With disruption to many manufacturing supply chains due to COVID-19, Battery Energy has avoided lengthy delays.
The COVID-19 crisis has thrown a spotlight on Australia’s manufacturing capabilities with disruption catching numerous companies off-guard. Many battery suppliers in Australia are facing supply chain issues due to closed borders, travel bans and export restrictions. New barriers to trade have emerged rapidly and have laid bare Australia's over-reliance on supply chains internationally and most of all out of China .
At Battery Energy, our supply chain strategy has resilience built into it. Although we have our dual production facility in China we have always maintained our Australian plant and capability, this has ensured production is ongoing locally and not impacted and it is very much business as usual.
Our strategy has meant we have sufficient stock of most GEL products and capability in-country allowing us to provide peace of mind to our customers. Our ability to continue to deliver allows us to provide an unparalleled level of support for our customers while avoiding project delays or increased costs. This is especially important when providing essential services.
After evaluating our product lines in these uncertain times we are looking into expanding a wider range of batteries locally. Additionally our new Battery research and development laboratory is taking shape after significant investment and our DC Power Configuration Center is looking to double in size.
We believe in Australian manufacturing. To find out more about our please contact us.
