Forklift battery chargers | ProMat 2015 Day 3 observations

Intella launched a new line of forklift battery chargers at ProMat 2015 in Chicago.  Our long time European charger partner, A.T.I.B Elettronica showed off their newly designed models for the North American market.  We’re very excited to be entering the charger business.

Our parent company, VanGent Forklift Parts, has been doing business with ATIB for nearly 10 years with great results.  The chargers ATIB sells in Europe are designed for European voltages and standards–a completely new series was introduced for the North American market.  If you’re interested in learning more about chargers please call us at 616-796-1288 or explore more here.


On Wednesday, day 3, traffic starts slowing and the energy takes a dip.  For future record, Monday and Tuesday are definitely the best days to take in ProMat from an attendee perspective.  Some might point out that it’s easier to navigate a show when it’s less busy.  Me–I’d prefer to attend when everyone is at peak performance, peak energy, peak excitement.  Let’s face it, 4 days of working a show does get tiring!

Below are some photos of things I found interesting to look at during the ProMat show.  Let’s start with what is perhaps the most interesting company name.

What better way to demonstrate your product’s lifting capability by lifting another one.  Literally!

Finally, on Wednesday night MHI celebrated its 50th anniversary with a cocktail hour and stand up comedy by Frank Caliendo.  Frank’s known for his celebrity impersonation of notables such as Morgan Freeman, Bill Clinton, Charles Barkley and many others.  He had a great show.

And that’s all for the 3rd day ProMat 2015 wrap up!
