Arbin is a global leader in manufacturing test equipment for batteries and other energy storage device applications. The battery industry has skyrocketed over the last decade and so has Arbin by nearly quadrupling in revenue over the same period to continue the history of innovation. We invest nearly half our profits back into research & development to ensure we stay ahead of industry trends (and our competitors). As a privately owned company, Arbin promotes a family/team-oriented culture with regular company-wide events and a friendly atmosphere. We have offices around the world in Germany, China, Korea, Taiwan, along with our headquarters in College Station, TX to provide custom support. Additional worldwide representation is available through over a dozen agents. At Arbin, we understand the vital role energy storage plays in our everyday life and its importance to our future. Therefore, we work hard to provide the best service and testing equipment as a tool for both researchers and industry. Our customers include some of the largest electric vehicle manufacturers, consumer electronic manufacturers, universities and research labs, and battery manufacturers around the world. Our products include Materials Research, Battery Test Equpment, Robust Software and more.
Innovation through research and development has been a core value for Arbin since the beginning. We were the first company to offer a multi-channeled potentiostatic/galvanostatic device, multiple current ranges, the ability to simulate telecomm pulses, and now the first to offer true high-precision testing capability for high currents (up to 200A)! This resulted from a three-year ARPA-E project partnered with Ford Motor Company and Sandia National Lab. This is one of several custom engineering projects we have achieved while collaborating with leading industry partners.
Arbin was founded by Dr. John Zhang in 1991, after discovering the need for a more accurate, reliable and robust testing system for electrochemical storage devices. As an electrochemist himself, Dr. John started building the first instrument when the company he was with at the time needed something that was not yet built. Innovation and taking on challenges are the founding principles that, over time, has grown Arbin into the multi-million-dollar, global corporation 30 years later. Dr. John has over ten patents to his name that are utilized in our products and he remains our chief research and development scientist.
2021 is a special year for Arbin as it is our 30th anniversary. We will be celebrating with in-depth podcasts on both the history and future of Arbin and the battery industry, videos, and fun gifts. We are all excited to celebrate this important year and the exciting future ahead. Be sure to head over to our news page for exciting content.
