April 7, 2023
The project will create 642 new jobs and is supported in part by a $200 million grant from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) as part of the recent Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.

ENTEK will build a new production facility in Terre Haute, Indiana. The company, which produces ‘wet-process’ lithium-ion battery separator materials, will invest $1.5 billion to open four building on a 340-acre greenfield site. The project will create 642 new jobs and is supported in part by a $200 million grant from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) as part of the recent Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.

In a recent quote, Larry Keith, ENTEK’s CEO, said, “We chose Terre Haute for many reasons including the excellent workforce opportunity, the incredible support provided by Steve Witt and the Economic Development Corporation, a nearly shovel ready construction site with available utilities located in an industrial park, excellent vocational education, and the business-friendly incentives from both the state and local governments.”
