The company says it will have 100 jobs for local residents.
HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY – Resistacap Energy Products, a leading turn-key source for custom batteries, battery packs, and batter chargers, has announced it will relocate its headquarters from Huntsville, AL, Hillsborough County.
The company will hire 100 local employees for a range of positions including assembly, soldering, welding and accounting. The company also plans to invest up to $500,000 in the project for equipment and building renovations.
“We have chosen to relocate our corporate headquarters to Tampa because many of our targeted industries are well represented in the area, coupled with a friendly business environment that will support our continued growth,” said Gary Bolohan, president of Resistacap. “We appreciate the support we’ve received from the Tampa Hillsborough EDC during this process, particularly with connecting us to resources to help fulfill our workforce needs.”

Resistacap provides a variety of complex, leading-edge applications to the medical, military and aerospace, safety and security, and hand-held electronics industries for such products as respirators, portable X-ray systems, patient monitoring devices, defibrillators, night vision cameras, surveillance equipment and portable data terminals.
The Tampa Hillsborough Economic Development Corp. supported Resistacap with workforce assistance including recruitment for open positions and training grants, and connections to resources that can help with sales tax exemptions.
The company’s new headquarters will be located at 12180 Race Track Road. Over the next year, Resistacap plans to increase the size of its facility from 5,000 square feet to 15,000 square feet.
Resistacap joins a growing list of companies that have chosen to relocate their headquarters to Hillsborough, including BlueLine Assocs., the Mosaic Co., and Vendita Technology Group.
