McPhy specialized in zero-carbon hydrogen production and distribution equipment (electrolyzers and hydrogen stations) announced that it is having a new industrial site dedicated to the development and mass production of hydrogen stations.
Operational from March 2022, this new factory will bring together the research and innovation, engineering and production activities currently based in La Motte-Fanjas and Grenoble, as well as support functions. From 2022, the factory will multiply McPhy’s hydrogen station manufacturing capacities sevenfold, from 20 to 150 units per year, and create over 100 direct jobs, at full load, in the Grenoble area.

The Group will also implement a new integrated test platform and demanding lean manufacturing processes based on digital manufacturing tools, with the aim of mass-producing its new range of stations for refueling all types of vehicles: light vehicles, buses, trucks or trains.
Additionally, in March 2022, McPhy will move into the heart of Grenoble, renting a 4,000 m2 existing industrial building. The teams currently spread between the La Motte-Fanjas and Grenoble sites will be brought together there.
