BYD Donates Electric Forklift and Pallet Jacks to AV’s Dream Center Food Bank

BYD, “Build Your Dreams” announced the donation of a clean energy electric BYD forklift and two electric pallet jacks to the AV Dream Center, a food bank serving northern Los Angeles County.

The company, known for its unique blue-painted vehicles, donated an emission-free electric ECB16 three-wheel forklift with an 110V wall charger and two electric PMW20 pallet jacks.

BYD forklifts and its reliable iron phosphate battery chemistry are reportedly the first anywhere in the world that can utilize 110V AC charging. No special equipment or installations are required. That feature alone made the forklift uniquely and perfectly suited for operation at the Dream Center, where pallets of canned goods can often weigh 3,000 pounds.

The BYD pallet jacks will help volunteers too, as it is replacing manual jacks, making it easier for volunteers to move pallets of food.

BYD employee Vicki Miller, a volunteer with the Dream Center, helped facilitate the donation.
