HOLLAND, Michigan — While many producers of advanced electrical systems have their sights set on electric vehicles, one West Michigan manufacturer is pursuing a more underserved sector.
Instead of focusing on the passenger vehicle market, Holland-based Volta Power Systems LLC produces a variety of lithium-ion batteries, alternators and power inverters for high-end recreational vehicles and marine and heavy equipment applications.
Rather than use the systems for propulsion applications, Volta develops its products as a lightweight or performance alternative, particularly for luxury coaches and recreational vehicles.
