Midwest Produce Distributor Selects Flux Power
Lithium Batteries for Electric Pallet Jack Forklifts
Milwaukee, WI & Vista, CA – June 25, 2015 – Flux Power Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: FLUX), a developer of advanced lithium battery technologies for industrial applications including electric forklifts, today announced that a large Midwest produce distributor has ordered 27 Flux LiFT Pack battery units to power a fleet of their electric pallet jacks. Flux’s 24-volt LiFT Pack batteries deliver improved performance for Class III pallet jacks or “walkies”, small forklifts operated by a user walking alongside.
The introduction and adoption of Flux’s innovative solution was facilitated by Courtney Industrial Battery (CIB), a leading supplier of motive power in the Midwest and stationary power in the U.S., based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. “We are pleased to represent Flux Power and be able to provide this leading edge battery technology to help our customers meet their motive power needs, while saving them money,” said Joe Wohlleber, general manager, CIB.
“The deployment decision followed an initial order in April 2015 at one of the customer’s key facilities. Through piloting our customer was able to confirm the performance, efficiency and cost benefits of Flux’s 135 Ahe LiFT Pack solution versus solutions they have used in the past,” said Gary Hanert, regional sales manager, CIB. “The customer is very pleased that the Flux LiFT Pack enables opportunity charging, resulting in longer run times and higher productivity. It is also important to the customer to be able to deploy a product, such as the Flux LiFT Pack which can last five years or more.”
“We are excited to welcome one of the Midwest’s largest produce distributors to our growing customer base,” said Ron Dutt, Flux Power’s CEO. “We’re proud to have our partner CIB’s support for the LiFT Pack product line and appreciate this customer’s enthusiasm for the improved performance, lower total cost of ownership and reduced environmental impact our solutions deliver for the materials handling industry compared to the alternatives.”
