Akron, OH (PRWEB) August 26, 2009
Nuvera Fuel Cells and Universal Precision Products, Inc. announced today a 5-year manufacturing agreement between the two companies. Nuvera chose Universal as the manufacturing partner for the integration of the compression and storage components of their PowerTapTM Hydrogen Station following a nationwide search. The unit will provide compressed hydrogen used to fuel forklift trucks equipped with Nuvera's PowerEdge™ hybrid fuel cell systems which replace standard lead acid batteries.
Nuvera's PowerTap Hydrogen Station, along with the Hydrogen Generator and PowerEdge, together form the Total Power Solution, a set of purpose built products for the material handling industry specifically matched to maximize customer productivity and minimize customer life cycle costs.
"We are very pleased to be one of Nuvera's partners," said Jon Munson, President of Universal.
