Following a hugely successful 2007 Powercell Industrial Battery Engineers Ltd is assured to continue its significant growth and successful development in 2008 following its acquisition of Pb Batteries.

“There has been a Pb Batteries with its Gryphon logo in the British industrial battery trade for over 30 years. The company is renowned for its traction batteries and has built a very successful reputation in the rail and marine sectors in particular, where the PB Batteries name will be retained, says Derek Anderson, Managing Director of Powercell, the independent supplier of a wide range of motive power batteries and chargers.

Already a major supplier of battery solutions to the logistics, airport and standby power sectors, this acquisition will not only enable Powercell to offer Pb Batteries' traction battery range to these industries but the purchase will also allow Powercell to expand its service operation as well as its expertise into the rail and marine industries and increase its market coverage.

“We attribute our growth to being able to deliver a quality product competitively and competently,” explains Derek. “It is not just about selling a product – it's about talking to and, most importantly, listening to customers and their needs.
