Sunlight: Leader in the global battery industry

SYSTEMS SUNLIGHT SA is in its fourth decade of dynamic growth, strengthening its activities in the Greek and international market. It has a global presence in the sector of integrated energy solutions and specialises in the development, production and marketing of batteries and energy storage systems for industrial, consumer and hi-tech applications. 

The company maintains its production capacity by 2 units in Greece, while, through a purely extrovert business, it plays an important role in international business: it has a strong presence through subsidiaries in USA, Italy and Romania, and exports 90+% of its production to more than 100 countries.

SYSTEMS SUNLIGHT is among the top producers of energy storage solutions globally, offering integrated solutions in extremely demanding sectors such as Industry, Supply Chain and Transportation, Telecommunications, Construction, Information Technology, Infrastructure Projects and Defence.

SUNLIGHT plays an important role in the international lead battery market for Electronic Industrial Vehicles (eIVs) maintaining a share that approaches 10% of the global volume of sales in this field.

The communication message “Reliable Battery Solutions” encapsulates the company’s vision of being the most reliable partner and the number-one choice of clients in the battery sector, operating with integrity and imparting value throughout its business ecosystem.

SYSTEMS SUNLIGHT’s development centre is its state-of-the-art complex in Neo Olvio, Xanthi. The complex consists of the production plant, the logistics centre and the research centre where it develops its innovative products. The company's specialised R&D department is staffed by highly trained Greek scientists, and, within the framework of exchange of know-how, it collaborates with other research centres around the world.

In recent years, the company has invested systematically in expanding its network of state-of-the-art facilities, which operate in accordance with the strictest international standards, having been certified for systems management in the sectors of quality, environment, and occupational health and safety.

Putting the circular economy principle into practice, in 2015 SYSTEMS SUNLIGHT invested €31 million to create the SUNLIGHT Recycling plant in Komotini; the most modern lead battery recycling unit in Europe. The plant provides a large portion of lead raw material and has a recycling capacity of 25,000 tons of used batteries per year. The unit creates value for the company and for the domestic economy, actively contributing to sustainable development and achieving high environmental performances while creating 840 direct and indirect jobs and helping to reduce currency outflow from the country by €40 million annually.

In 2019, having carried out a multiyear intensive research plan, SUNLIGHT presented Li.ON FORCE, the first line of “smart lithium batteries“ for electronic Industrial Vehicles (eIVs) and thus entering into the very promising market of lithium batteries for eIVs.
