The Original Equipment Suppliers Aftermarket Association (OESAA) has announced that battery specialist VARTA is the latest OE manufacturer to join its ranks.


Speaking about the news, OESAA Chairman, Nigel Morgan, commented, “We really are delighted that VARTA Batteries have joined our organisation, and feel this adds weight to our membership. VARTA batteries have long been recognised for their exceptional OE pedigree, so it makes complete sense. We’re looking forward to collaborating with them as part of the group, and joining forces with us in our drive to support the independent aftermarket.”

Technical Sales Manager at VARTA, Andy Cook, said, “Clarios, the Company behind the VARTA brand, are the largest battery manufacturer in the world, and that status naturally comes with longstanding and successful OE partnerships on a global basis, so joining OESSA makes perfect sense for us. Our new membership will help us support the independent garage further, especially in the area of new technology, where we have battery expertise on features like start-stop, where 8 out of 10 start-stop cars fitted with an AGM technology battery, is one of ours”.

Andy added, “Our strategy is in line with everything they represent; fitting the highest quality OE parts to customers’ vehicles”.

The OESSA team have also put together interactive ‘COVID-19 awareness’ training session and assessment based on industry guidelines produced by the leading trade organisations. The team at VARTA are urging garage owners and staff to take part in this free training, which comes with a poster download for display in their receptions, to provide peace of mind to their customers.
