Powering the future since 1910
Having now surpassed our 100th UK manufacturing year, Shield Batteries are one of the battery industries ‘true professionals’, with a wealth of experience, expertise, and success matched by few other companies.
Being highly skilled in manufacturing with a long proven track record, Shield Batteries are renowned for delivering the ultimate quality and performance in every battery supplied. To this day, we are trusted in delivering what our customers deserve by using only the best components available to us.
Founded in 1910 in London, the company set out by producing accumulator type batteries then in glass jars. Manufacturing progressed throughout the 1st and 2nd World Wars and then moved onto the production of hard rubber batteries.
Due to the growth and expansion of the business, the company moved to Bishop’s Stortford where the company’s headquarters and manufacturing remains today.
Due to manufacturing limitations in the UK, we are proud of our long partnership with REEM Batteries from Oman who support us with the best battery technology available, in the automotive market. Shield batteries are not only renowned as manufacturers, but also distributors of batteries into specialist markets. Find out more
