Mafini's Battelec head office
Combat Industrial Batteries and Chargers supplies industrial forklift power solutions along with new and refurbished TAB Traction tubular lead-acid and lithium-ion batteries and smart chargers to retail, manufacturing and distribution companies. Combat has a solid reputation in Ontario for delivering superior performance products, field service and in-shop repairs, battery reconditioning, on-site battery washing, preventative maintenance service, safety battery training, motive power consulting, rentals, and environmentally friendly scrap battery recycling.
The acquisition of Combat expands Mafini Group's offerings of TAB Traction industrial batteries and Bassi chargers into Ontario. "With this acquisition, we become the largest independent industrial battery manufacturer and supplier in Canada with over 85 employees, allowing us to better serve our customers in each province," says CEO Marcel Legace.
The Mafini Group is a Canadian company which also owns Battelec Inc., Bassi Labs, Batteries Drummond and New England Battery (Boston, USA).
The company has absorbed the employees who were working for Combat into its fold to be able to take on the larger operations and transactions to better serve its Ontario customer base.
