Queensland-based technology company Megapulse has used the AUSA ‘18 expo in Washington to announce it is expanding its operations to the US with the opening of anoperation office in North Carolina over the weekend.
Ross Naddei, and daughter Natasha, of Megapulse Australia joined representatives of Chowan County, the NC EAST Alliance and Sound Bank to announce their decision to locate the company’s North American operations in a business incubator on the second floor of the bank in downtown Edenton, NC.
Megapulse owns multiple patents on clean-tech products that restore the efficiency and reliability of lead-acid batteries. The product extends the service life of batteries and maximises electrical system voltage, thereby reducing down time and failure events.
The technology can be used across a variety of environments where batteries are used, vehicles vessels and equipment place high demands on batteries, causing them to degrade faster. VEES and HD648 ensure you have reliable and efficient power for your on-board batteries and electrical systems on all applications on land and on the sea, by keeping batteries in 'like new' condition throughout their service life.
"With the assistance of the NC EAST team and their allies, Megapulse saved over 12 months on its start-up in the United States," stated Naddei.
Megapulse USA has partnered up with a local company in Greenville, NC, which will handle warehousing and distribution.
"Initially we contemplated going to metropolitan areas, but that would have been a mistake, eastern North Carolina is an ideal location for our US operations," Naddei said.
Megapulse was founded in 1995 and launched its first VEES in 1997. Since then, Megapulse has continued to improve VEES and now the new HD648 to provide benefits to customers large and small. Megapulse technology have been tested by CSIRO, Unitech Energy, Volvo, Scania, MAN, Mercedes, Nobina, Solaris, ThermoKing, Bavaria, Bayliss and many more OEM manufacturers and fleet operators.
