About East Penn Manufacturing
A family-owned enterprise, we are strongly committed to fostering an atmosphere that honors the contributions of every employee. These contributions are celebrated in many ways. East Penn began as a dream of the Breidegam family. In 1946, DeLight Jr., a young Air Force veteran, started a battery business with his father, DeLight Sr. The location of their business was a small, one-room creamery in the village of Bowers, PA. In six decades, East Penn has grown from a one-room shop to one of the world’s leading battery manufacturers with over 8,000 employees, 450 product designs, and hundreds of awards for manufacturing and environmental excellence. Our core values are as strong today as they were in 1946, and we continue to embrace them as we prepare for the future of energy storage solutions and sustainable practices.
