Commenting from a UK perspective, Country Manager, Lee Quinney added: “Whilst not impacting directly on our UK operation, this is obviously fantastic news for Banner to kick-start 2021, and we intend to ensure that the message resonates across our customer base, both live and prospective. Indeed not unlike Banner’s UK position, which itself continues to gain momentum, this latest development swerve to support Banner’s growing status as a truly global supplier of batteries and battery accessories.”
