Battery-powered mobility systems provide users with additional freedom and independence. None of these ingeniously designed vehicles, however, can perform to their full potential without a top-quality battery as the fuel source. In fact, choosing the right battery for your equipment can enhance performance and safety, simplify charging and maintenance and, in the long-run, save you time, money and peace of mind.There's a simple reason why MK Battery is the number one choice among all major wheelchair manufacturers and leading rehab equipment suppliers. These industry leaders cannot afford to have their reputations riding on anything but the best power source available. That's why the MK name is your assurance of getting the best battery available for your wheelchair, scooter or other mobility device.

The company has over 100 employees including Mark Wels who continues to manage the company as President. MK Battery was acquired by East Penn Mfg. Co. Inc., Lyon Station, PA, in September 1995, and operates as a wholly-owned subsidiary of East Penn. In January 2002 MK Battery opened its first direct sales and distribution branch in Europe, located in Kettering, Northamptonshire, England. A second European branch opened in March 2005 in Arnhem, The Netherlands and, in 2009, the company opened offices and distribution in Sydney, Australia to service the Asia Pacific region.

Headquartered in Anaheim, CA, MK Battery now operates 20 distribution centers in the USA, six in Europe, and one in Australia, out of which we deploy a fleet of route delivery trucks. Each distribution center is staffed by MK Battery personnel. Additionally, East Penn Mfg. Co. (DEKA) provides warehouse services to MK Battery in numerous other USA locations. East Penn Canada, East Penn owned, markets MK Battery's brand names in Canada and supports MK Battery with inventory in multiple locations throughout Canada.
