Ballard announces narrowed focus and further cost reductions at Protonex subsidiary


As a result of its strategic review in 2017, Ballard Power Systems has implemented certain changes at its subsidiary Protonex, including to narrow and sharpen the focus of its business by divesting certain non-core assets.

This divestiture is expected to yield annualised cost savings of $1.4m per year. This action is in addition to steps taken in August 2017 to reduce and align the Protonex cost base, a press release explained. Together, these actions are expected to yield annualised cost savings of $2.6m, better positioning Protonex to deliver future profitability.
