Environment

  • Environmental responsibility, particularly in our industry, is a critical part of our overall operations.  

    The HAWKER® battery manufacturing facility in Ooltewah, TN features the latest technology in water treatment, air pollution control devices, and a revolutionary formation room. All of our state-of-the-art equipment meets and exceeds all EPA and OSHA regulations. As a leader in the lead-acid battery industry, our plant is a Greenfield site constructed solely with the environment as a top priority. At HAWKER®, we go the extra step not only to protect our people, but to also live in harmony with the environment.


    Consider our cradle-to-grave approach to meeting your battery needs. With the HAWKER® Recycling Program, we manufacture your lead-acid batteries in an environmentally-responsible manner and reclaim your spent lead-acid batteries so they can be recycled and reused. We also offer environmentally friendly alternatives to our lead-acid products such as Thin Plate Pure Lead (TPPL) and Lithium-ion battery technologies. Our sealed FLEX® and FLEXPAKTM TPPL batteries are environmentally friendly, produce minimal gassing, and are 99% recyclable. Our FLEX®Li3 lithium-ion batteries offer an outstanding life cycle; and when they reach the end of their motive power life, can be repurposed for reserve power. 


    At HAWKER®, we are always looking for ways to produce products that solve motive power problems with environmentally responsible solutions.
