The Best in Batteries

Dec 23, 2019

There are few things more irritating than cranking the engine on your car, tractor, boat, or lawn mower and having that sinking feeling of the machinery not starting due to inadequate battery power.

To avoid these instances, come by your local Co-op and check out the Co-op branded batteries produced by East Penn Manufacturing Co., one of the world’s largest, most technologically advanced lead battery manufacturers. You’ll experience quality power and performance with every start.

East Penn produces a full line of top-quality Co-op batteries for truck, tractor, ag, lawn, and garden, power sports, and marine. They also make specialty batteries for applications such as cell phone transmitters, wheelchairs, backup power for solar and other renewable energy generators, floor machines, and alarm systems.

In addition, East Penn manufactures battery accessories including battery terminals, battery cables, and booster cables, as well as general wire products such as starter cable, welding cable, and trailer wire.

Much like Co-op, East Penn is steeped in history. This family-owned business started in 1946 out of a one-room shop in Lyons Station, Pa. Today, East Penn’s 520-acre complex employs more than 10,000 people who produce more than 450 battery designs.

Be on the lookout for a feature story on East Penn Manufacturing Co. that will appear in the January 2020 issue of The Cooperator.
