Jackson Truck & Trailer , a national supplier of trucking supplies and equipment, has partnered with Trojan Battery Co. to offer Trojan’s maintenance-free AGM battery technology for heavy-duty starting applications and electrical system operations.

“By partnering with Jackson Truck & Trailer, one of the nation’s most trusted resources for heavy-duty trucking equipment and services, Trojan expands the availability of our premium AGM 31 deep-cycle and starting battery technologies to an industry which plays a critical role in transporting goods to consumers across the nation,” said Elke Hirschman, vice president of marketing for Trojan Battery. “Trojan prides itself on having an extensive network of distinguished distributors and dealers that provide knowledgeable sales and support services that our customers have come to expect from Trojan. Trojan is confident that the addition of Jackson Truck & Trailer to this distinguished group will be invaluable to supporting Trojan AGM battery products in the trucking industry.”

Jackson will offer Trojan’s TransPower ST1000 AGM 31 battery for starting applications and the OverDrive AGM 31 to operate auxiliary power units (APUs) and heating and air conditioning (HVAC) systems.

The Trojan TransPower ST1000 is a rugged AGM 31 starting battery that delivers 1,000 cold cranking amps (CCAs), a 200-minute reserve capacity, heavy-duty performance and long battery life.

The Trojan OverDrive AGM 31 features a plate construction thicker than that used in a starting and dual purpose battery. The thicker section of active materials makes the plate more robust and more resistant to the stresses encountered during deep discharge cycling. The thicker plate allows the grid to be manufactured with a larger cross-sectional area that can better withstand the corrosion that takes place in every battery, Trojan said.
