Environment

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

    Our state-of-the-art manufacturing facility features the latest technology in water treatment, air pollution control devices, and a revolutionary formation room equipped with a ventilation system that protects employees and the environment from harmful acid fumes. Our plant is a Greenfield site that was constructed solely as a motive power plant with the environment as our priority. At HAWKER®, we believe in promoting and protecting the health and safety of our employees; as well as the environment.


    HAWKER® is the environmental leader in the lead-acid battery industry. Our environmentally-safe, state-of-the-art control equipment operates in the 99.997% efficiency range and exceeds all known and anticipated EPA and OSHA regulations. We have installed special acid-resistant floors, ventilation systems, lead dust and acid fume filtration systems, as well as a water purification system. HAWKER® goes the extra step not only to protect, but also to 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 FLEXPAK 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.
