Service Shops and Warehouses

Equipment like welders and forklifts play an important role in many businesses. Using new, energy-efficient welders can reduce energy costs and cleanup time, which saves you money on labor. A high-efficiency forklift battery charger can get your equipment working faster and eliminates the need for the operator to manually set the voltage and amperage.

If your business is located in an industrial facility, visit the battery charger page or the welding equipment page to view available incentives.
