Manufacturing

Production takes place in Port Elizabeth where it all started for Willard Batteries in 1954. The factory in Port Elizabeth still reflects the true South African spirit of combining imported state of the art technology with good old South African ingenuity and know-how, producing world class batteries efficiently and with passion and pride.

Powertech Batteries attained a unique position in the domestic battery manufacturing arena by becoming the first South African manufacturer to be awarded the Quality Management System 0157 Part II listing for the automotive production facility, and later the industrial operation. In June 1988 this was changed to the SABS ISO 9002 quality accreditation, to be followed by all the important quality ratings, including the  ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 approvals, the Ford Q101 rating, the VDA6 rating, and the ISO/TS 16949:001 rating.
