About Us

History of Dakota Battery & Electric

Dakota Battery & Electric was established in 1952 out of a garage off of 8th street (Mt. Rushmore Rd) fixing batteries. From that location, it moved from 3rd street in the early ’60s. From there it moved to the Deadwood Avenue area. Dakota Battery has been at its present location since 1995. Tom started out with the business in 1974. Casey joined the business in 1995. Tom and Casey took over ownership of Dakota Battery & Electric in 2006.

Dakota Battery & Electric is proudly celebrating its 72nd anniversary of providing excellent products and service. Our commitment to providing the highest quality products and services allowed us to establish unique relationships with our loyal customers, who are the main reason why we were able to continue over the years.
