NOVI, Mich. — Prestolite Electric announced a partnership with Brighton Cromwell, the largest provider of maintenance kits and kitting services to the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA), in an effort to extend the reach of the Company’s premium IdlePro Extreme® alternators; PowerPro Extreme® 12 and PowerPro Extreme 5 starters; and legacy Leece-Neville Heavy-Duty starters and alternators within military fleets.
Brighton Cromwell will help Prestolite gain exposure and increased response volume to military bids while providing access to a compliant network of logistics and procurement that is required by the U.S. Department of Defense and global military aftermarkets. Prestolite products include high quality, reliable 12V and 24V alternator and starter motors for a wide-range of applications and uses on vehicles in North America, Europe and around the world.
“To help keep our military safe, reliable power is a must,” says Jonathan Smith, assistant director of sales and marketing, Prestolite. “We’re excited about our new partnership with Brighton Cromwell and the extensive reach their services can bring to our Prestolite alternators and starters. Both organizations have a strong reputation for exceptional quality and performance, and we’re looking forward to providing military maintenance professionals with immediate access to these leading rotating electric products.”
Among the products now available to the military are the Leece-Neville IdlePro Extreme 24V 600- and 680-amp high efficiency/high output alternators. These units deliver exceptional output at low engine speeds, in a lighter weight and lower maintenance package. They have the power to meet and maintain vehicle system voltage requirements, which results in better battery life and greater overall vehicle uptime.
Also available to military vehicles of all types are PowerPro Extreme starters, designs ideal for extreme-use heavy equipment. PowerPro Extreme 12V and 24V starters – engineered to provide starting power for 12L to 40L engines – include a host of features to help reduce operating and maintenance costs and increase vehicle uptime, including high-torque, high-power performance, planetary gear reduction, rotatable flanges, soft start relays and more.
