LOS ANGELES, CALIF. (5/4/2021) – BYD Material Handling has entered into a dealership agreement with PA Industrial Equipment Inc. expanding its presence into the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania market.
Established in 1977 by Roy Bramm Jr., Pa Industrial Equipment provides material handling equipment sales, service, and rentals to all of southeastern Pennsylvania. Bramm, along with the next generation of his family, continue to oversee the daily operations and to guarantee quality service.
The company has sales and service locations in Boyertown and New Holland Pennsylvania. “Having a green product utilizing cutting edge Lithium-ion technology rounds out our excellent product mix,” said Joseph Marino, PA Industrial Equipment sales manager. “Being able to offer these units at a competitive price point from a manufacturer committed to quality products and customer service positions PA Industrial very well for future growth.” “As a family-owned business with decades of industry experience and a strong focus on customer service, PA Industrial is an ideal partner for BYD,” said Terry Rains, Director of BYD North America’s Forklift Division. “This partnership will bring BYD’s clean, innovative technology to customers in Pennsylvania.”
BYD’s material handling equipment simplifies operations by delivering a single-battery multi- shift solution. Spare batteries, cooling down batteries, and battery swapping are a thing of the past. BYD forklifts charge to full in under 90 minutes and run for up to 15-plus hours. When using opportunity charging, on breaks and downtime, your operation can truly run for 24 hours without thinking about batteries.
Unlike Lead-Acid batteries, and some “drop-in” lithium-ion batteries, BYD’s Iron Phosphate batteries feature high energy density while remaining environmentally friendly. There is no need for special ventilation requirements, watering infrastructure, or corrosion control. As a first in the industry, BYD also offers a 110v / 15-amp plug-in charger capable of recharging its Iron Phosphate batteries. Because the Iron Phosphate battery handles opportunity charging easily, you can even plug it in like you would your cell phone.
