In 1950, William (Bill) Leonhardt, President of Powertron Battery Company, was designing and building homes when he opened a battery manufacturing business with his father in Puyallup, Washington. In 1962, Bill sold the business and moved to California to establish his home and battery manufacturing business in Orange County.
As a Christian and family-focused entrepreneur, Bill believes faith is critical to small business success. Proverbs 3:13 says, “Happy is the man who finds wisdom, and the man who gains understanding.” A willingness to learn and try new things has driven his small business success.
