LAYOFFS!! at another plant Obama said was a Success

01 Dec

Layoffs at another plant Obama said was a “Success”! Celgard a maker of electric vehicle batteries but this should be no surprise to anyone how many electric vehicle batteries company have had layoffs and closer in the past 3 yrs?

celgard

Celgard like other electric vehicle batteries company also got a large grant of 49 million dollars of taxpayers money to create 300 jobs,Celgard did create the jobs it promised but now has to layoff 40 of that 300. The reason for the layoffs not enough demand for the batteries and why is this simple there is no demand for electric vehicles. Right now electric vehicle only have one class of buyer and that is the rich the price tag for most if not all-electric vehicles is far more them most middle class family’s can afford and for the poor it just not going to happen .will there be more electric vehicle batteries company layoffs and plant closing I think so , but time will tell

(Edit) as one of our reader pointed out Celgard makes battery separators not the batteries themselves

    Celgard doesn’t manufacture batteries, idiot. They make a component that goes in batteries called “separators”. The demand for EDV is VERY sluggish worldwide; therefore the demand for their separators has slowed down. It is a simple matter of supply and demand, that which affects all companies. They aren’t closing their doors and still employ hundreds of people in the Charlotte region so your whining about this is moot. They are still a successful company, but doing what any intelligent company should do – align their business model to the financials. The demand will pick back up once the world adopts the electrification of vehicles. This is not to be likened to the other Obama failures.

      http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/50030588#.ULw1qIOCnX8 as you can see i’m not the first one to refer to them as battery makers not a excuse just a point. I also talked about supply and demand . ALSO I “NEVER”said it was a Obama failure you did that all on your own.

        You are likening this layoff to other Obama-failed companies and this clearly is not one.

        Yeah, lots of news outlets have been getting it wrong for years. So, you’re saying that because someone else did it wrong, you’re off the hook? The news outlets, as well as you, should have done due diligence in fact checking prior to ill reporting. Just goes to show that not everything the world sees or hears in the media is correct all the time. But, boy, if there are any potentially inflammatory “facts” for folks to latch on to, they will with a quickness!

    never said that I was off the hook If you read my comment I said it was not a excuse.So i take full credit for my mistake unlike most news outlets, as far as the “You are likening this layoff to other Obama-failed companies” Its all on how you read it .
