Sunlight, Seagull, and Crown Equipment strategic partnership on lithium batteries in the supply chain sector

Systems Sunlight S.A., a member of Olympia Group and a leading technology company in the production of batteries and energy storage systems, is participating in one of the largest strategic partnerships of recent years in Greece, with a critical role in strengthening green infrastructure and investment through the use of lithium batteries.

For the first time, 3 major companies in their sectors – Crown Equipment Corporation, from the US, one of the largest manufacturers of high-quality lifting machinery (forklifts) in the world; Seagull Worldwide AG, an international transit and logistics company; and SUNLIGHT, a leading manufacturer of batteries and energy storage systems – are joining forces for a strategic partnership, resulting in the provision of an integrated lithium battery solution that will cover the energy needs of the new, modern storage and distribution centres of SEAGULL SA in Attica and Thessaloniki.

SUNLIGHT’s range of revolutionary lithium batteries combines the important advantages of lithium technology batteries – including high performance in demanding applications, 17 safety levels, long battery life, and high energy storage capacity, as well as low cost of use – with the innovative application of Industry 4.0 technologies to the industrial use of Internet of Things technologies.

SEAGULL is investing the significant sum of €2.5 million in a seven-year leasing of 60 new high-quality forklifts from the Crown company, which are supplied with state of the art lithium batteries by SUNLIGHT. CROWN machinery’s safety, quality and reliability under the toughest conditions, in combination with the modern and clean energy of SUNLIGHT’s lithium batteries, are a major advantage in increasing productivity and reducing energy costs economically and efficiently for SEAGULL and its customers. This investment is one of a series of actions by SEAGULL that are positively impacting its environmental footprint through conversion to all-green equipment at its warehouses.

The partnership of the three major global players places Greece at the centre of international developments in the transformation of the supply chain sector, highlighting the value of green investment in a field of critical importance during the crisis brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic.
