We are pleased to announce that Flux Power and our CEO Ron Dutt have been recognized by Food Logistics Magazine for our efforts in bringing our LiFT Pack lithium-ion battery technology to benefit operations in the food and beverage industry supply chain. In Food Logistics’ annual survey, Ron Dutt was named one of Food Logistics Magazine's 2017 Champions: Rock Stars of the Supply Chain.

With over 24,000 subscribers and an active website and social media presence, Food Logistics is the only publication exclusively dedicated to food and beverage industry executives. While industrial battery executives are not often thought of as “Rocks Stars,” we completely agree that Ron is our star, and we are extremely grateful for the food and beverage industry’s acknowledgement of the hard work of the entire Flux team under Ron’s steady leadership. Flux’s press release announcing this honor can be accessed here.

For the past three years, Flux has been singularly focused on transforming the energy storage options available to the food logistics industry and other material handling intensive businesses. Flux’s state-of-the-art lithium forklift batteries deliver improved performance, efficiency, run times and useful life, with little or no maintenance and no risk of acid spills or vapor - all at a substantially lower total cost of ownership. It’s a win-win for the customer and the food logistics industry.

The acknowledgement by Food Logistics underscores the increasing interest, piloting and shipments of Flux LiFT Pack batteries to power multi-shift operations at a growing base of food industry distribution centers across America. Moreover, Flux LiFT Packs are based on safe cell chemistry and are the first UL 2271 listed lithium battery offerings to power forklifts – the indispensable workhorses of food logistics.

We thank Food Logistics for their coverage of important news and trends in the industry and in particular for highlighting how Flux battery solutions can support the future success of food and beverage industry participants. Not only does this honor support our existing dialogues, but the publication’s reach will expand awareness of the coming new age of Flux battery technology to more effectively power food and beverage operations.
