Manbat – Approved Supplier to Group Auto Union
Manbat has become an approved supplier of batteries to automotive buying group Group Auto Union (UK). As part of the agreement, the company, the UK’s largest battery distributor, will offer GAU distributors the high profile Numax and Varta brands of batteries, which both offer 99 per cent coverage of UK car parc.
GAU recognised Manbat for its excellent sales support package, which encompasses high quality cataloguing, point of sale, extensive availability and range of product.
The Numax brand consists of more than 200 references and offers a wide range of batteries that services a number of sectors such as car, motorcycle, leisure, marine, industrial and mobility.
Manbat is also the largest distributor in the UK automotive aftermarket of the Varta brand of batteries, which features eight different product ranges, including Blue Dynamic Silver and AGM Ultra Dynamic.
Commenting on the new agreement with GAU, Roger Pemberton, Manbat managing director, said: “Our entire sales package is centred around our support and service to customers and we are delighted to have been appointed approved supplier to GAU, which is arguably one of the largest buying groups in the UK. With access to high profile brands in Numax and Varta, along with our next day delivery service to anywhere in the UK, GAU distributors have access to an attractive proposition from Manbat and we will be working with them to ensure that they increase their sales of batteries.”
