Our Company

Sakuu is reinventing battery manufacturing and technology via total process and product disruption.

In process, batteries can be rapid printed from the transformative Kavian™ platform in gigafactory settings, which enables mass-scale, cost-effective, and sustainable production to meet global cell demand.

In product, our Swift Print™ solid-state batteries can deliver best-in-class performance and safety in a recyclable and customizable format. Proprietary cell technologies can provide superior energy densities for broad industry applications. 

The big picture impact of our manufacturing and battery technology is profound.
