EnerSys, provider of stored energy solutions for industrial applications, and Toyota Material Handling, U.S.A. (TMHU), manufacturer of material handling and industrial lift equipment, announced that EnerSys battery and charger solutions for material handling applications were available in the STARLIFT Parts Program as of November 1, 2018.

The STARLIFT Parts Program serves as a one-stop-shop of high-quality parts for all makes of forklifts, sweepers, scrubbers, personnel carriers, aerial work platforms, tow tractors and other material handling equipment. Available at Toyota lift truck dealerships throughout North America, STARLIFT’s high-quality, non-Toyota Genuine parts are sourced from the nation’s leading industrial equipment parts suppliers and consistently meet or exceed industry standards.

“At EnerSys, we’ve been supporting TMHU and the TMHU dealer network with products that exceed industry standards for many years, so our battery and chargers are a perfect fit for the STARLIFT Parts Program,” said Chad Uplinger, Vice President Motive Power Americas, EnerSys. “Along with providing TMHU end-users easy access to our products, our participation in the STARLIFT program represents a key first step toward the development of more collaborative power solutions with TMHU.”

“TMHU and EnerSys share several core values and attributes, including premium products, a reputation for quality and the industry’s best coverage,” said Bret Bruin, Director of Aftermarket Operations, Toyota Material Handling, U.S.A., Inc. “Today, the addition of EnerSys aligns with TMHU’s vision and goals to provide the Dealer network with a complete product offering of quality STARLIFT products. Moving forward, we hope to work with EnerSys even more closely on integrated battery and charger technologies.”

To help support its product launch for the STARLIFT program, EnerSys recently attended TMHU’s National Parts, Service, and CSS Manager’s meeting in Orlando, Florida where the company showcased their product to approximately 300 attendees at the STARLIFT Vendor show and lead a breakout session to train and educate on products and available sales tools.
