Tungstone Car Batteries- are Re-born again after closure due to imports

 Tungstone batteries stand for quality ?

As a car battery dealer for most of my working life, I am not surprised that this famous battery name from the past has cropped up again. The Tungstone Car Batteries name comes from the period that included other well known battery names such as Crompton  and indeed Oldham , who had a TV advert, which gave the battery an unforgettable slogan, “I Told,em Oldham”, probably best remembered by us older people. Tungstone Car Batteries

The difference now is that in the seventies they  were made in the UK, and now the batteries are imported and use the Tungstone Car Batteries name and logo. This came about because of a battle that took place between two of the largest battery wholesalers in the UK. Manbat and UKB are both from the Manchester area originally, and like the two football teams “City and United”, the companies are both arch rivals.

The two companies were in a bit of a battle to buy the Lucas battery name and logo, from a battery company that went into liquidation, located in Corby, in the Midlands area of the UK. I do not know the ins and outs of the different bids and how much the winners paid, but Manbat came away as winners and of course the famous name of Lucas batteries. Lucas no longer make car batteries and the products are sourced from battery manufacturers all over Europe, but the premium range of batteries are made by Johnson controls the same company that make Bosch and Varta batteries, and are of a very good pedigree.

In my opinion UKB were very disappointed that they were unable to acquire the Lucas brand name and so searched for the availability of some of the other battery brand names. They were able to identify the names that were up for sale and purchased the three names of Tungstone, Oldham and Crompton batteries, adding them to their own Platinum battery series. We at Batteriesontheweb  have now become Tungstone battery dealers in the West Yorkshire area of the UK and are very proud to be associated with this great name.

Tungstone Car Batteries bought direct

Eric Roberts remembers when he used to travel to Market Harborough and was able to buy a minimum of 100 Tungstone Car Batteries in a mixed order, my van was nearly touching the ground with the weight, but because we bought direct from the manufacturers we were able to make good profits, not like today when we only make a small profit, because we have to buy from the middle man as all the battery makers have moved out of the UK.

017 Tungstone Batteries-and Lucas Car batteries are back again

017 Tungstone Batteries revived again here in the UK

One of trends in the automotive business in the UK is the revival of old product brands. In the last six years we have seen brands resurrected (a good word at Easter time?) such as the

The Lucas name was sold off and re-branded by Johnson Controls.

Lucas brand.

There has been an increasing degree of partnership with Japanese corporations. Such as with Sumitomo on car-body systems, or Yuasa Battery Company. In response to the growing likelihood that Japanese components firms will make inroads into the European market as deeply as they already have in the United States. Lucas Automotive have had  success in 1989 in attracting orders. From BMW and Saab-Scania for fuel injection systems was an indication of its ability to compete directly in Europe… http://www.fundinguniverse.com/company-histories/lucas-industries-plc-history/

As we can see in this, history of the Lucas company Lucas were doing cross country deals in the expanding car component sector. Including a deal that was struck with Yuasa batteries of Japan. These batteries went under the Lucas batteries brand name. They were imported with many battery part numbers that were coming into the UK and the USA that were unfamiliar to the British battery manufacturers

Yuasa batteries actually started producing batteries in the USA in 1979. Producing car and AGM batteries.In 1996 he great Lucas empire merged with the American company Varity Corporation and the UK part of the company.

Initially the Lucas name was used on Elta’s existing product of automotive light bulbs but has been gradually expanded to cover much the same range as the original Lucas company- light units, batteries, switches and controls, ignition components, re manufactured starter motors and alternators, wiper blades and electrical accessories. Operations and manufacturing take place at several locations in the UK as well as overseas”… http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LucasVarity

This is the stage that the Lucas battery label in the famous green and white Lucas colours was sold off to a British Battery company in the Midlands.

017 Tungstone Batteries was also revamped in the same way.

This is a similar story but in a smaller scale. Tungstone  were started In the early 1960s London Merchant Securities bought the business from the Haddon family and eventually Tungstone became part of the giant Hawker Siddeley Group.

By the early 1980s 017 Tungstone Batteries were one of the largest battery manufacturers in the country, producing more than 700,000 new ones every year.

However due to competition the production of car batteries had to stop and the company laid off thousands of staff. The 017 Tungstone Batteries name has been

The name has been revived now in recent times by Manchester based battery wholesaler UK Batteries Ltd who have set up a dealer network her in the UK. Batteriesontheweb.co.uk are one of these dealers covering the Yorkshire region of the UK.

Tungstone Batteries Yorkshire dealer- Top batteries available again in West Yorkshire

Old favourite Tungstone Batteries Yorkshire dealer on sale again.

Eric Roberts from www.batteriesontheweb.co.uk is pleased to announce that his company will be the Tungstone Batteries Yorkshire dealer agents for the West Yorkshire region, based in their HalifaxUK, HQ.

The original Tungstone battery was produced in Market Harborough, at their factory in Lathkill street and were the towns largest employee. I remember the factory very well as I used to travel there to collect stock. Those were the days when the battery manufacturers would supply the smaller independent companies, in smaller amounts now all the true British companies have moved abroad and we have to buy our batteries in containers.

The original Tungstone company started out making lead type(for type-writers)  and the word Tungstone came from a walking stick, the wood that it was made of was very hard, the wood was as strong as the metal Tungstone and so the name was registered as Tungstone.

Changes began to happen in the company and in the 1920s the company started to make its first lead acid batteries as another option. During the second world war the company started to employ women for the first time and the company made batteries for the Airforce and truck batteries towards the war effort.

The company was sold in the 1960s to part of the Hawker-Siddley Group and soon became the largest battery maker in Britain. This is the time that I started working for National tyres and the Tungstone batteries were sold to the nationwide company at each of their depots. This was the first time I would have to go on a battery course, to a pub near York and batteries have stuck with me ever since. We later switched to Crompton batteries but that’s another story.

Tungstone Batteries Yorkshire dealer and cheap battery imports

Tungstone batteries are no longer made in the UK, but the same high quality of manufacturing and the materials used have retained this once very popular brand of batteries status in the battery world. New style Tungstone batteries are very similar to the old style back in the 1970’s and 80’s, which are now only remembered by the older generations, but are soon to be revamped. Tungstone Batteries Yorkshire dealer

The company started to struggle against the plague that threatened many of our manufacturing bases that was “foreign imports”, especially China, this eventually forced the ailing battery company to lay off all it,s 180 workers and the Tungstone batteries company was forced to close.

The Tungstone label was then bought by a Manchester company called U.K.Batteries and I have now been re-united with the famous brand of TUNGSTONE BATTERIES.

Batteriesontheweb then became the Tungstone Batteries Yorkshire dealer, and have supplied our customers with this excellent product ever since we became the Tungstone Batteries Yorkshire dealer.
