The EnerSys story began over 100 years ago, when The Electric Storage Battery Company ( ESB) was founded near Philadelphia in 1888 - its Chloride Accumulator Battery helped launch the Age of Electricity. ESB grew dramatically over the years, through product innovation and by expanding the uses for battery power for automotive and industrial applications.
Today's EnerSys can trace its roots to the ESB industrial battery business. The current company was formed in 2000 from the Motive Power and Reserve Power businesses of Yuasa Inc. In March 2002 EnerSys purchased the Energy Storage Group of Invensys plc making EnerSys one of the world's largest providers of standby DC power solutions. EnerSys' leading brands include Hawker, PowerSafe, DataSafe, EnerSys Ironclad® and Genesis.
