Midwest Automotive Parts Supplier Converts from Propane Forklifts to European Electric Trucks Powered by Flux LiFT Pack Lithium-Ion Batteries
Vista, CA – September 5, 2018 -- Flux Power Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: FLUX), a developer of advanced lithium batteries for industrial applications such as electric forklifts and airport ground support equipment, announced today it has secured a $350,000 order to provide Flux LiFT Pack X Series 48 volt, 600 ampere hour batteries and chargers for a Midwest automotive parts supplier. The customer is converting from propane power to leading European electric counterbalance trucks powered by Flux’s pioneering lithium-ion batteries.
Lithium-ion-powered electric forklifts offer a range of benefits over propane powered vehicles, with lower energy costs, greater flexibility and uptime, reduced maintenance expense, the elimination of emissions and a lower total cost of ownership being primary advantages.
The purchase order, Flux Power’s first for European electric counterbalance trucks and also its first sale to a customer converting from propane directly to lithium-ion electric power, was developed by Grand Rapids, Michigan-based Cisco Inc. Cisco is a source for all loading dock, batteries & charger sales, parts, and repair, covering all of Michigan and Northern Indiana, with resident techs in Traverse City, Flint, Brighton and Kalamazoo. Delivery is targeted for late November 2018.
Cisco Inc. commented, “We are impressed by Flux’s product line and their commitment to customer service and success, which made them a logical choice in this situation. Our customer had become aware of the efficiency, environmental and cost benefits of lithium-ion battery power which made it very attractive for them to convert from propane and become an early adopter of lithium-ion electric power. As awareness builds for the performance benefits of Flux’s LiFT Pack solutions, we fully expect to see growing interest and demand.”
