|The Bessemer City location of Livent recently completed an expansion that increases their lithium hydroxide manufacturing capacity by 50%.|
According to the company, Livent is the original lithium company in the U.S., founded in 1940. They say that they are poised to profit from the increased need for electric vehicle batteries. In 2019 Livent had 900 acres and 240 employees. It is unclear how many employees they have after this most recent expansion.
