The Raymond Corporation and Brammo, Inc., have announced a strategic technology alliance for developing robust lithium-ion alternative energy solutions. The alliance will focus on highly demanding warehouse applications that utilize electric forklifts. Raymond and Brammo have started testing a variety of configurations and will be releasing more information later this year.
“Raymond has consistently worked toward enabling our customers to be as productive and energy efficient as possible, fueled by our commitment to delivering material handling solutions for today’s — and tomorrow’s — warehouses,” said Michael Field, chief executive officer of Raymond. “This technology alliance unites the expertise of two industry leaders, allowing us to apply advanced electric vehicle technology to superior warehouse solutions.”
“This new strategic technology alliance between Brammo and Raymond is an important milestone in the development of commercial lithium-ion applications. Creating more efficient commercial solutions underscores our commitment to high performance, without sacrificing environmental responsibility,” said Craig Bramscher, CEO of Brammo.
Brammo will be showcasing the Raymond® 8210 walkie pallet jack with a Brammo lithium-ion battery at The Battery Show in Novi, Michigan, Sept. 13 to 15, 2016, Booth 1202.
