APPLYING ELECTRIFIED POWER WITH VANGUARD
Many OEMs are on the way to transition their portfolio towards electrified products. By choosing one of the Vanguard Lithium-Ion batteries, you can be sure to integrate a complete power solution in your products.
As a power agnostic specialist Vanguard guarantees that our battery solutions work best to fit your individual needs. The OEM equipment can either be matched to our Lithium-Ion Battery packs in our Power Application Center in Germany or with the help of our vast network of electrification technology partners.
HOW VANGUARD AND THE TECHNOLOGY PARTNERS HELP OEMs DEVELOP THE FINAL PRODUCT
BATTERY TECHNOLOGY PARTNERS
Who are our partners and what is their role? Where are they located?
Our partners are specialized companies that provide significant engineering expertise to the small to medium-sized OEMs they work with by designing systems or subsystems. Through the technology partners, OEMs have a place to not only source components but also access to engineering expertise they wouldn’t have in house. With this engineering support, the OEMs can integrate different types of technology systems that may have otherwise been out of reach. Vanguard currently has 11 partners in 8 countries.
What problems are Vanguard and the partners working to solve?
Most small and medium OEMs don't have an in-house engineering team that can help design and integrate electrification solutions. With the Battery Technology Partners, we’re broadening the reach of options to as many OEMs as possible. Whether it’s helping to design a piece of electric equipment or repowering an existing machine to take battery power, the technology partners can be that on-site expert. They take their expertise and geographic proximity and combine it with our battery technology to create a solution that is above-and-beyond what either of us would have been able to accomplish alone.
Are you an OEM that looks for support in the electrification process? Get in touch with Vanguard and we’ll connect you to our amazing network of partners.

BECOME A VANGUARD TECHNOLOGY PARTNER
What does Vanguard look for when signing on a new technology partner?
Vanguard views their partners as an extension of the company and vice versa. We want to represent each other well. So, first of all, we make sure we share the same values.
We're also very clear on what the expectations are from an engineering perspective and the level of support we expect them to bring to the OEMs they serve. After extensive training, the Vanguard partners companies are able to serve as the application engineering department for the OEMs they work with.
What benefits exist for the Battery Technology Partners?
Our intention is to work hand in hand with the partner on an ongoing basis. The Vanguard application engineers and the partners engineering teams are actively communicating throughout projects to ensure the Lithium-Ion technology is being implemented smoothly. Vanguard makes sure our partners are successful and that they fully understand the battery product they are presenting to their stakeholders. We want them to know the product inside and out so that they’re able to sell the value to their customers but also to ensure, from a technical perspective, the batteries are integrated properly into a machine to maximize performance.
