Following its acquisition of Battery Power Systems (BPS) in late 2011, Manbat has been working intently with the BPS team to further develop their combined industrial battery presence to offer the best possible products with an even greater level of service to the industrial battery market generally and the Access market in particular.
One of Manbat’s primary messages is for customers to put quality before price. This principle will pay dividends over the long term as a cheap low quality product will not be able to stand up to the rigours of everyday use like a quality battery. Put simply, it may cost a little more, but a quality battery will last a lot longer.
A quality product such as the US Battery XC2 range has a number of major advantages over a product manufactured to a price. These include a higher initial capacity, the highest total energy delivery over the life of the battery, fast charging up to its full rated capacity, which saves both time and money and compatibility with a wide range of chargers.
Working with several other companies that are also part of the Eco-Bat Technologies group, Manbat is able to offer its industrial battery customers a complete ‘battery sales through to waste management service’, which means that all of its customers’ environmental responsibilities are fulfilled and certified.
Where the assimilation work done during 2012 has really come to the fore to provide particular benefits to its customers is in the additional support that it is now able to offer them. As a result, in addition to the quality products that it can supply and the responsible disposal process it provides, Manbat can offer them a full battery management programme.
The programme encompasses everything from the original assessment of the customer’s battery requirements, through product maintenance planning, to the eventual battery replacement. This programme maximises the lifespan of each battery and delivers the most cost-effective solution to the customer’s battery needs.
