Muscat: DRIVEX batteries, sold under the EINT Automotive umbrella, have been well-received in the Oman market due to their high performance, reliability and cost-effectiveness. DRIVEX is manufactured by the world leader in battery manufacturing-Johnson Controls in their state of the art facility in Germany and Spain.

Owing to its European manufacturers, DRIVEX therefore remains unaffected by the Korean anti-dumping rule which was begun in an attempt to protect the locally made batteries. Since the Korean-made batteries were relatively low in price and thus being opted for as a cheaper option, the GCC-Bureau of Technical Secretariat for Anti Injurious Practices in International Trade made an announcement in its official gazette in accordance with the GCC Common Law of Anti-Dumping, Countervailing Measures and its Safeguards, and its Regulations (Amended), stating that there would be an imposition of definitive anti-dumping duties against the GCC imports of electric lead-acid accumulators of capacity of 35 up to 115 amperes, whether or not rectangular (including square) of a kind used for starting piston engines (Automotive Batteries), originating in or exported from the Republic of Korea.

“DRIVEX batteries therefore will be available at the same price as before and the rule will not affect this internationally acclaimed brand,” said Mr. Shajahan Azeez, Business Head, EINT Automotive – PLB Division. “DRIVEX invests extensively to ensure that its batteries are safe, reliable and environment-friendly while simultaneously making sure that its related costs stay in an acceptable margin.”

Made in Europe, DRIVEX Batteries can boast of having an extensive range of batteries. The batteries for heavy commercial applications are made in Germany where the OE batteries for MAN are also manufactured. Batteries that specialize for passenger cars come exclusively manufactured from Spain. DRIVEX batteries are a product of one of the finest, most technically advanced and well-experienced battery manufacturers in the world. Confident of its product, the DRIVEX offers an 18 months warranty period in Oman. It also offers up to 15 months shelf life and explosion-proof top lid.
