Trojan Battery Renews ALABC Membership to Take Part in Battery Research
Trojan Battery Co., Santa Fe Springs, Calif., has renewed its membership with the Advanced Lead Acid Battery Consortium (ALABC), Research Triangle Park, N.C., in an effort to actively participate in the consortium’s research program and assist in the continued development of advanced lead-acid and lead carbon batteries for current and emerging markets.
“This is a crucial time for the lead-acid battery industry and Trojan is excited to be a part of the ALABC program once again,” said Gordon Beckley, Trojan’s senior vice president of engineering & quality. “We feel there is much that can be accomplished through pre-competitive research efforts, and Trojan is confident the results will be an enormous benefit to the entire battery industry.”
Trojan is one of the original pioneers of deep-cycle battery technology, and its commitment to quality and innovation over the past century helped the company become a dominant presence in the deep-cycle market for a wide variety of applications. In addition, Trojan’s state-of-the-art research and development centers are considered among the world’s leading design and test facilities for deep-cycle batteries. Collaboration with ALABC’s vast international resources played a key role in Trojan’s decision to renew its membership with the consortium.
“We are looking forward to resuming our research relationship with Trojan to continue advancing the capabilities of lead-acid batteries,” said ALABC President Pat Moseley. “To have them rejoin our membership at this time says a great deal about our industry’s desire to work together toward ensuring lead-acid’s market prosperity as the electrochemical power source of choice in a variety of power applications.”
