FREMONT, Calif., Oct. 04, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Enovix Corporation (“Enovix”) (Nasdaq: ENVX) the leader in the design and manufacture of next generation 3D Silicon™ Lithium-ion batteries, today announced the company is celebrating Fremont Manufacturing Week and U.S. Manufacturing Day, hosting multiple student tours with the City of Fremont and actively hiring positions throughout the company.
“We’re thrilled to open our doors to local students who are interested in learning more about U.S. innovation and manufacturing,” said Harrold Rust, Co-founder, President and Chief Executive Officer of Enovix. “While we still have to rely on global supply chains for some of our inputs, Enovix is one of the few companies that assembles its battery cells in the U.S. The City of Fremont is a hub for U.S. battery innovation and continues to be a great location for our company due to its support of commercial manufacturers and its large pool of qualified talent.”
“Manufacturing Week is a celebration of Fremont’s industries and our youth,” said Lily Mei, Mayor of Fremont. “A single tour can spark curiosity, quite literally opening doors for students of diverse backgrounds into the world of innovation that exists in their backyard. Among the world-class companies participating this year is Enovix, who is hosting their inaugural Manufacturing Week tour at their newly commissioned Fab-1 battery manufacturing facility in Fremont. We are grateful of Enovix’s continued investment and excited for students to experience the company’s technology development firsthand.”
Manufacturing (MFG) Day began in 2012 and is observed by the U.S. Department of Commerce on the first Friday in October. The Enovix leadership team will host several tours during the week so local students can learn more about the history of the company and see its Fab-1 manufacturing facility in action. The company began shipping its first commercial battery cells earlier this year.
“It’s an exciting time at Enovix and I’m incredibly proud to share how far we’ve come in just over a year with students who are eager to learn more about manufacturing and what sets us apart,” said Tom Surrette, Senior Vice President, Operations of Enovix. “We co-locate operations and R&D so a day doesn’t go by when we aren’t innovating. We’re happy to show students and local officials our products, equipment and manufacturing process and demonstrate what it looks like to ramp a new, breakthrough technology and process.”
Enovix is hosting students from Mission Valley ROP High School Vocational Program and Cal State East Bay. To find more information on open positions at Enovix, please visit: www.enovix.com/careers.
