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 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.
