Greenville, N.C. (April 10, 2019) - When evaluating opportunities to improve efficiencies, many operations often overlook the power source of their materials handling equipment. With the introduction of new advanced technologies and improvements on existing power sources, there are compelling reasons to look again at better matching a power source to an application.
Hyster Company is offering a dedicated Power Match team to help customers determine the best power solution based on their application and specific needs. The Power Match team can help navigate the complexities of today’s power needs and implement a range of power sources from a variety of brands. Selecting the best power source involves researching and calculating several variables, including shifts, utility prices, space requirements and operator discipline.
“It was only a few years ago that were really starting to explore alternative power solutions,” said Steven LaFevers, vice president for motive power and telematics at Hyster Company. “Today the accelerated adoption and widespread availability of power sources like lithium-ion batteries and hydrogen fuel cells are transforming how operations think about their materials handling equipment and overall cost of operations.”
Hyster Company offers the broadest range of power options across its full line of lift trucks, including internal combustion engine, lead acid battery, lithium-Ion battery and hydrogen fuel cell.
Interested customers can start a free evaluation of their power source needs by scheduling a consultation with their local Hyster® dealer or by emailing PowerMatch@hyster.com
