June 17, 2001 by Jeff Shepard

A new maker of sealed VRLA batteries, NorthStar Battery Co. (Springfield, MO), is announcing its official launch on July 1, 2001. Formed by joining together a small group of battery industry executives and a group of industrialists, the company has announced three main goals: to manufacture the most reliable batteries in the market; to provide a level of unparalleled customer service; and to continue to develop innovative, leading-edge products.

The new company has built a 140,000sqft manufacturing facility. It will begin shipping six new 12V products, ranging in size from 40Ah to 100Ah, from this facility in July. The new products are suitable for use in telecommunications, UPS and industrial applications.
