A new look for Battery Centre in Maritzburg
SOUTH Africa’s most trusted battery specialists, Battery Centre, has unveiled its new look, revolutionising the next step in the brand’s journey.
The extensive rebranding is being rolled out nationwide, building on the company’s brand identity and proud South African heritage.
Since its inception in 1969, Battery Centre has evolved into a fully-fledged battery retail powerhouse, fuelling industries with innovative technology and placing the customer at the heart of the company.
The first Battery Centre opened its doors in Bloemfontein in 1969 to distribute batteries manufactured by First National Battery.
By adding Battery Centre to the family decades ago, First National Battery created the first battery retail powerhouse on the continent. The brand became so popular it was franchised in 1976. Today, there are 150 Battery Centres nationwide.
“We have come a long way since we first opened our doors in Bloemfontein nearly 50 years ago,” said Andrew Webb, marketing director. “Being the largest battery fitment powerhouse with more than 150 stores nationwide, we needed our brand identity to take us to the next level without detracting from our rich, iconic heritage.”
The brand’s new look is noticeably different from competitors, in the same way that its values are markedly different from the industry in which it operates.
