The future is electric. In fact, California and Oregon recently announced that it will ban the sale of gas-fueled cars by 2035. As gas-powered cars become less popular, so will diesel-powered equipment.
In line with industry trends, Papé Material Handling is stepping in as an industry leader in the path toward electrification. In this edition of the Papé Material Handling blog, let’s take a look at our motive power division resources, and how we can support your fleet in the transition to electric-powered equipment.
Full Motive Power Solutions Provider
As a full Motive Power solutions provider, Papé Material Handling can help you switch your fleet to electric. Some of our division resources include:
#1 Battery Supply
Papé Motive Power carries both lead acid and lithium batteries, providing you with the source of power for your electric-powered equipment.
Lithium-Ion batteries are a great choice for those looking for a sustainable option. They don’t produce harmful emissions and they provide energy savings of up to 15% (learn more about the benefits of lithium batteries on our blog!). Lead acid batteries are also a well-rounded option for those that want to go electric. They only produce fumes during battery charging and not during operations, helping you meet air quality standards as well as sustainability goals.
We carry both Hawker and Crown lead-acid batteries.
When transitioning your fleet to electric, you will want a charging station and system to work with your operations. Papé can provide your business with temporary charging stations when additional equipment is necessary. We offer two different brands of chargers, including:
- Crown chargers. Crown Battery is a leader in energy efficient battery chargers across the entire charge cycle. Crown’s IHF Chargers are ideal for charging both flooded and maintenance free batteries.
- Hawker chargers. From fast charging to plug-and-play flexibility, Hawker chargers can eliminate extra downtime and promote peak efficiency. Hawker also produces real-time battery diagnostics with a compact, wireless tracking device, giving you visibility into your charging needs.
