Georgia notched another EV manufacturing victory when synthetic graphite manufacturer Anovion Technologies announced it will open an $800 million plant in Bainbridge, in south Georgia. The facility, which will employ more than 400 Georgians, will become the largest synthetic graphite plant in North America and a key cog in the nation’s EV battery production pipeline. Graphite is one of the key components in constructing EV batteries, but today the vast majority is produced in China. Georgia is on the cutting edge of reclaiming part of that market share with billions of dollars worth of investments coming to the state as it develops its own supply chain from batteries all the way up to vehicles themselves. Production is expected to begin in 2025 at the 750-acre Downrange Industrial Park in Bainbridge, right near the Florida border in southeast Georgia.
