Manufacturing

As one of the leading battery manufacturers and battery companies, AutoX develops and manufactures batteries that deliver high performance, especially in tough African conditions. Based on robust battery technology, AutoX has built a successful track record of consistent performance and value for money.

Since 1954, we have developed our production processes and upgraded our manufacturing facility to meet increasing market demands at the highest battery standards possible. We use high-grade lead alloys and specialised additives with active ingredients developed by AutoX. Our paste-mixing methods are controlled in such a way that it improves stability during the manufacturing process and enhances consistency from one batch to the next. We have customised our curing processes and apply patented moulding processes for lead straps that deliver lightweight but highly robust current connectors.

Through innovations such as these, AutoX has become one of the foremost battery suppliers, ensuring our batteries meet the demands of the most extreme conditions.

While the product is continuously monitored throughout the fabrication process, we apply sophisticated testing procedures to ensure the quality of each battery before it leaves the factory. AutoX batteries consistently outperform international specified standards for lead-acid batteries.

AutoX’s manufacturing facility was the first battery production plant in Africa to achieve ISO 9001 quality management accreditation. Furthermore, our manufacturing facility is certified according to multiple national and international standards, including ISO 45001:2018 (Health and Safety Management System), ISO 14001:2015 (Environmental Management System) and IATF 16949:2016 (Quality Management System), while AutoX branded products carry the SABS Mark of Approval, i.e. SANS2:2013. The company is currently in the implementation phase of ISO 50 001:2018 for Energy Management.
