The turmoil in the forklift battery industry of the last 24 months has left many companies worried that if their forklifts batteries break down, they could be left with a big repair bill and no support.

When choosing a battery supplier there is more than just price to consider; for example, how is your current supplier demonstrating to you their strength and longevity in the market?

Can you afford to not have your battery warranty backed up by a reliable company who will provide support, service and repairs when required? When you are investing significant amounts of your money in batteries that are the backbone of your materials handling equipment, you should be able to rely on your supplier.
