China, a leader in the manufacturing of lead-acid batteries, has shuttered almost 90% of its plants

China, a leader in the manufacturing of lead-acid batteries, has shuttered almost 90% of its plants as its government cracks down on lead poisoning cases. This means prices are going up and supply is going down, affecting not only the pricing of batteries but their availability for use in alarm panels and emergency lighting. Contractors who don't want to be caught short should review inventory and act fast.
