about us



Zwickau & Paderborn

INTILION GmbH is divided into two locations.

INTILION GmbH, which is 100% owned by the HOPPECKE Group, is engaged in the development and provision of innovative, individual lithium-ion energy storage solutions and in this context also offers its customers future-oriented business models for industrial applications.

Our focus is on the three application areas: Stationary energy storage systems for the intermediate storage of regenerative energies, drive energy storage systems for industrial trucks such as forklifts as well as high-voltage systems for the drive of trains and other heavy-duty applications.



Dr.-Sinsteden-Straße 8 | 08056 Zwickau

Zwickau is the central value-added location of INTILION GmbH.

Founded originally as HOPPECKE Advanced Battery Technology GmbH in 2008, it focuses on the triad of research, development and production.In 2011 the construction work for our modern research and development centre was completed.

Since then, innovative technologies and services for energy storage have been developed here in order to always be able to offer the best and most advanced battery systems.

In the manufacturing area, INTILION concentrates on future-oriented lithium-ion batteries and the assembly of complex energy storage systems. These are used in our three product areas energy storage applications, traction applications and railway applications. The development and production of charging technologies as well as electronic monitoring and control systems are also based in Zwickau. These are important components for optimizing energy requirements and system availability. INTILION GmbH in Zwickau currently employs around 90 specialists and managers from the fields of product development, laboratory, design, production, quality, purchasing, logistics and administration.



Wollmarktstraße 115c | 33098 Paderborn

The location Paderborn was founded in the middle of 2018. Here we focus on the product area of stationary storage systems in the context of the energy revolution. This is supported by individual teams for sales, engineering and development. In addition, important strategic central divisions will be combined at this location. Lithium Sourcing, for example, selects globally active suppliers and establishes long-term strategic partnerships with them in order to cover our high demand for lithium cells. The site is also home to the Digital Innovation unit. The Digital Innovation unit uses new methods primarily to develop digital topics such as the establishment of digital distribution channels, the determination of business models, e-commerce, data analytics and the development of dashboards.

Started as a small innovation team in temporary office space, we moved into our CoWorkingSpace and MakerSpace at the beginning of 2019. In the CoWorkingSpace we have focus and shared desk – workplaces, meeting rooms, social meeting places and a large event area. This area serves both for focused work and for a constant exchange with cooperation partners and start-ups. In the MakerSpace we concentrate on the development of new products as well as on prototyping and testing.

Today there are about 35 employees at the location. We cultivate an open, transparent and focused cooperation in a modern working environment, completely in the spirit of New Work.


Electrochemical energy storage systems are in our DNA

On April 01, 2019 we bundled all our lithium activities in INTILION GmbH. The INTILION GmbH is 100% owned by the HOPPECKE Group. The HOPPECKE Group is globally positioned, medium-sized, owner-managed and has its headquarters in Brilon-Hoppecke. For over 90 years we have been developing and manufacturing electrochemical energy storage systems for industrial applications to the highest quality standards.
