Exide Technologies has formed a partnership with Comab, a Brazilian motive and network power battery service provider, to manufacture and service motive power industrial batteries.
Production and assembly of the batteries will take place at Comab’s facility near São Paulo. Exide will supply the materials, processes and technology for production; Comab will oversee facilities, local management and after sales service support.
"This expanded relationship will allow us to participate in a very dynamic and growing marketplace, to provide products and service solutions to many of our global (original equipment manufacturing) customers who are operating there, and to pursue new opportunities." Exide Americas’ president Paul Hirt said in a statement.
The batteries will primarily be sold to the motive power industry in Brazil.
