Altec Receives NTEA Work Truck Show 2016 Green Award

BIRMINGHAM, AL--(Marketwired - April 06, 2016) - Altec, Inc. announced today that it has received the NTEA Work Truck Show® 2016 "Green Award". Chosen by a panel of trade media editors and truck fleet managers, the Green Award honors the product that best improves work truck fuel utilization and efficiency. Altec was recognized for its JEMS® 4 Series (Jobsite Energy Management System).

"Altec is truly honored to have received the 2016 Work Truck Show Green Award," said Lee Styslinger III, Altec Chairman and CEO. "The utility industry has recognized the need to identify and implement sustainability initiatives and practices. It makes good business sense. Altec remains committed to developing products and solutions that help customers meet their sustainability targets, reduce their carbon footprint and work more efficiently."

The JEMS 4 Series, a hybrid electric system for utility work trucks, provides significant reductions in carbon footprint, enhances engine life and reduces engine maintenance by automatically eliminating unneeded idle time. The integrated plug-in system features lithium-ion energy, engine-off cab heating and cooling and an electrified PTO (ePTO) for hydraulic power. The ePTO is an on-demand system which conserves energy by operating only with the activation of the upper or lower controller interlock or by engaging the hydraulic tool circuit. It is equipped with Altec's advanced Idle Mitigation System, which eliminates unnecessary idle time whenever the vehicle is parked and automatically transitions from engine power to JEMS power.
