We Believe in Corporate Responsibility

Safe. Secure. Sound.

Our working environment is home to the people who keep the business at Continental Battery Co running. We believe it is our duty as a responsible organization to ensure that their safety and security is consistently sound.

Within each part of our company, there exists an attitude of accountability. Each individual is just as responsible for looking out for their fellow workers as they are for themselves. As a result, there are rarely any accidents or altercations, and very few issues of owning up. Just as responsibility trickles down from the top, so does the friendly demeanor of people who know how to work well together.

We Are a Diverse Company

With a legacy that has been growing since 1932, Continental Battery Co didn’t rise to success by simply having top quality products and excellent customer service. It came about because leaders, management, and employees are a united team of exceptional, diverse individuals working together.

At Continental Battery Co, inclusion comes naturally because we believe that everyone matters. A different perspective often leads to a stronger, more flexible team. We think a point of difference is a welcome departure from ordinary, so we encourage cultural sharing and exchange.

Continental Battery Co employees work in an atmosphere of acceptance and support that translates into happy people working to create their own success as well as the company’s. For over a century, Continental Battery Co continues to uphold the values and integrity laid down by our founders.

Continental Battery Co is definitely a diverse company, but to fully experience what that means, get to know the wonderful people who call it home and you’ll see for yourself.

We’re Part of Our
Larger Community

For nearly 100 years since Continental Battery Co began, we have consistently maintained close ties to the communities we serve. Today, just as it was in 1932, our goal remains the same: to provide the highest quality products and services to the communities we serve. Committed to be the very best, our dedicated host of highly valued employees and affiliates are the ambassadors of a company dedicated to their success—Continental Battery Co.

We’re In This for the Long Haul

At Continental Battery Co, we take sustainability seriously. Batteries continue to be our passion and environmental safety is our ongoing  commitment. Since 1932, we have been not only selling batteries, but also recycling them because we feel it is our responsibility as mindful corporate citizens.

Today, Continental Battery Co actually recycles more batteries than we sell. Within our nationwide network the thousands of dealers who consistently return used batteries for recycling, continue to demonstrate the pride we take in our environmental initiatives.

Continental Battery Co is committed to recycling/reconditioning 100% of our batteries. 

No batteries go to the landfill!

With senior leadership support, Continental is dedicated to building a more sustainable working environment. 

We are committed to protecting our planet for future generations.  Our goal is to have 50% of our total annual electricity consumption generated from renewable energy by 2025.

We are passionate about handling batteries safely and efficiently.  With a nationwide network of over 25,000 dealers returning used batteries, we are proud to contribute to America’s greatest recycling initiatives. Due to the rapid acceleration of climate change in recent years, we have prioritized our efforts to develop solutions to reduce our operational carbon footprint.

Continental Battery Co also strives to improve our carbon footprint by decreasing our emissions.  We have accomplished this by improving our fleet fuel efficiency, replacing older vehicles with more fuel-efficient models, and switching to V6 engines.  In addition, we have reduced travel (air/ground) and implemented remote video conference technology.

We are diverting as many recyclable items from the landfill as possible.  Our recycling initiative goes beyond batteries.  Our recycling programs include repurposing/recycling electronic waste, including mobile phones, laptops and other electronic devices to be disposed of through approved waste vendors.  We also partnered with recycling vendors to ensure cardboard is recycled properly and kept out of landfills.  Finally, we are reducing our paper consumption by implementing programs like digital data storage and paperless orders.

Our battery technology and variety of products provide storage capability for solar-generated renewable energy, giving Continental Battery Co and our customers the ability to make the world a more carbon-neutral environment.
