Based in Manchester, Shield Batteries North West Ltd are part of the Shield Batteries group, renowned manufacturers and distributors of lead acid batteries across the UK.

Shield Batteries North West was launched in 2008 following an acquisition of Shepherd and Castlefield Batteries. Shepherds already had an established history in the marketplace having been founded back in 1928. We now distribute across the whole of the North of England and North Wales to a wide and diverse customer base. Our product range includes:

  • Car and commercial batteries including Duracell’s automotive range
  • Agricultural and plant batteries
  • Semi traction batteries
  • Deep cycle batteries
  • Marine and leisure batteries
  • Motorcycle and motorsport batteries
  • AGM and GEL batteries
  • Hard rubber batteries for classic and vintage cars
  • Electric vehicle batteries
  • Fire and security batteries
  • Rail batteries

In fact, if you need any kind of specialist battery for plant hire, floor cleaning, agricultural, recreational, car, bus, coach, motorcycle or standby power, Shield Batteries North West will provide it.

The batteries we provide for all of these industries are some of the best known brands in the industry. This includes Katana automotive and commercial batteries by Yuasa, one of the largest original equipment manufacturers in the world. Our Valve Regulated Lead Acid (VRLA) and UPS range of batteries are manufactured by Sterling, a brand known for its high standards.

In 2013 we were also appointed distributors of Duracell’s new range of automotive batteries which includes new technologies like EFB and advanced AGM.

We are the UK distributors for Crown Batteries, whose semi traction batteries are second to none in terms of performance levels and service life. We’re also delighted to be distributors of the Odyssey Extreme range, whose revolutionary manufacturing process provides batteries with more than twice the power of conventional batteries.

Shield Batteries are probably best known for being one of the only manufacturers of batteries in the UK, and our hard rubber batteries are popular with classic car enthusiasts.
