Battery maker GS Yuasa celebrates 40 years of lead-acid production in Wales

GS Yuasa Battery Manufacturing UK is celebrating 40 years of lead-acid battery making in South Wales.

Established in 1981, the company has produced more than 85 million batteries at their Ebbw Vale production facility.

More than 60% of sales are exported, mainly within Europe.

The first plant was a single, 4,700m² factory, but the site has since grown to more than 27,000m² as additional factories were built in 1987, 1988 and 1994. 

Initially established as Yuasa Battery UK, the company name changed to GS Yuasa Battery Manufacturing UK Ltd in 2017 as part of the global roll out of the parent company name from Japan.
