About Us

M.A.R.S., Inc. was established in 2003 for the sole purpose of providing the battery industry with quality equipment and unparalleled customer support. We understand that our customers’ production is critical and strive to be available to them when they need it. We recognized the lack of support being offered by some of the bigger companies in this area and have dedicated ourselves to fill this void. Whether it be by having replacement parts available in a timely manner or a phone call to assist with a technical issue, MARS is here for you.

Karen Blalock

Co-Owner / Administrator

My name is Karen Blalock, I am Co-Owner of MARS INC. My late husband, Jeff Blalock, along with his business partner, Durwood Boyd began M.A.R.S. in 2003.

I have worked with the company for over 12 years in the accounts payable and receivable department, then moved into shipping, receiving and inventory control. I was very fortunate to travel with Jeff, over the course of 10 + years, and meet many of our wonderful customers. In April 2019, Jeff became very ill and passed sadly away April 2020. Having inherited his portion of the company I began to learn more of the day-to-day operations on the administrative level.

We have a strong product that I believe in and am proud to offer to our past and future customers. I have now moved into sales and was blessed to be able to represent MARS INC at the Fenibet Battery Conference in Londrina Brazil in 2022. I am honored to have been invited to be apart of the WGBI Mentor Program (Women in the Global Battery Industry). It is so exciting to be working with some of the most influential women in the battery industry. This program is designed to equip me to use my talents, skills, gifts and abilities to do my job with passion and excellence so I may better serve you our customer. We are a relationship oriented company. Thank you for taking the time to get to know our company and product. Please feel free to contact us if we can serve you in any way.
