In the March of 1983, Tri-City Industrial Power began its journey as a company that provides customer-oriented battery services. Art and Barb Vetter began their business by focusing on the Dayton and Cincinnati markets. They worked long hours at a 1,200-square-foot rental space in West Carrollton to build a great client base. Barb worked for little or no pay during the company's humble beginnings.


In late 1983, Rick Rickling was hired as Tri-City Industrial Power's first full-time employee, and he's been with the company ever since.In 1993 the Fort Wayne location was opened. Rick did an amazing job of expanding the Cincinnati market while he and Art worked together to hire service technicians, including Brent Brodbeck who serves as our Corporate Service Director to this day. From 1983 to 2006, we've experienced growth that has allowed us to expand to Columbus , Fort Wayne, and Cleveland, where we continue to serve you with great batteries and professional expertise.
