Harris Battery expands to the West Coast

Harris Battery Co. of Bolivar, Ohio, expanded its operations to the West Coast with the acquisition of the Los Angeles branch of Discover Energy, a global leader in stored energy products.

Harris Battery's new California operation features a 6,000-square-foot regional distribution center in Westminster and a sales office in San Francisco. The market area served by the new branch includes Arizona, California, Hawaii, New Mexico, Nevada, Oregon, Texas, Washington and Wyoming.

"The addition of California to our service area demonstrates our commitment to the Clean & Green movement and to the Discover product,” said Jerry Harris, president of Harris Battery, in a statement. “These products not only use the highest levels of sustainable and environmental stewardship, but are also engineered to provide more energy, while reducing our environmental footprint.”

Harris Battery is the U.S. factory warehouse for Discover dry cell batteries, which carry the Clean & Green trademark.

Founded in 1979, Harris Battery provides replacement and original-equipment batteries for golf carts, floor scrubbers, marine, RV, commercial, industrial, renewable energy, uninterruptible power supply and other applications.
