As the leading supplier and distributor of industrial lithium ion batteries in South Africa, CHASE Technologies plays a vital role in introducing this technology into the market. The benefits for forklifts in materials-handling environments, such as warehouse operations, range from a reduced charging time to increased energy efficiency. The fact that no changeover is required means no replacements, greater productivity and reduced costs.
With an extensive dealer network, national back-up and service support, CHASE Technologies ensures that lithium ion batteries are readily available. The current focus on alternative energy sources in order to reduce the strain on the national electricity grid makes energy-efficient lithium ion battery technology an ideal option for industries to cut costs and remain at the forefront of technological development.
After an extensive period, spanning almost three years, of research and development into the optimal lithium ion battery technology to implement in the South African market, CHASE Technologies managed successful implementation in 2018. Despite an effective battery system being introduced, we continued looking for improvement through relentless R&D. This constant tweaking continues today, and into the future, in the true spirit of Kaizen.
