Manbat Launch New Website

Manbat is proud to announce to CAAR members the launch of its new website, which is designed to engage visitors and quickly provide them with detailed information about the company, the services it can provide, the products it supplies and its parent company, Eco-Bat Technologies.

The site is now live and as well as providing information in these key areas, members can also simply find the nearest branch within its twelve branch national distribution network or view the company’s latest news and developments.

Adopting Manbat’s revised company imagery and incorporating its new ‘The Difference Is Clear’ strapline, members only need to glance at the home page to clearly find their destination from the seven main headings, allowing easy navigation. These areas: Company, Markets, The Brands, Media, Information, Marketing and Contact, allow members to access the specific information they need with the minimum number of ‘clicks’.

As result the site provides members with a single point to discover that Manbat not only supplements their automotive range with commercial vehicle batteries, but with batteries for the motorcycle, leisure, marine, golf, mobility and industrial sectors too. With a portfolio of brands that include VARTA®, Lucas, Numax, Odyssey, Optima, Sonnenschein and US Batteries, members can be assured that every need has the perfect solution.

Under the ‘Information’ heading members can update themselves with Manbat’s scrap battery policy or with its warranty details. It is here that they can also find vital technical information and the details of its ‘closed loop’ recycling policy, which allows members to see how the company can assure its customers of its environmental credentials in that the entire recycling process is contained within the ECOBAT Technologies group of companies and how the process ensures that 99.97% of each scrap battery it collects is recycled.

There are also links to some of the other company’s within the group, notably BPS, a business Manbat acquired in late 2011 as part of its strategy to grow its industrial battery presence.

Members are able to download Point-Of-Sale material such as the recent posters, headers and A4 leaflets for both the Lucas and Numax brands and which were promoting their respective automotive, CV, leisure and marine ranges. In addition there is a comprehensive range of product catalogues and other promotional material, and to ensure peace-of-mind, there is also a detailed product application guide to ensure the correct battery is specified for the purpose.

Even the media is catered for with an area dedicated to the press, which contains press releases, news stories and feature articles relating to the company.

In addition to power storage products, Manbat is also the first place for members to come for their associated accessories. So if the need is for state-of-the-art Numax ‘connect+forget’® battery chargers, solar panels, DC/AC current inverters, battery boxes or battery protectors, a visit to this new site is guaranteed to provide the answer.
