Concorde Battery Corporation Celebrates 40th Anniversary
Concorde Battery Corporation, established in 1977, is celebrating 40 years in business. Concorde has been providing quality batteries to the general aviation community for four decades out of its West Covina, CA, facility.
Concorde continues to develop a culture dedicated to the success and satisfaction of its employees and customers. Its commitment is to consistently bring the highest quality product to market through continuous improvement, research and development, quality assurance and employee satisfaction. Sensitivity to customer’s needs has also been one of the cornerstones of Concorde’s unique approach to designing application-specific, drop-in, replacement batteries that do not require modification to the airframe.
After 39 years of exclusively manufacturing out of West Covina, CA, 2016 marked the opening of a second facility on the east coast in Austell, GA. The facility received FAA PMA approval in 2017, expanding Concorde’s manufacturing ability. Looking ahead, Concorde is developing a line of lithium-ion aircraft batteries that will provide the same record of reliability and safety that is expected of a Concorde battery.
Concorde supplies over 100 models of original equipment and direct-replacement, valve-regulated, sealed, lead-acid batteries for fixed-wing, rotorcraft and unmanned aircraft. Concorde batteries are installed as original equipment by the majority of aircraft manufacturers and adopted by military aircraft operators worldwide.
