LiNa joins Northern Automotive Alliance (NAA)
The Northwest automotive cluster generates £9bn of the total UK automotive manufacture economy which relates to approximately 12% of the UK total and is the second most significant region for automotive manufacture in the UK.
The NAA rightly believes that the strength of the automotive sector in the North, lies in its diversity. NAA members range from volume car manufacturers to truck and specialist vehicle manufacturers. The NAA offers LiNa some fantastic new networking opportunities.
LiNa is super proud to have joined the NAA. We have already forged some very strong local relationships and are very keen to create more. Currently 16,000 are employed in the northwestern automotive cluster. It is extremely important to us at LiNa that we commercialise our game-changing solid-state battery so that we can significantly increase this number
Gene Lewis, CEO of LiNa Energy

Just like LiNa, the NAA has a strong vision to develop and build upon the North’s rich automotive heritage.
