Established in 1914, The NOCO Company (NOCO) designs and creates premium consumer battery chargers, jump starters, solar panels, and portable power devices as well as a wide range related battery products and accessories. Through these world class offerings, NOCO® has effectively set the new standard in design, performance and safety and has introduced an entirely new generation of products. In 1914 in Cleveland, Ohio, Joseph Henry Nook, a local tire and battery distributor, set out to develop a product that would prevent battery corrosion. After several hundred different formulations, Mr. Nook began commercially manufacturing and distributing the world's first Battery Corrosion Preventative which he called NCP2. NCP2 is an acronym for "No Corrosion Product" which is applied in "2 Steps". The NCP2 brand quickly became a household name in every major battery and automotive shop. For over 100 years, the NCP2 brand has been preventing battery corrosion on over a billion vehicles and applications worldwide.
