WINSTON-SALEM, NC — In response to increased demand on the West Coast, Douglas Battery has expanded its California distribution center.
Douglas battery is a privately owned manufacturer of automotive and industrial batteries. The company currently operates distribution centers in North Carolina, Iowa, Texas, California, Connecticut and Pennsylvania.
