Tesla Inc started a factory for producing battery manufacturing equipment in the Canadian city of Markham, Ontario, the city said on Friday, as the electric automaker increases the production of cheaper, higher-range 4680 battery cells.

In 2019, Tesla bought Canada-based Hibar, which manufactures pumps used in fast-speed battery assembly that the automaker is introducing for its new 4680 cells.

“I’m delighted to share that Tesla Canada is joining our already robust automotive and technology ecosystem by locating a manufacturing facility in the City of Markham,” the city mayor Frank Scarpitti wrote on Twitter.

“The facility will be the first branded Tesla Canada manufacturing facility in Canada and will produce state-of-the-art manufacturing equipment to be used at the Gigafactories located around the world in the production of batteries.”

Tesla is yet to comment on the mayor’s tweet.
