If that is correct, and they do not have production traceability back to individual welders, with / date/day,/ time identification ....then they are F**kin idiots and deserve to loose all their customers. !
With a product value of this level and customer expectations for these packs, to not employ simple proven process tracking is a huge screw up !
GM, Fisker etc are also equally dumb not to insist on 100% traceability which is a common purchasing contract inclusion.
Its not even clear if you can differentiate between USA made cells and Asian made products ( USA marking on both !)
How do such rank armatures get to run these key industries ?
