BYD Motors Inc., which says it is the world's largest manufacturer of rechargeable batteries for consumer applications, has brought its lithium-ion forklift battery technology to the North America's forklift market. BYD, which is based in China, provides its customers with an entire battery "ecosystem" that includes the lift truck, battery, and charger. According to Sales Director Brian Rippie, the company designs and manufactures all of that equipment, incorporating proprietary iron-phosphate-based technology and designing the forklifts and batteries specifically for each other, achieving the greatest benefit and efficiency.
