Savvy manufacturing engineer. Brings technologies from the laboratory to the market. Expert in automated industrial manufacturing processes for battery technologies.
Craig has 35 years of experience in transitioning laboratory technologies to global commercialization in several industries, including: lithium-ion battery development and production, semiconductor thin film deposition, and automated industrial manufacturing and quality systems.
His system design work at EMCORE established the first production MOCVD systems for compound semiconductor materials and devices, inclusive of high brightness LED’s that are now a staple of automotive lighting. Extensive work in production factory automation platforms for various industries led to a specialization in polymer lithium-ion battery manufacturing at Leading Edge Technologies.
Subsequently, as cofounder of Solicore, he developed a patented hot laminateable primary lithium polymer battery for the emerging powered smart card industry. Craig is currently involved in grid scale energy storage technologies.
