Lead battery additives firm Hammond Group has appointed Brad Bisaillon to the company’s leadership team as it continues to develop innovations in performance additives for the battery industry.
As vice president of sales, Bisaillon will be responsible for leading Hammond’s efforts to support global battery manufacturers produce a new generation of advanced lead batteries.
Bisaillon brings more than 15 years of sales experience, with expertise in power generation and energy storage in both the lead-acid and lithium-ion segments most recently with American Battery Solutions, Nokian Heavy Tyres, and Trojan Battery Company.
Terry Murphy, president and CEO of Hammond Group, said: “Brad’s understanding of international business environments, experience working with global accounts, and support of strategic end-user customers will enable him to strengthen relationships with our existing customers and develop new relationships with customers in emerging markets.”
Bisaillon said: “Advanced lead batteries, incorporating Hammond’s performance additives, along with many other significant changes in battery configurations, have dramatically improved charge acceptance and cycle life.
“The new generation of advanced lead batteries that are being manufactured by our customers offer a more sensible and sustainable alternative to expensive, complex and difficult to integrate lithium-ion systems for the rapid expansion in the motive power, telecom, and energy storage sectors.
“I am particularly excited about communicating the benefits of GravityGuard™, Hammond’s most recent product innovation that significantly reduces acid stratification in lead batteries.”
