Commenting on the new look team, Lee Quinney said: “Banner Batteries has revitalised its presence within the UK aftermarket to re-establish its preeminent position, and it is our aim to maintain this impetus by supplying a first class service to our customer base. The team is extremely experienced and more than capable of delivering this, and they will be supported by a number of exciting marketing initiatives that we already have in the pipeline. One of the most fundamental and important messages that we intend to drive home is the fact that Banner batteries are fitted as original equipment on many of today’s leading cars, including those from Audi, Aston Martin, BMW, Caterham, Lotus, Mercedes, Morgan, Porsche, Seat, Skoda, Volvo and VW. They have an unparalleled original equipment pedigree and this is something that the sales team shall be readily looking to promote to our customers.”
