company profileBanner: the quality Austrian battery
Banner Batteries is an innovative, expanding manufacturer of top quality starter batteries. The company has been producing batteries for all kinds of vehicles since 1937. The family-run business managed by Andreas and Thomas Bawart manufactures and markets more than 4 million starter batteries annually and generated a turnover of more than 225 million Euros in the fiscal year 2010/11. Banner is thus one of the most traditional, experienced and important makers of battery manufacturers. Banner batteries count among the original equipment fitted in any number of models of BMW, Mitsubishi, Skoda, VW, Liebherr, MAN, Kässbohrer and Jungheinrich. More than 90% of the company‘s turnover is generated by the 15 foreign subsidiaries and in 50 other European, African and Asian countries.
Innovation pave the way for the company‘s success. As early as 1978 Banner was the first European manufacturer to introduce a completely maintenance free battery and perfected the pure calcium technology in the Power Bull; the patented leak protection ACCUSAFE marks the universal Uni Bull while the new AGM battery Running Bull is the company‘s current contribution to taking care of the environment. The company‘s youngest innovation comes in shape of micro-hybrid vehicles with start/stop function and is used for example in BMWs.
Continuous research and development partnerships with large car manufacturers such as VW enable the family-run business and its branded products to frequently take top spot in independent tests.
