Hoppecke is the leading specialist for industrial battery systems and at the same time the largest battery manufacturer in European ownership. While the parent firm was founded in Germany in 1927 as a family-run enterprise by Carl Zoellner – carrying the motto ‘Power from innovation’ – the UK company Hoppecke Industrial Batteries was formed in the early 1980s, based in Newcastle-under-Lyme, Staffordshire.

Offering customers efficient and reliable power supply solutions for every industrial application, Hoppecke specialises in such sectors as motive power, reserve power for IT/telecoms, power stations, solar energy, UPS (uninterrupted power supplies) and special power for rail and underground. 

Hoppecke’s order books are continually expanding due to the company’s strong focus on customer satisfaction, giving the end-user solutions to their needs through constant innovation, commitment to quality, rapid and reliable service, and a deep sense of responsibility for the environment and its workforce.
