The Bright Star Battery Co. was in 1925 (and probably still was in 1930) on the third floor of the Hoboken Terminal building (15th and Washington Streets to the Hudson River, thus Riverhead in the address); also known as the Hoboken Manufacturers Terminal Building or commonly referred to as the Lipton Tea or Standard Brands building.) The company was established in 1909 in New York. It is believed that the company moved out of Hoboken to Clifton, NJ in the 1930s. As of 2010, the company was still in business in the United States.
