Vanguard brings battery system solution to Scott Industrial

Commercial Li-ion battery pack technology to expand fluid power distributor’s electrification offerings.

Briggs & Stratton announced a partnership with Scott Industrial Systems, a full line fluid power distributor, offering expertise in hydraulics, pneumatics and electronic control systems. Scott will utilize the Vanguard commercial lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery pack to offer a complete engineered e-drive solution.

With an emphasis on solving complicated fluid power problems with custom-engineered solutions, Scott assists customers to migrate from conventional fuel to electric-powered machines. Electric power eliminates a customer’s need to manage and store fuel on-site as well as simplifies required monthly maintenance, ultimately leading to a safer work environment. The technology also helps with sustainability efforts by eliminating engine exhaust.

“By partnering with Vanguard to offer the commercial Li-ion battery pack, it allows Scott as a fluid power distributor to maximize its software and controls solution. It also expands Scott’s technology offerings with a new capability in electric power,” says Kevin Smith, vice president of sales at Scott Industrial. “With electric power, we can now provide a whole system solution to help our customers meet sustainability goals by migrating conventional fuel to electric.”

“We’re proud to support companies like Scott Industrial Systems in supplying quality products and solutions for OEMs,” says Chris Davison, Briggs & Stratton senior marketing manager, commercial power. “We look forward to collaborating with Scott and being a resource for them as they utilize our battery lineup to create new, customized solutions for OEMs of mobile and stationary equipment.”

The Vanguard commercial Li-ion battery pack is the only fully integrated, complete battery solution on the market. The patent-pending customized Vanguard Li-ion battery pack, battery management system and charger work seamlessly together to deliver efficient power and performance.
