April 23, 2021: Stryten Manufacturing, the company formed from the ashes of Exide Technologies’ former North American lead battery business, has signed an exclusive deal with distribution company Canadian Energy to extend the new company’s reach into Canada, Stryten announced on April 19.
Canadian Energy will distribute Stryten’s automotive batteries from its 20 warehouses and more than 10,000 dealers across Canada, while Stryten’s industrial power arm, GNB, will look after motive power and stationary power customers, the company said.
In another statement on April 8, Stryten said GNB had released a new set of Cloud services that will allow battery owners to monitor all of their power assets online.
Because GNB is the motive power and network power market supplier, its batteries require different software to monitor them than the auto batteries that Stryten controls.
As such, its GNB Cloud now enables customers to keep an eye on their batteries, chargers and gateways online, no matter how many assets they have.
Stryten Manufacturing is based in Alpharetta, Georgia. The company was formed after Exide Technologies sold its North American business, leaving the EMEA side as a standalone company.
Atlas Holdings bought the North American business and renamed it Stryten Manufacturing in August 2020. The recycling part of the business became Element Resources.
