Plug Power Supplies Fuel Cells for Calif. Food Distributor


Plug Power Inc. says food manufacturer and distributor Golden State Foods has deployed GenDrive hydrogen fuel cells in the material-handling fleet at its new distribution center in Illinois.

Plug Power will supply GenDrive fuel cells to power 39 material-handling vehicles: 11 Class 2 stand-up reach lift trucks and 28 Class 3 rider pallet trucks. Plug Power will also provide Golden State Foods with GenCare on-site maintenance and service.

California-based Golden State Foods is a distributor for companies such as Starbucks, Chick-fil-A, Arby's and Taco Bell.

Plug Power says its GenDrive fuel cells replace lead-acid batteries and are designed to fit into all major original equipment manufacturers' material-handling vehicles.
