LONG BEACH, Calif. – Global automotive supplier DENSO received honors for its new PowerEdge alternator. The PowerEdge was recognized as ‘One of the Top 20 Products’ for 2015. The award was given by Heavy Duty Trucking magazine, one of the nation’s most prestigious industry publications. Popularly known as HDT, the magazine considers products based on the innovation and contribution to customer productivity. Deborah Lockridge, HDT Editor added “the award also honors the most innovative and significant new products that address industry issues and help fleets improve their bottom line”.

The DENSO PowerEdge alternator was created in response to the market need for higher efficiency alternators. The team at DENSO developed a cutting-edge design that not only improves efficiency but also provides higher amps at idle. The PowerEdge is on average 10 pounds lighter than industry leading competition and is much smaller in overall size. This compact package allows for additional payload, significantly improved performance and gives technicians ease of installation and service.

“We are honored to be voted as one of the Top 20 Products by a leading industry publication such as HDT”, said Frank Jenkins, senior manager of DENSO Product and Services Americas’ Commercial and Heavy Duty Group. “Introduced in September 2015, our PowerEdge alternator continues to impress and to make great strides in the industry. ”The PowerEdge's compact size and powerful output lead the industry in capability. PowerEdge helps manage the electrical demands of modern trucks while minimizing operating costs. We at DENSO truly look forward to continuing to produce products that exceed consumer expectations for many years to come.”
