Remy Battery hires battery veteran Mike Olson

For the record, battery manufacturer Remy Battery appointed Mike Olson in April to help build sales and brand awareness in the US.

With more than 25 years in the battery industry, Olson is returning to his Wisconsin roots to join Remy.

“I enjoy the battery business and take a great deal of pride in providing the smartest solutions for my customers,” said Olson. “Today, batteries help to power so much of our lives, which makes my job both interesting and a whole lot of fun.”

Remy Battery is a family-owned business that began as a battery rebuilder in 1931, at the height of the depression. Founder Michael Zurich reinvested in the company in the early 1940s and the firm began to make its own batteries.

Since then it has expanded its portfolio to offer all kinds of battery chemistry.
