Sales Channels for Discover Battery Technologies

Today’s purchase decisions are being made by safety supervisors, legal teams and cost accountants.

Mining operations, transit companies, cities, hospitals, schools, airport authorities and manufacturing organizations are all required to implement rigorous risk management and environmental impact programs. These programs enable them to manage workplace hazards that may affect their employees, their communities and their environments. Failure to do so can result in injury and lead to civil or even criminal charges.

Discover®  batteries are LEED certified and can help purchasers reduce these risks and improve their environmental performance. Discover® has responded to the needs of these industries for sealed non-spillable, non-hazardous batteries in "drop in" replacement sizes. Discover ® batteries meet the environmental and occupational health and safety compliance needs and – over the life of the product – save users money and time in service costs and compensation claims. The Discover® line of batteries has been designed and engineered with the footprints, performance and terminal options to respond to all of our user’s needs. From button terminals to Dual SAE / T type terminals to drop terminals for 4D and 8D types, the options are many.  

The Discover® line of batteries and matching chargers give you an opportunity to develop sales and provide solutions in areas that were not available before, where the customer or user is appreciative of the unique features and benefits and where margins can be maintained and protected.
