January 29, 2015 by Jeff Shepard

NorthStar Battery and Eternity Technologies join forces to launch a new tubular 2V OPzV battery range with capacities from 300-3000 Ah, to be sold exclusively by NorthStar for the telecom market. For more than a decade, NorthStar have designed and manufactured high performance AGM batteries in the U.S. for telecom power systems, uninterruptible power supplies and engine start applications in more than 120 countries. Eternity Technologies is a leader in the 2V motive market, with a brand new state-of-the-art facility in the UAE, and a global customer base that includes several worldwide material handling equipment suppliers. With the latest robotic processing technology, and advanced environmental control systems, NorthStar and Eternity deliver the most reliable and consistent products in the industry.

NorthStar CEO Hans Lidén says the modern approach and strong customer focus of both companies will breathe new life into the standby power market. "We're very excited about the possibilities of this partnership - it's a natural fit," says Lidén. Both companies take pride in putting customers first, meeting their high demands with our advanced manufacturing and innovative solutions, as well as our commitment to environmental responsibility," Lidén continued.

Last year, the Missouri Water Environment Association presented NorthStar Battery with the Gold Industrial Wastewater Pretreatment Award at MWEA's Annual meeting. In 2012 Eternity was awarded the prestigious Gold Environmental Performance Certificate by the UAE's Ministry of Environment and Water. Eternity CEO Dr. James Mark Stevenson sees the collaboration as a strategic expansion of their product range that will drive new business opportunities. "We've had a lot of success in the global motive power market and together with NorthStar we now will deliver our high quality products to a new range of customers," says Stevenson. "With our combined expertise and manufacturing excellence we will have a very attractive offer for the market place."

The new OPzV range will be built by Eternity in the UAE based on collaborative designs between the NorthStar and Eternity engineering teams, with deliveries starting Q1/Q2 2015 depending on model.
