion Battery, a major battery manufacturing company that opened a 140,000 sq ft facility in Henderson last year, where she discussed the Bipartisan Innovation and Competition Package and how it will support domestic manufacturing. Lithion manufactures cells and battery packs serving industrial, medical, robotic, military/defense and energy markets. The Senate-passed bill helps address manufacturers’ supply chain challenges and contains Senator Rosen’sbipartisan amendment to address the skills gap between qualified workers and advanced manufacturing jobs, based on her Advanced Manufacturing Jobs in America Act. Senator Rosen was joined by representatives from the battery manufacturing company.


“Companies like Lithion Battery underscore why we need to get the Bipartisan Innovation and Competition Package across the finish line and bolster our domestic manufacturing capabilities,” dijo el Senador Rosen. “Investing in our American skilled workforce and making things here in America – including right here in Nevada – is the best way to strengthen our supply chains and rebuild our competitive edge in a global economy.” 


“The Bipartisan Innovation and Competition Package supports our longstanding belief that the manufacturing of our cells and battery packs needs to be done here in the US,” said Tyler Armstrong, President and CEO of Lithion Battery. “Our new Lithium Iron Phosphate manufacturing facilities in Nevada contribute towards building a reliable domestic battery supply chain, and the development of a better educated and skilled workforce will allow us to further strengthen our competitive advantage to fulfill electrification needs across multiple industries.”


Senator Rosen has been a leader in fighting for workforce development and strengthening the domestic supply chain. As a member of the Senate Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee, she secured a provisionin the Bipartisan Innovation and Competition Package to support advanced manufacturing workforce development and help to fill the gap caused by the growth of U.S. advanced manufacturing jobs. The overall package would enhance America’s scientific, technological, and industrial competitiveness through investments in research and development, STEM education, cybersecurity, and domestic manufacturing.
