    OLD SAYBROOK, Conn. – December 4, 2017
    Comcast Business today announced that BatteryJunction.com, an online battery retailer, is using Comcast Business internet and phone services to power its daily operations. With about 50 employees, BatteryJunction.com is a Top 1000 Internet Retailer ranked business serving consumers, businesses and government agencies with portable power products like batteries and flashlights, as well as industrial safety, tactical and outdoor products.

    The family-owned business started 15 years ago in the owner’s garage and is now based in a 40,000-square foot facility in Old Saybrook, Connecticut. The company is stocked with more than 3 million batteries, 25,000 battery chargers and 100,000 flashlights to meet customers’ immediate requirements. Businesses and individuals from across the globe purchase products directly through the company’s website.  

    “The internet runs everything; our business wouldn’t exist without it. As we process up to 1,500 orders a day, we rely heavily on Comcast Business Internet to manage our orders and maintain our website,” said Peter Martin, digital marketing and technology manager at BatteryJunction.com. “Over the past 10 years, Comcast Business’ highly reliable service has helped us to get our orders out under difficult weather conditions and during a fire at our previous location about eight years ago. Comcast worked with us to divert our internet traffic back to the owner’s residence during Hurricane Irene so that we could continue business operations and order fulfillment until power and data were re-established at our headquarters.”

    The company uses 100 Megabit-per-second (Mbps) Comcast Business Internet to stay connected to its customers along with Comcast Business Voice lines and Comcast Business TV services at its headquarters. 

    A reliable internet connection is needed as a number of BatteryJunction.com employees work remotely and connect through a virtual private network (VPN) to access the company network. The reliability of Comcast Business Internet enables employees to use web-based online meeting and video conferencing platforms to collaborate with customers, vendors, developers and consultants.

    “The internet is the lifeblood of many retailers. Comcast Business’ high-capacity internet service along with our reliable phone service means that retailers are connected to their customer base for optimal service and order fulfillment,” said Paul Savas, vice president of Comcast Business for the Western New England Region. “BatteryJunction.com’s growth from a small business to a top retailer that has shipped over a million orders is a testament to the reliability and scalability of our offerings.”
