An EnerSys Express Fast Charge Port
EnerSys has delivered its 15,000th Express fast charge port.

The company claims the milestone demonstrates the shift in power preferences among materials handling fleets throughout North America.

The Express fast charge system, launched in 2005, allows operators to recharge batteries while on break.

Express was the first fast charge brand to include batteries specifically engineered for fast charging, as well as data management devices.

"Ten years ago, fast charging was a new technology. Today, it’s the preferred choice of manufacturers, distributors and warehouses that run multi-shift, high demand operations," says Bill Moriarty, vice president, sales and service, EnerSys. "When we look at industry trends, electric power is leading the way in forklift power systems. And EnerSys is the technology leader in this revolutionary change in propulsion power."

The 15,000th Express fast charge port was delivered to Magna International, a leading global automotive supplier. It was installed in its powertrain manufacturing facility in Sterling Heights, Michigan.

"Magna decided to use fast charging after we performed a precise analysis of their workflow and operational requirements," says Todd Eveland, sales engineer, EnerSys. "We modeled their operation in our ZBC Designer software. It showed that they could run their operation without changing batteries and at lower costs than with their existing liquid propane forklifts."

EnerSys, a leader in stored energy solutions for industrial applications, manufactures and distributes reserve power and motive power batteries, battery chargers, power equipment, battery accessories and outdoor equipment enclosure solutions to customers worldwide.
