We Bring Order.

“Innovation has driven Martin-Brower’s operations for nearly 75 years and today it’s fueling our commitment to energy conservation,” said Steve Domokos, Vice President of Martin-Brower’s US Operations.

Today, Martin-Brower and Oorja Protonics jointly announced the order of the OorjaPac Model III fuel cell for use at the Martin-Brower Stockton, California food distribution facility.

The OorjaPac Model III will operate as an on-board battery charger for Martin-Brower's Class 3 vehicles and it is anticipated that the OorjaPac Model III will eliminate demand for approximately 338 million watts per hour of electricity from the grid, while also reducing Martin-Brower's CO2 emissions by over 1 million pounds each year. Additionally, significant operational efficiencies will be realized as the OorjaPac eliminates battery swapping and electrical demand for charging.

"Innovation has driven Martin-Brower's operations for nearly 75 years and today it's fueling our commitment to energy conservation," said Steve Domokos, Vice President of Martin-Brower's US Operations. "Embracing fuel cells is a natural progression of our plan to green the supply chain for our customers and one that we expect will payback on its investment in less than 11 months"

" Martin-Brower has a strong history of embracing new technologies to improve its operations. We are excited to be working with Martin-Brower on their green initiative and providing them with a solution that increases productivity while consequently realizing a strong return on their investment." said Oorja's founder and CEO Sanjiv Malhotra.

Today, Martin-Brower operates in eight countries with 4,000 customer-service dedicated employees working from 30 distribution centers delivering over 226 million cases of beef, paper, French fry's and operating supplies to more than 9,600 restaurants each year.
