The Continental Battery Systems Story

Quality and Integrity Since 1932

A Legacy of
Distributing Power

Continental Battery Manufacturing Corp. opened its doors in 1932. Founded by Ralph McCann, the Dallas-based company grew up with the automobile industry, supplying batteries to Henry Ford himself.

Since those pioneering days, Continental Battery Systems has become a nationally renowned battery distributor of the highest-quality batteries and distinguished customer service. We follow the same guiding principles that we did at the start: battery excellence, responsive customer-centric service, and a commitment to the highest quality, reliability and trust. Today, Continental Battery Systems is a single-source battery solution for all the devices and vehicles that power our lives.

I am so proud of the Continental Battery team and where we are headed. I love to see the stories of community support in so many places, as well as the support we are giving to our customers, to our communities and to each other.

Our team pulls together as ONE TEAM - we are committed to staying engaged and always looking forward. THANK YOU for your continued professionalism and vigilance and passion for our business; customer service; and above all safety.

Our leadership continues to focus on business management and building out our teams, organizing our company, moving our headquarters, getting our products and marketing lined up, and growing with selling more to current customers, adding more customers, and acquisition and greenfield expansion!

Over 87 years of business experience allows us to provide our customers with ample battery knowledge, excellent products, and as always, the unwavering commitment to our customers that our founder envisioned. Continental Battery is dedicated to preserving these core values as we move into the future.
