Our Legacy

The worldwide demand for power is insatiable, and C&D is committed to providing industry-leading products and services to ensure that power is available when and where it’s needed. Our strong financial footing has been strengthened by KPS, a global private equity firm dedicated to investing in manufacturing and industrial companies. KPS acquired C&D in 2017 with an eye toward leveraging the company’s leadership in industrial power storage for growth in the global energy solutions and services market with our state-of-the-art energy storage, research, engineering and manufacturing facilities.

Key to that strategy is building C&D’s capacity to meet the growing demand for high-quality energy storage solutions worldwide. We built our reputation by providing industry-leading industrial power solutions and continue to do so through innovative engineering. Our legacy as a trusted power solutions partner is enhanced by our innovative use of advanced technologies including pure lead, nanocarbon and lithium-ion.

OUR HISTORY

  • 2018

    C&D adquiere Trojan Battery Company, un fabricante líder de baterías de ciclo profundo para aplicaciones móviles y estacionarias.

  • 2017

    KPS adquiere C&D, aprovechando el liderazgo de la compañía en almacenamiento de energía industrial para el crecimiento en el mercado global de soluciones y servicios de energía.

  • 2012

    C&D compra a su socio en Shanghai y se hace cargo de la propiedad de la planta de fabricación. La planta proporciona a Asia, Europa y Medio Oriente los mismos productos de alta calidad que los clientes norteamericanos de C&D esperan.

  • 2000

    C&D compra la planta de fabricación de Panasonic en Reynosa, México. La adquisición trae la tecnología MSE, una tecnología líder de plomo puro. Al combinarlo con las aleaciones de rejilla de pureza ultra alta de C&D y las técnicas de fabricación avanzadas, se obtiene la batería msEndur II, que sigue siendo una de las baterías VRLA más confiables jamás desarrolladas.

  • 1999

    C&D adquiere la división Dynasty de Johnson Controls, incluída su planta de fabricación en Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Desde entonces, la tecnología de Dynasty se ha incorporado a las baterías de larga duración TEL, UPS High Rate Max y Advanced Energy Storage de C&D.

  • 1970

    C&D trabaja con Bell Labs para desarrollar tecnología de batería de plomo y calcio. Al ofrecer muchas ventajas sobre los diseños anteriores, la nueva fuente de energía se convierte rápidamente en el estándar de la industria y sigue siendo la tecnología preferida para muchos de los clientes de C&D.

  • 1955

    C&D abre una planta de fabricación de baterías en Attica, Indiana. La planta más antigua de la compañía aún en funcionamiento, fabrica todas las baterías de plomo- ácido de C&D.

  • 1941

    Durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial, C&D centró su atención en el desarrollo de baterías industriales, un enfoque que se perfeccionó en las décadas posteriores a medida que la compañía se expandió a sistemas de baterías para la floreciente industria de las comunicaciones, una estrategia que ha permitido que la compañía siga siendo relevante durante más de 100 años.

  • 1916

    Impulsado por una visión del potencial de la electricidad para potenciar el nuevo siglo, Carlile y Doughty lanzaron C&D en 1916. Los fundadores se apresuraron a reconocer el papel disruptivo que la naciente industria automovilística tendría en el mercado y la sociedad, y la compañía siguió su éxito inicial produciendo baterías para alimentar esos vehículos.

  • 1906

    En 1906, Frank Carlile y Leon Doughty, dos estudiantes de último año de la Escuela Central de Capacitación Manual de Filadelfia, sorprendieron a sus maestros y a la comunidad cuando ofertaron y ganaron un contrato para electrificar su escuela secundaria. El espíritu de innovación de Carlile y Doughty sigue vivo en el continuo énfasis de C&D en las soluciones energéticas para diversos sistemas de energía industrial en todo el mundo. Donde hay una necesidad de energía industrial de calidad, C&D está ahí.

  • 2018

    C&D acquires Trojan Battery Company, a leading manufacturer of deep cycle batteries for motive and stationary applications.

  • 2017

    KPS acquires C&D, leveraging the company’s leadership in industrial power storage for growth in the global energy solutions and services market.

  • 2012

    C&D buys out its partner in Shanghai and takes full ownership of the manufacturing facility. The plant provides Asia, Europe and the Middle East with the same high-quality products that C&D’s North American customers have come to expect.

  • 2000

    C&D purchases Panasonic’s manufacturing plant in Reynosa, Mexico. The acquisition brings MSE technology, a premier pure-lead technology.
