Advanced Charging Technologies (ACT), a leader in industrial and electric vehicle battery charging, has announced a partnership with Green Charge Technologies (GCT), a high tech firm specializing in energy efficient and cost effective battery charging and monitoring solutions.

ACT and GCT will collaborate to improve the existing ACT solution portfolio as well as begin development on the next generation of industrial and electric vehicle battery chargers and monitoring systems.

“We at GCT are quite excited about partnering with ACT,” said Dr. Nasser Kutkut, founder of GCT. “As ACT has become a formidable player in the industrial and EV battery charger markets over a short period of time, combining ACT solutions portfolio with GCT’s expertise and technology know how will allow ACT to offer state of art solutions and increase their market share.”

“ACT is extremely enthusiastic about our new relationship with Nasser and his team at GCT,” said Bob Istwan, president of ACT. “ACT has accomplished a lot over our first four years, however this new partnership will take ACT to a whole new level.”
