company profile

Banner Batteries is an innovative, expanding producer of high-quality starter batteries. The company with headquarters in Leonding, Austria, has been producing batteries for all kinds of vehicles since 1937. The family business, managed by Andreas Bawart and Mag. Thomas Bawart, produces and sells over 3.7 million starter batteries per year and generated a turnover of EUR 233 million in the business year 2013/14. This makes Banner one of the companies with the most tradition as well as one of the most experienced and most important brands in accumulator manufacturing. Banner batteries are part of the original equipment of many models. More than 90% of the turnover is generated via 15 subsidiaries abroad and in a further 50 countries in Europe, Africa and Asia.

Innovations characterise the company’s success. As early as 1978, Banner was the first European manufacturer to introduce a completely maintenance-free battery and perfected this pure calcium technology in the Power Bull; the patented leakage protection ACCUSAFE characterises the universal Uni Bull and the AGM-battery Running Bull is our current contribution to the careful handling of our environment.

Our most recent innovation is used in micro-hybrid vehicles with start / stop function as in the example BMW. Ongoing research and development partnerships with large car manufacturers such as VW enable the family business Banner to regularly achieve top positions with its brand products in independent comparisons.
