Xerotech, a supplier of configurable battery systems, and IMK, an engineering firm that focuses on complete vehicle design, engineering and prototype builds, have announced that they will enter into a strategic partnership to help original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) electrify their fleets.
“The collaboration with Xerotech gives us the opportunity to offer our expertise and capabilities in prototype development and manufacturing to a wider range of OEM’s willing to electrify their fleets,” said Frank Herrmann, Managing Director at IMK.
This new partnership leverages the respective strengths of Xerotech and IMK to create a compelling offering to OEMS who are facing mounting pressure to reduce emissions and adopt electric vehicles.
Xerotech’s Hibernium® platform batteries complement IMK’s vehicle design, engineering and prototyping expertise, and enables the new wave of low-volume electrification.
The strategic agreement is the next step in the relationship between both companies, with joint projects for construction and mining OEMs already underway.
“Xerotech’ Hibernium platform removes the electrification barrier of system component availability, but it is partners like IMK Engineering that are essential for design and development of new generation machinery. We are proud to work with Herrmann’s team and deliver the best-in-class solutions to the end customers,” added Thomas Tomaszewski, VP of Business Development at Xerotech.
