Exide Technologies has signed a new three-year exclusive supply agreement with Volvo Trucks North America (VTNA) which expands its existing aftermarket product offerings to include new Volvo branded batteries for Volvo Truck dealers.
The agreement makes Exide the exclusive supplier of the Mack Bulldog and Volvo branded batteries. Exide will also supply its proprietary brands to the VTNA network of Mack and Volvo dealers in North America.
"I was extremely pleased with willingness of Exide to work with us and be creative in their ideas," said Jay Fuggiti, vp of purchasing for Volvo Parts North America. "The professionalism of the parties involved was admirable and has resulted in an agreement which will prove beneficial to both of our organizations."
Through Mack Trucks, which was acquired by Volvo in 2000, Volvo and Exide have had a working relationship since the 1970s.
