We would like to show recognition to Jungheinrich for receiving a major order for more than 1,000 lithium-ion vehicles. The largest order ever awarded for vehicles fitted with lithium-ion batteries anywhere in the world and also the largest vehicle order volume in the company’s history.
Of the 1,000-plus industrial trucks, 700 consists of vertical order pickers designed for narrow-aisles in warehouses.
Lars Brzoska, a member of the Jungheinrich board of management in charge of marketing and sales, say’s the order is “a new milestone for electro-mobility (which) underscores Jungheinrich’s unrivaled mastery of lithium-ion technology”.
Lithium-ion batteries are produced at the Jungheinrich plant in Norderstedt, Germany, which Jungheinrich claims to be the world’s only manufacturer of industrial trucks to produce its own lithium-ion batteries. The batteries are intelligent and can communicate with the vehicle as well as the charging device.
Jungheinrich has experienced an annual 300% increase in sales for lithium-ion batteries over the past three years. With the continued strong global demand for this product, the group is planning to expand its manufacturing capacity in the future.
