NOVI, MI (May 19, 2020) - Prestolite Electric, a global manufacturer and supplier of high-output alternators for OE manufacturers and the aftermarket, announced today that it will begin producing a new line of Leece-Neville® IdlePro Extreme 24V 275-amp brushless alternators at its 350,000-square-foot manufacturing facility in Arcade, N.Y., later this month.

“As the needs of our customers continue to broaden and diversify, we’re excited to add new product lines to keep their vehicles running at peak efficiency,” said Prestolite Electric’s Vice President of Sales for North America, South America and Australia Nick Laenen. “And we’re pleased to bring additional manufacturing capabilities to our Arcade plant, where we know we can count on a talented and experienced team that is committed to the highest levels of quality.”

Leece-Neville IdlePro Extreme high efficiency/high output alternators deliver exceptional output at low engine speeds, in a lighter weight and lower maintenance package. They provide the power to meet and maintain vehicle system voltage requirements, which results in better battery life and greater overall vehicle uptime. The alternators also feature Isolated Ground technology, which eliminates stray voltage and protects the engine from potentially severe electrolytic damage. This technology eliminates electrical noise that can cause ghost or false engine codes and result in unnecessary diagnostic troubleshooting and increased vehicle downtime.
