EnerSys® (NYSE:ENS), the global leader in stored energy solutions for industrial applications and the manufacturer of ODYSSEY® batteries, recently achieved approved vendor status with JIT Truck Parts. Launched in 2010 and headquartered in Highland Park, Illinois, JIT Truck Parts is a distributor of heavy duty aftermarket parts. With distribution centers throughout the United States, their main locations are in Louisville, Kentucky; Reno, Nevada; and Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.
Manufactured with proprietary Thin Plate Pure Lead (TPPL) technology, the plates used in the construction of ODYSSEY® batteries are made thinner, allowing for more to fit in the battery. Their rugged construction and non-spillable dry cell design protect against high impact shock and mechanical vibration, two common causes of battery failure. Additionally, ODYSSEY® batteries provide deep cycle reserve power and maximum cranking power, with engine cranking pulses up to 2,700 amps for 5 seconds, which is double to triple that of equally sized conventional flooded lead acid batteries.
“The heavy duty commercial fleet market continues to demand high-performance batteries that can withstand the rigors of over-the-road travel. Our partnership with JIT Truck Parts and its distribution centers allows us to provide them with access to our portfolio of premium ODYSSEY® batteries to meet this ever-growing industry demand,” said Tom Rafferty, National Account Manager at EnerSys. “Uniquely engineered to handle the increased use of onboard accessories in today’s high-end vehicles, ODYSSEY® batteries are virtually maintenance-free power solutions that can help provide heavy duty fleet managers with a lower total cost of ownership.”
ODYSSEY® batteries feature a three- to 10-year service life and a two-year storage life at 77°F (25°C). They are vibration and shock resistant, classified as “non-spillable” by the U.S. Department of Transportation and include a limited three-year full replacement warranty.
