Vanguard is excited to announce it signed Kraft Fluid Systems, Inc. as its first full-line Vanguard Commercial Lithium-Ion Battery Pack distributor in North America. Kraft will sell and service the entire line of fully integrated commercial batteries to the off-highway vehicle market.

“We are very excited to become the first Vanguard Commercial Battery integrated distributor,” said Scott Durand, vice president sales and marketing for Kraft Fluid Systems. “We believe that electric drives and their components are the future for off-highway commercial vehicles. Much of our OEM customer base has either launched an electric drive vehicle or has plans to. We are positioned nicely to help them design, manufacture, and fulfill on electric drive systems and components for their new vehicles.”

Vanguard’s innovative batteries and proprietary charging system offer a robust solution for electric drive vehicles that operate in harsh conditions. The rugged modular polymer case system design with aluminum roll cage provides drop-tested proven performance and allows users to parallel the packs to increase power capacity.

“Kraft Fluid Systems is the ideal partner for Vanguard to penetrate the industrial market and service manufacturers in North America. Kraft’s commitment to electric driven vehicles and its extensive knowledge and expertise of OEM manufacturers that have traditionally relied on hydraulics and gas engines is a valuable advantage in light of the current electrification trend,” said Christine Davison, senior marketing manager, commercial power, Briggs & Stratton. “Our battery systems offer reduced maintenance downtime, lower noise levels, fast recharging, increased productivity and reliable power in a robust package.”

Vanguard manufactures its innovative batteries in Tucker, GA, and currently offers a 5kWh – 48 volt battery
