Battery specialist delivers cost saving programme

IBCS the UK’s leading independent specialist battery and charger company has been awarded preferred supplier status by Red Diamond Distribution (RDD), the UK distributors of Mitsubishi forklift trucks.

As a result of this new agreement dealers in the Red Diamond network will benefit from a single nationwide source for batteries, chargers, accessories, installation, maintenance and repair.

Announcing the new initiative, Mike Jones, managing director of Red Diamond Distribution said ‘As our preferred supplier IBCS has developed a bespoke battery and charger maintenance programme that minimises wear and reduces service costs.  This is important because it increases the speed of maintenance and repairs and further enhances our reputation for providing the industry’s most responsive service and parts support.

‘Importantly, because IBCS is independent, our dealers will have access to the very best products rather than being limited to the offering from a single manufacturer.’

The battery range provided by IBCS covers both DIN and BS cells. Technologies include, standard lead acid, low maintenance and GEL format batteries, with up to full 5 year warranty agreements. In addition to this RDD dealers will be offered a choice of high quality, cutting edge Fronius, Axima and Powergen chargers.

Jonathan Jones managing director of IBCS added, ‘We are delighted to be have been awarded preferred supplier status by Red Diamond Distribution.  As a leader in the field with over 30 years’ experience we genuinely understand the demands facing a dynamic dealer network and our highly skilled team of engineers and back-up staff are experts in delivering not only high quality products and maintenance but also a wealth of technical advice and field support’.

‘One of our greatest strengths is creating solutions that save the customer time and money.  As part of this, IBCS is able to provide reports – including photographs of potential issues – in real time so dealers can make informed decisions on scheduling work and keeping their fleets of Mitsubishi forklifts running with optimum efficiently.’
