Charles Hurst Group appointed Banner Distributor in Belfast
Banner Batteries has appointed the Charles Hurst Group as official distributor in Belfast in order to further develop its already established presence in Belfast.
Commenting on the newly-established association with Banner Batteries, Cyril Morrison, Parts Manager at Charles Hurst Group, said: “We set our sights on dealing with a manufacturer that had an established and prominent OE pedigree and one that could deliver on quality. As a result, and having looked at a number of possibilities, it was Banner Batteries that interested us most. Not only do they supply their batteries as original equipment to many of today’s leading car and CV manufacturers, our research clearly demonstrated that their products are proven in terms of their performance. We are therefore optimistic that their products will be well received across our customer base.”
On the new product front, and with a third of group sales volume emanating from environmental friendly start-stop batteries, Banner Batteries is extending its Running Bull EFB product offering with the launch of three new aftermarket 12V part numbers. And Charles Hurst Group will be looking to promote the new-to-range batteries across Belfast.
Available with immediate effect and providing comprehensive coverage of Ford vehicles with start-stop systems are two type number Running Bull EFBs with 65 and 75Ah rated capacities respectively.
And scheduled to be introduced to coincide with the impending battery season is an additional Running Bull EFB battery rated at 80Ah that is suitable for a raft of models from leading manufacturers such as Audi, VW and Skoda.
