Trojan Battery Co., LLC, a leading manufacturer of deep-cycle batteries, has joined the SmartEquip Network.

Starting in May, Trojan Battery's products will be available for purchase by equipment companies via SmartEquip, an online fleet-support network that connects fleet owners to manufacturers and their dealers with real-time access to vital parts and service information. SmartEquip currently has some 40,000 users.

“Trojan’s product procurement program will be greatly enhanced by joining the SmartEquip Network, which services the nation’s top rental fleet customers,” said Holly Ernest, senior director of North American aftermarket sales for Trojan Battery.  “With the SmartEquip Network currently supporting more than 160 OEM brands via over 4,000 locations across North America and Europe, rental fleet customers can easily access Trojan’s leading edge battery technologies to meet the requirements of their specific types of equipment,” said Ernest.

Joining the SmartEquip Network streamlines Trojan's order fulfillment for  rental fleet owners. Trojan will offer its full line of advanced deep-cycle battery technologies, including deep-cycle flooded, AGM, and gel batteries, as well as Trojan's HydroLink single-point watering system which can water a set of flooded batteries in less than 30 seconds.

“The addition of the Trojan brand enhances battery product offering to construction equipment rental fleets by maximizing performance and reducing downtime while on the job site,” said Mike Kendall, SmartEquip’s vice president of OEM strategic accounts.
