“Few companies are privileged to celebrate their 95th anniversaries,” says Hawk. “We couldn’t have reached this milestone without our employees’ dedication and hard work. We’re proud of their efforts to provide high-performance, green batteries to people on six continents. And we look forward to creating dependable products and good jobs for the next 95 years and beyond.”
