EXPORT CHAMPION
Banner breaks through the €300 million sales revenue barrier for the first time
Sales revenues increased by more than eleven per cent as compared to the previous year and amounted to €302 million, which was the highest figure in the company’s 80-year history. Banner is Austria’s sole battery manufacturer.

As Andreas Bawart, Banner’s co-owner and commercial CEO, explains: “Quality and reliability are two of our main success factors in the hotly contested battery market. This is borne out by our highly satisfactory figures and the fact that the BMW Group has opted for our EFB batteries is especially gratifying.” Banner batteries are also first fitted into numerous models from Audi, Caterpillar, Jungheinrich, Kässbohrer, Liebherr, Mercedes, Mitsubishi, Porsche, Seat, Volvo and VW.

 

Banner can reflect upon a successful 2017/18 financial year (1 April 2017 to 31 March 2018):

- Record sales revenues of €302 million from across all business areas
- 4.6 million starter batteries sold
- Growth due to the strong demand for starter batteries for start-stop vehicles
- Deliveries of EFB batteries (Enhanced Flooded Battery = cycle-resistant starter battery) to the BMW Group from the beginning of 2018
- Investments of more than €30 million at the Leonding location since 2015
- A focus on environmental protection: 100 per cent recycling quota

How does a start/stop system work?
Saves fuel at every red light, protects your wallet and is good for the environment.
The automatic start/stop switches the engine off and on again automatically, ...

... if you walk off or step on the clutch or brake during a stop. The savings potential: Depending on the driving situation, especially in city traffic, you use up to 0.8 l less fuel per 100 km!

 

The basic requirement: A particularly strong and cycle-proof start/stop battery that remains fully efficient even during frequent charging and discharging processes.

 

INNOVATIVE POWER FOR ENVIRONMENT-FRIENDLY MOBILITY.

Our top batteries for modern start/stop vehicles. Because Banner start/stop car batteries are real CO2 and fuel savers.


PDF With the highly specialised batteries of the Running Bull series, consisting of the Running Bull EFB*, Running Bull BackUp and Running Bull AGM**, Banner covers the entire energy supply segment in the start/stop vehicle area. Particularly high cyclical resistance makes the Running Bulls an ideal in-board power pack that safety masters the extreme loads created by frequent starts in micro-hybrid cars.

 

*EFB = Enhanced Flooded Battery, the cycle-resistant starter battery.

**AGM = Absorbent Glass Mat, which absorbs the battery acid and thus binds it in.

Banner Batterietipps
Battery-tip: Heat causes car batteries to sweat!
“Summertime blues” for batteries.
Those needing a new battery in winter have generally made a mistake in summer.

The problem is that high temperatures cause the battery water to evaporate to such as extent that the plates are literally left out to dry. The battery becomes weak and fragile.

Banner’s advice is to have the battery checked every time the vehicle goes to the repair shop.

 

Regular checks of the electrolyte level in wet batteries and if necessary, top up with demineralized or distilled water to
the maximum acid mark, or 15 mm above the upper plate edge. Never refill with acid!

 

In the case of high water losses, a specialist should check the governor voltage.

What does DSGVO mean?
Briefly simply General Data Protection Regulation.
The new EU Data Protection Ordinance (DSGVO) has been in force since 25 May 2018.

The main aim of the Basic Data Protection Ordinance is to regulate the handling of data uniformly throughout Europe.

 

The most important innovation of the DSGVO for website operators are the data protection regulations. Every website must contain a privacy policy. The data protection declaration is the text in which a company explains all data protection measures to its customers or visitors.

Buffalo Bull HIGH CURRENT - The NEW Banner cold start battery power.
Special machines and vehicles require ever-higher cold start current.
For example municipal vehicles such as sweepers or high-pressure rinsing vehicles, construction machinery, snow groomers and in the agricultural machinery sector - in tractors for woodworking and forestry use - with additional units such as the hydraulic wood splitter.

This is due to the high lag loads (e.g. in hydraulic units), which have to be dealt with during starting. The Buffalo Bull high current battery has been specifically developed to meet these requirements.

Buffalo Bull high current product/customer advantages in brief:
- Offer of two standard battery sizes (boxes A and B) with 1150 A Ah or 1400 A cold
  start current
- High vibration-resistance
- Calcium technology for minimal water consumption
- Maintenance-free under normal operating conditions
- Central degassing with integrated flame arrestor
- Add-ons for heightened product safety: short circuit protection, ESD plugs*
- Dimensions in accordance with EN 50342-4:2009

 

* ESD = electrostatic discharges are disruptive voltage breakdowns caused by major potential differences. These discharges (possibly visible due to sparks) cause brief, high electrical current and can lead to the ignition of flammable materials. It is precisely this that the ESD plugs prevent with absolute safety. 

 

All high current batteries are available from spring 2018 and therefore it is best to note this on your Banner list for future order dispositions.

 

Leading commercial vehicle manufacturers rely on the best Banner batteries of the Buffalo Bull series as original equipment.
BOMAG soil compactors, Caterpillar excavators, Kässbohrer Pistenbully, Kubota agricultural and construction machinery, Liebherr construction machinery, Lindner tractors, Mercedes trucks, Rammax construction machinery and Wacker/Neuson excavators.
