Material handline is an often-overlooked path to triple bottom line savings. See how we worked with a food industry client to transform their forklift power system and win a sustainability award.
If you run 10 or more multi-shift forklifts, your power system is almost 50% of the cost of the forklift over its lifetime. That means there's a lot of opportunity to save big and increase uptime.
If your facility runs more than one shift, Material Handling is one of your top three to five costs – and it’s ripe for potential savings. In fact, the busier your facility, the more potential to improve your bottom line.
We’ve all heard the horror stories of what can happen when the power goes down—sometimes, for days or even weeks. In the best-case scenario, you lose money, time, and trust. In the worst-case scenario, your company never truly recovers.
If you’re responsible for your company’s supply chain, you know the rules of the game keep changing. How can you ensure that you keep your competitive advantage, so you win in the last mile?
Thinking about adopting lithium-ion, TPPL, or Hydrogen Fuel Cells? It may be right for you. Or it may be an expensive investment that doesn’t move you forward.
A battery is often 30% of a forklift's cost, so it's not an insignificant cost. Make sure you maintain it properly to get the full lifespan (typically 5 years) out of your batteries!

When it comes to your forklift maintenance and management, what if you could reduce your total cost of ownership by an average of 18% while also increasing your fleet uptime?
Forklifts are a top expense for most high-velocity manufacturing and distribution companies, and the power that runs them equates to almost half of the cost. Yet, this area is traditionally overlooked when it comes to savings.
The difference between operational forklift power and optimized forklift power is dependent upon gathering and then understanding how to use the right data. Interested in making your company more successful?
In a sea of endless technology options among TPPL, Lithium, Lead-acid and Hydrogen Fuel Cells — what's the best route to take as a distribution, maintenance or facility manager?
Six years ago, a global appliance manufacturer was interested in converting from LP (propane) to electric forklifts in their main warehouse.

Whether your business is big or small, your supply chain is key to your company’s success. But forklift power is one of the most widely disregarded components of your company's operations and often handled with a highly reactive system.
A food manufacturer and distributor was experiencing a host of challenges reliably maintaining power to their lift truck fleet within their cold storage distribution facility.
In 2014, the massive installation was executed with no disruption to the plant’s ongoing operations, and the shift to a lower cost of ownership approach commenced.
After two years of opportunity charging on half the system, Customer J was so pleased with Concentric’s approach, that it re-opened the prior contract on the first 20 trucks and converted those into a new opportunity/fast charging contract.
After a positive five-year relationship, the cold storage customer renewed its second multi-year contract with Concentric. The account also engaged Concentric to manage the power needs of 320 more lift trucks at four sister plants
Concentric proposed a 35% increase in ROI and guaranteed uptime through its GuaranteedPOWER® program. Eight years later, Concentric continues to track the health of the company’s batteries and chargers through proprietary remote monitoring systems.
Enrolling in GuaranteedPOWER®, the company improved productivity and saved money. Now powering nearly 400 of the company’s trucks, Concentric is proud to be the company’s power partner.
Almost four years later, the account has had zero battery failures. Personnel that once had to constantly monitor and maintain the batteries has been able to shift their focus to overall system continuity.
See how a monthly schedule of preventative maintenance and proactive inspections keep the mission critical infrastructure systems sharp and reliable, establishing fail-safe reliability.
Learn how Concentric advised this customer to manage its own maintenance to increase the lifespan of their equipment to more than five years.
Like many material handlers, a manufacturer of household appliances relied on LP lift trucks to power its operations at the local plant level.
