Partnership With WPG Americas Extends Ioxus Reach In North America

Today, we announced our latest distribution partnership, an alliance with WPG Americas, which serves industries such as semiconductors and passive, electro-mechanical and display products. As we build our distributor networks around the world, this agreement with WPG stands out as particularly important. We’ve significantly broadened our potential customer base in the United States, Canada and Mexico, and we look forward to serving these markets more fully.

Along with our partners Mouser Electronics, Atlantic Components and Ineltek USA, WPG Americas serves companies in our region who are most in need of higher capacity ultracapacitors. These alternative energy, automotive, LED lighting and other manufacturers want energy storage options with higher cycle life, wider temperature range tolerance and lower total cost of ownership. This is what we deliver, with the help of WPG Americas and others in the Ioxus Distributor Network.

The expansion of our network signals the growing global demand for ultracaps. Tapping into that demand requires partnerships with established distributors capable of acting as an extension of the Ioxus sales and engineering staff. WPG Americas certainly fits that description, and we look forward to working with its team to design and implement cost-effective, green energy storage solutions for our joint customers.

  • uSTART® Lead-Free Replacement for Truck Batteries

    ONEONTA, N.Y.Jan. 9, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Ioxus uSTART® has received two fleet industry awards for sustainability by eliminating lead-acid batteries with its ultracapacitor-based, drop-in battery replacement.

    "With uSTART, fleets not only realize the benefits of improved starting reliability, there are equally important and real sustainability improvements from lead waste reduction," said Chad Hall, executive vice president and co-founder of Ioxus. "By replacing one of the batteries on a vehicle with a uSTART module, up to 15 fewer batteries are needed over the lifetime of the vehicle. This translates into 1,000 pounds of lead that will never need to be disposed of or allowed to affect groundwater."

    EU legislation on batteries is embodied in the European Battery Directive.  Its objective is to contribute to the preservation and improvement of environmental quality by minimizing the negative impact of batteries and battery waste.  As these preservation efforts expand, sustainable technologies develop to manage and mitigate these risks.

    Replacing a lead-acid battery with uSTART in a typical commercial vehicle creates measurable environmental benefits:
