We are proud to announce that Advanced Powering Services (APSI) has completed its first strategic acquisition of Voltronix ™ – a top quality, ethical, lithium ion battery provider. As part of the merger, APSI has hired both Brennan Patrick Beach (Founder of Voltronix) as APSI Corporate Development Officer and Alfonso Alvizar as a Senior Product Development Engineer. Both Brennan and Alfonso bring over 11 years of experience with Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) battery technology and implementation.
Voltronix’s 13 year history has excelled through conversions of lead batteries to lithium iron phosphate for NEVs (Neighborhood Electric Vehicle), ATVs (All Terrain Vehicle) and for the Polaris Ranger EV. These batteries are not just replacements, but entire performance upgrades which involve reprogramming the motor controller, charger and optimizing the standard 48vdc pack with a high performance battery management system. Each upgrade on average reduces battery weight one third; from over 800lbs to under 270lbs. To date, over 250 of vehicles have been upgraded without fail.
With Voltronix’s expertise, experience and proven history of the LiFePO4 technology we are excited to continue developing product for the EV market and begin to apply it to APSI’s core applications; energy storage, cable and telecom applications, as well as OEM for various industries.
Voltronix will remain as brand within Advanced Powering Services, but not as a separate entity.
