Why Flux is Worth a Closer Look:
Flux targets an estimated $10B market opportunity to convert electric forklift and airport ground service equipment to its state-of-the-art lithium-ion battery power – replacing decades-old lead-acid battery chemistry with a better performing, more energy efficient solution with a significantly lower total cost of ownership.

After 5 years of development, customer piloting and technical and OEM approvals, the lithium-ion battery market has emerged for material handling equipment and demand is accelerating. Flux Q2 revenue rose 126% to $2.7M and six months revenue rose 236% to $4.5M versus $1.4M in the year-ago period and eclipsing FY 2018 full year revenue of $4.1M.

 

Flux’s sales ramp is being driven by industry leading Fortune 500 companies in materials-handling intensive sectors such as food, beverages and logistics. These customers have piloted Flux's solutions and experienced the improved performance, lower total cost of ownership and Flux's strong customer service - and are now rolling out these solutions across their organizations.

Having launched with lithium-ion power solutions for smaller Class 3 walkie pallet jacks, Flux has expanded into much larger, more powerful batteries for Class 1 and Class 2 forklifts. These higher price point solutions are making an increasing contribution to Flux’s ongoing financial performance.
