Edinburgh battery technology company Dukosi recently is to double its Scottish workforce after being bought by a US private equity firm.
Dukosi is to recruit 25 new engineers at its offices at Heriot Watt University in what is seen as a major vote of confidence by its new owners KCK.
Dukosi will recruit an entire integrated circuit development team to design, develop and deploy next generation technologies and products.
Nat Edington, CEO at Dukosi, said: “2019 was an incredibly exciting year for Dukosi and we are now looking to build on the positive momentum from our acquisition by KCK. Our technology can have a genuinely transformational impact on the next generation of batteries, at a time when demand has never been higher.
“We have many new exciting products to develop and bring to market in the next few years, and it’s important we continue to build our world class engineering team in key areas.”
Dukosi develops cutting-edge technologies that transform the way batteries are designed, deployed and operated in applications such as electric vehicles, transport, grid energy storage and in industrial uses.
The company was bought by Californian-based KCK in October last year.
