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.
