In September 2012 Univercell was purchased by Aceon Group.
Univercell Battery Co. Ltd was established in 1993 by a group of managers from Ever Ready Special Batteries in Telford, U.K. When it became known that ERSB was to be closed down, the team were able to negotiate a long term agreement to supply Ever Ready with a range of Zinc Carbon batteries which were still required by Ever Ready. This was achieved against stiff competition from manufacturers in the Far East.
We have expanded our product range to cover all types of batteries including made-to-order special battery packs. We are able to supply complex battery designs including Intrinsically Safe, encapsulated cells, and special connectors. Now, in 2011, our customer base runs to over 400 customers. Each one is treated as our most important customer!
