Since the 1950s, this commercial battery booster manufacturer and distributor in Washington state owned the market. It only had one commercial competitor, which kept revenue consistent with over 650 clients like car dealerships and auction houses making monthly payments. The current owner had not marketed the company in over 15 years, leaving potential for growth to word-of-mouth and reputation.
