Elisabetta Orlandi, Business Development Manager, shares with Ground Handling International why OEMs in the GSE sector are turning to Flash Battery to electrify their fleets
More often than not, the best companies in the world start from the humblest of beginnings and this could not be truer for Italy’s best-selling lithium battery manufacturer, Flash Battery.
Starting from a garage in the picturesque town of Campegine in 2012, the brainchild of Marco Righi, now Founder and CEO, and Alan Pastorelli, Co-Founder and CTO, it has since grown into a multi-million euro turnover company, manufacturing lithium iron phosphate (LFP) batteries for industrial machines and electric vehicles.
In 2018, Flash Battery turned its attention to the GSE sector and is now widely respected, working with major OEMs on how to electrify their fleets. Since 2019 it has seen 40% growth in this segment and looks set to achieve over 30% growth this year.
“We are growing fast; we want to become an active promoter of the current energy transition,” said Elisabetta Orlandi, Business Development Manager at Flash Battery.
The company’s unique customised LFP battery solutions are far reaching with many OEMs snapping them up for applications as diverse as GPUs, tow tractors, pushback, beltloaders, ambulifts, and passenger stairs and PRM units to name a few.
