Our battery story.
The battery challenge.
The battery challenge. It began in 2018 when Vanguard was looking for an electrification partner who had a clear understanding of the commercial market’s needs — and had the ability to manufacture a battery solution that could power a broad range of applications. The battery solution would require a unique design to enable easy integration and would need to facilitate scalability based on specific power requirements. Our vision was to create a battery solution like no other — one that could endure extreme operating conditions, be dust and water resistant, withstand being pressure washed, and be easily serviceable. To achieve this goal would take a partner who could provide all of this without requiring significant volume commitments from the OEM and deliver these smaller quantities with short lead times.
The battery solution.
It soon became clear that no other partner could meet our high standards, and we enthusiastically committed to designing and manufacturing our own Vanguard integrated lithium-ion battery systems in house. Owning and controlling the battery production while providing our extensive power application engineering expertise to OEMs has enabled Vanguard to establish itself as a battery power solution provider of choice. In addition, our ability to offer integrative battery solutions, scalability and supply has ensured seamless integration of Vanguard batteries into a range of applications for small, medium, and large OEMs. Vanguard provides a compliant electrified power solution package tailored to meet a broad range of needs. We offer OEMs a complete commercial battery solution together with application engineering support and a global after sales service and support network.

Vanguard batteries are built to withstand the harshest work environments. Hot, cold, wet, or dry — Vanguard batteries deliver power. Enclosed in a metal roll-cage, these batteries can withstand the most demanding operating conditions. Thermal cycle testing from -40 °C to 80 °C together with dust and water resistance means the batteries deliver the power wherever and whenever you need it. Designed with IP66 connectors, in addition to the dust and water resistance, the Vanguard battery packs can be cleaned with a pressure washer when returned after a hard day at work.
The industry has learned from earlier design miscues. Vanguard commercial batteries incorporate extra layers of safety to the pack. By designing, manufacturing, quality controlling and integrating the battery management system into the pack, Vanguard provides a battery solution that is longer lasting and more powerful — while providing extra performance and data monitoring benefits.
