Established in 1962 as a battery manufacturing business in Orange
County, California, Powertron Battery Co understands what makes an
excellent product. In 1980, Powertron evolved into a distributor for
major battery manufacturing companies from around the world. We stock a
large inventory and ship anywhere in the United States, and we welcome
walk-in customers, as well. Our staff is highly knowledgeable and
trained with many years of experience in the battery industry.
William (Bill) Leonhardt, President of Powertron Battery Company, started out designing and building homes while opening a battery manufacturing business with his father in Puyallup, Washington, in 1950. In 1962, Bill sold the business and moved to California to design and build his home and battery-manufacturing business in Orange County.
As a Christian and a family-focused entrepreneur, Bill believes that faith is a key ingredient in small business success. Proverbs 3:13 says, "Happy is the man who finds wisdom, and the man who gains understanding." Bill has learned that a person needs to be a lifelong learner in order to be successful in business.
