EBT, who recently became a key strategic partner for Exide in the UK & Ireland, has tasked the pair with spearheading the company’s nationwide push with the prominent original equipment (OE) brand, which is renowned for its premium quality products and Carbon Boost 2.0 technology.
Brian Sanders and Scott Barker join EBT from Exide Technologies, and have cited the wealth of industry knowledge, depth of products and broad range of sectors in which the company is active, as reasons for joining the renowned battery distributor.
“Brian and Scott have both had long and distinguished aftermarket careers and consistently demonstrated their considerable battery knowledge,” said EBT’s MD, Steve Sheppard. “These factors, along with an infectious enthusiasm, have convinced us that alongside our existing team, they have what it takes to help us grow the presence of the Exide brand in the UK and Ireland.”
He added: “Besides development of the brand’s wide portfolio of products for multiple sector applications, Brian and Scott will add additional focus to our commitment to education and development of AGM and EFB batteries within the independent aftermarket, where despite considerable progress, helped in no small part by the introduction of our ‘One Box’ solution, challenges concerning the awareness of start/stop compatible batteries among both individual technicians and workshops in general, still persist.
“However, with these two valuable additions to the national sales team, we have a larger presence on the ground and an additional AGM and EFB original equipment option with which to fulfil the growing demand.”
