Congratulations to NorthStar Battery for winning 3rd place in their category at the 35th Annual Sertoma Chili Cook-Off! Thanks to more than 8,000 visitors throughout the weekend and around 300 dedicated volunteers and sponsors, the event was able to successfully raise over $125,000 to support local youth charities such as the Boys and Girls Club of Springfield. We love to hear about victories like the one NorthStar achieved at Sertoma because it gives us an excuse to do some much-deserved crowing about our clients.
Several times each year, NorthStar Battery commits to a company-wide philanthropic initiative. These initiatives allow them to not only come together as a team, but also support the community, both of which are very important to the organization. One of their favorite initiatives from last year was working together to do landscaping for the Ronald McDonald House. This year, they decided on Sertoma. To prep for the event, they held a chili cook-off between employees at their North and South plants. One winner was chosen from each plant and they had a final cook-off to decide who would go on to compete at Sertoma. The winner was declared Chief Executive Officer Carlos Estrada, thanks to a family recipe that was handed down from several generations.
Like many of our industrial clients, Northstar Battery attends multiple trade shows each year. For the Sertoma Chili Cook-Off, they asked us to create a booth display that could be repurposed for several upcoming events. We came up with a customized table top graphic, printed banner and snap-on table skirt with a separate layer of vinyl that could be removed prior to the event.
Since its establishment in 2000, Northstar Battery has become a global leader in the design, manufacture and deployment of innovative batteries and site solutions in over 120 countries. When a customer makes a purchase with NorthStar, they know they’ve invested in a product that is not only reliable and cost efficient, but also a company that is environmentally responsible.
