Born out of a garage in 2012 from an idea of Marco Righi (CEO) and Alan Pastorelli (CTO), Flash Battery is today a leading company in the field of lithium batteries for industrial machines and electric vehicles
After closing 2021 with a turnover of 17.3 million, up 25% on the previous year, the company based in Sant’Ilario d’Enza (Italy) celebrates its tenth anniversary and continues its international rise, thanks to a made in Italy technology, that has turned innovation and R&D into its greatest strengths.
Marco Righi and Alan Pastorelli took a gamble on lithium in 2012, by overcoming the electronics problems that lithium cells had at the time. They developed a unique BMS system, the patented Flash Balancing System, which acts both in active and passive on cell balancing system, thus allowing ultra-fast charging and extremely long battery life cycles. Another masterpiece of Flash Battery technology is its remote control software, the Flash Data Center, which monitors battery life parameters 24/7 and sends the data to a cloud that analyses it in real time through AI algorithms, performing self-diagnostic and predictive maintenance.
So far, Flash Battery has produced over 500 different models of fully customised batteries, which precisely respect the space and dimensions required by the vehicle and offer capacities and voltages specifically designed for the working needs of the most diverse industrial applications, from construction to logistics, agriculture, material handling, aerial work platforms, airport vehicles and many other industries that are gradually embracing electrification.
We talk about it in this interview with CEO and founder Marco Righi.
