EBT opens new southwest logistics hub
As a further example of its on going expansion, ECOBAT Battery Technologies (EBT), formerly Manbat, has moved into a new, purpose built 15,000 sq.ft. facility, to allow it to satisfy the increasing demand for its range of premium quality batteries and charging solutions across its multiple business sectors, but particularly for the needs of its fast growing established automotive and commercial vehicle customer base.
Over the years, Bristol has been central to the company’s sustained growth and the city has long been the site for one of its busiest regional hubs, which has spearheaded many of its business developments, from the early introduction of leisure products, to its move into the industrial sector.
“From both a geographical and corporate perspective, our Bristol based operation has been very important to the growth of the business as a whole,” said an EBT spokesman, “which is why we needed to move to a property that will allow the business to continue to develop and provide the support our valued customers need and deserve, over the next phase of the company’s history.
“Under our EBT branding, which was officially unveiled last September at Automechanika Frankfurt and with the re-energised Lucas brand opening more doors both here and abroad, operating from a modern and well designed hub allows us to provide the logistical support our customers need and to carry that out on the most efficient basis possible. This new facility enables us to meet these twin objectives, which is great news for our customers and the business.”
In addition to its new regional hub, EBT is beginning to roll out its new branding on its fleet of delivery vehicles, which is another extremely beneficial string to EBT’s wide ranging, customer focused bow. “Having our own fleet of vehicles ensures we are able to deliver the products our customers need, when they need them,” the spokesman continued, “which is an essential part of our customer focused approach to business. In their latest guise, the fleet also do a great job of raising awareness of our pan-European branding and our power of partnership business ethos.”
