Farewell to battery industry veteran Sergio Pezzotti: 1932-2024 – Batteries International


April 3, 2024: It is with sadness that Batteries International reports the death of Sergio Pezzotti, a founder of battery components group Accumalux, who died in Monza, Italy on March 19 aged 91.  We hope to contribute a fuller piece for the magazine later in the year.

Sergio, a 66-year veteran of the battery industry, was laid to rest in Monza — just over a year after the death of his beloved wife Cesarina.

His son Alberto, director of Italian plastics moulding company Technofin 98, told Batteries International that his father was born in Milan on September 19, 1932, when Sergio’s father was working for Alfa Romeo.

Sergio later graduated from the Alfa Romeo technical school — joining the battery industry in 1951 working for a company that was producing hard rubber battery cases and lids.

He went on to be a pioneer in the development of plastic injection moulding for battery plastic components and, in 1960, Sergio joined Accuma in Monza. Accuma specialized in the production of materials for industry including cases and lids for lead batteries.

Sergio was among the founders of the Accumalux Group in Luxembourg in 1976 and he also founded several similar companies across Europe, the US and Africa from the 1970s to the 2010s.

He was also involved in the sale of equipment for the production of battery plastic components or moulds by those companies in South America, Asia and Europe, as well as research and development well into the 2010s.

Sergio retired shortly after the Covid pandemic.

Son Alberto told Batteries International his father will be greatly missed by himself and his wife, Elena, as well as by many people in the industry that have sent condolences to the family.
