Concorde Battery Corporation is a manufacturer of premium quality lead-acid batteries. The present product lines include valve regulated (sealed) lead-acid batteries (VRB) for aircraft, marine, medical, telecommunications, emergency backup, and photovoltaic applications as well as flooded lead-acid batteries for commercial and military aircraft.
Since 1979 Concorde Battery Corporation has manufactured aircraft batteries and batteries for shipboard use by the U.S. Military. Concorde Battery Corporation has provided the Department of Defense with over 150,000 military batteries manufactured to rigid quality requirements. Concorde Batteries have been adopted by worldwide militaries including Canadian, British, Australian and Italian air forces.
Concorde's manufacturing facility is AS9100 REV. B:2004 and ISO 9001:2000 certified and is fully qualified under the FAA Parts Manufacturing Approval (PMA) process and manufactures a full line of batteries for commercial aviation. Original equipment batteries are supplied to Adam Aircraft, American Champion, American Eurocopter, Aviat, Bombardier / Learjet, Cessna, Columbia, Commander Aircraft, Dassault, Diamond, Enstrom Helicopter, Erickson Air Crane, Extra, Gippsland, Grobe, Gulfstream, Hawker Beechcraft, JetPROP, Liberty Aerospace, Maule, Micco, Mooney, Pilatus, Piper Aircraft, Robinson Helicopter, Scaled Composites, Schweizer, Seawind, Sino Swearingen, Slingsby Aviation, SOCATA, Twin Commander, Van’s, Zlin, and other airframe manufacturers. The replacement market is supplied through distributors located in the United States, Canada, Europe and the Pacific Rim.
The valve regulated aircraft battery provides the customer with a no maintenance, non-spillable, high reliability product designed to replace existing nickel-cadmium and lead-acid designs. They have been adopted in aircraft such as the Learjet, Citation, F/A-18, F-117A (Stealth), and C-130. In many of these applications, the VRB is a direct replacement for maintenance intensive, expensive nickel-cadmium batteries. The valve regulated design offers the user a tremendous improvement over flooded lead-acid in the areas of vibration resistance, shock resistance, and cold temperature performance.
Concorde valve regulated batteries of the Lifeline, Chairman, Reliant and Sun Xtender series are designed for the marine, electric wheelchair, standby power and photovoltaic industries. These battery types incorporate many of the same design and quality features contained in our aircraft batteries.
Concorde is committed to the proposition that the customer deserves the best performing and highest quality product. Our batteries are tailored to the application rather than make the designer settle for what is available. It is this commitment - to meet the needs of the customer - that sets Concorde apart.
The People -
People are the most important ingredient in the success of a company, and we are extremely fortunate to have many talented and experienced people under one roof. The management group at Concorde represents over one hundred fifty years of battery manufacturing experience. Our President, Research and Development, Engineering, Manufacturing, Quality Assurance, Marketing and Sales personnel are knowledgeable, friendly, and ready to meet any challenge for superior battery technology.
The Future -
It is our belief that there is a growing need for special purpose sealed lead-acid batteries in such areas as inertial navigation systems, stand-by emergency lighting, cable television, computer back-up, and motive power to mention a few. To manufacture quality VRB batteries requires exacting knowledge, expertise, and a commitment to quality needed in few segments of the battery industry. Concorde has the knowledge, skill, people and desire to produce the finest quality batteries.
Concorde's research and development in the valve regulated lead-acid battery continues to bring considerable interest from military, marine, UPS, motive power and medical equipment manufacturers and users. Continued effort from every level of management has contributed to our growth and success.
