Manbat, under the ECOBAT European Battery Distribution umbrella, will be exhibiting alongside Manbat France, a subsidiary company that was acquired by the group in January 2014, to promote its popular Numax range of batteries and accessories.
Launched in 2002 to coincide with Manbat’s 50th anniversary, Numax is now a significant player in the automotive aftermarket and the dominant brand in the UK’s leisure sector.
Its introduction into the French market, which was made at EQUIP AUTO ’13 has been warmly received and in tandem with the acquisition, has allowed the brand to grow sales rapidly across all sectors – automotive, CV, leisure and motorcycle – and increase its trade awareness throughout the country.
In common with the UK, independent workshops in France are encountering more vehicles fitted with a Start-Stop system, which means they need the appropriate replacement EFB/AGM batteries and reset tools to service them. Therefore, taking centre stage on stand 6N 075 will be a range of Numax Start-Stop batteries and the ‘Connect + Reset’ battery validation tool.
