Exide to carry Australian Made logo on products


Exide Technologies, a global leader in stored electrical energy solutions and a leading manufacturer of automotive batteries in Australia, has joined a growing number of local manufacturers carrying the Australian Made logo on its products.

Exide was welcomed as a licensee at a recent ceremony at its facility in Adelaide.

“Local manufacturing plays a pivotal role in our economy, and we’re thrilled to welcome Exide as a licensed user of the Australian Made, Australian Grown logo, said Ian Harrison, Chief Executive of the Australian Made, Australian Grown Campaign.

“Research shows that shoppers want to buy locally made, so to see Exide promote its products as Australian is not only a smart move by Exide, but also a great help for shoppers,” said Mr Harrison.

Exide Technologies is one of the largest battery suppliers to vehicle manufacturers based in Australia, and the technology exchange enables Exide to remain at the forefront of meeting the needs of new vehicles. This, in turn, is supported by Exide's global connections with vehicle manufacturers around the world to ensure the latest technologies are employed to power the vehicles of the future.

Exide Technologies manufactures product for transportation applications at their facility in Elizabeth, SA and has a battery recycling facility in Wellington, NZ.

Both Exide and Marshall branded products will carry the Australian Made logo. 

Exide joins more than 1650 businesses, which use the logo on more than 10,000 products.
