Flux Power’s lithium-ion LiFT Pack battery technology provides an enormous opportunity to optimize food and beverage industry supply chains by enhancing productivity, providing faster charging, longer operating times and eliminating battery maintenance while also reducing fixed costs.

Ron has successfully led the commercial development of new lithium battery technology that replaces lead-acid batteries and brings significant performance, cost and environmental benefits to the food supply chain and other markets.
