01/20/2003

SANTA FE SPRINGS, CA - Phillips Industries and Intra Technologies met earlier this month to discuss sales and training programs to assist with the on going roll out of the LVD. (Low Voltage Disconnect) Phillips Industries has become the exclusive distributor of products from Intra Technologies to independent warehouse distributor (WD) channels. Tukwila, Wash.-based Intra makes patented DC power management products for the trucking industry. Intra Technologies, a privately held company, develops DC power management products based on its proprietary semiconductor technologies which allow better, more efficient management of DC current flow. The Intra Switch -- the patented core of the company's technology -- allows Intra's products to handle an extremely high amount of current with very low heat generation. This simple concept enhances all aspects of DC power generation, storage and consumption. For more information, visit the company's website at www.intra-tech.com.

Based on patented technology developed by Intra Technologies, the Phillips LVD continually monitors battery voltage, disconnecting non-critical loads when a battery voltage reaches a critically low point, ensuring sufficient power for engine restart.

When asked the for the purpose of the meeting, Bob Phillips said, “We want our sales managers to have the best training material possible. The more they know, the more our customers know – that’s important to us – we call it Phillips Philosophy.”
