A statement from the company said the move was taken to be closer to its most lucrative markets of Australia, Oceania and southern Africa, and also to reduce production costs.
The company has begun talks to lease premises in a Thai free trade zone and has started the paperwork to obtain the necessary licensing and regulatory approvals.
The founder of Redflow is Simon Hackett (below, right) who is better known as the man behind arguably one of Australia's better ISPs, Internode.
“I’m pleased to report that our stack manufacturing equipment from North America has arrived in Thailand ahead of schedule,” he said. ”We remain on track to commence production with our new manufacturing partner MPTS as planned.”
The company said its integration partners had sold ZCell batteries for use in residential and commercial properties in every Australian state and territory except the Northern Territory.
Hackett said most ZCell batteries were deployed in scalable configurations using multiple parallel batteries, which leverage the key technical and economic advantages of the company's technology.
“Popular configurations include 2-6 battery off-grid residential systems and 3-6 battery on-grid residential and commercial systems,” he said.
