Learn about the history of BATCAR’s establishment and development over the years.
The origins of the BATCAR company date back to 1989, when two graduates of the Zielona Góra University of Technology founded a service plant producing car batteries in the adapted lowest floor of a single-family house. It was the assembly of batteries from ready-made components and their formation. The shortage of batteries on the market and the good quality of the products offered resulted in the rapid development of the company, which in turn enabled the employment of new employees and the commencement of the construction of a new headquarters and warehouse of the company.
Two years later, the company operated under the name BATCAR™.
Since 1993, the company’s headquarters has been located in Zielona Góra at 6 Rumakowa Street. In the meantime, the company’s owners decided to build warehouses with a modern loading bay in a small town near Kożuchów.
Since 1995, the company has been participating in the International Automotive Fair in Poznań. The contacts established at the fair prompted the company’s owners to direct their plans for further development towards the Fast Car Service, combined with the distribution of automotive parts.
In 1996, the company purchased the AKUM battery wholesaler in Gorzów Wlkp. and opened a branch there dealing with the distribution of batteries in the former Gorzów Voivodeship.
In 2001, in mid-May, the construction of a four-station service center equipped with modern equipment and workshop tools necessary to carry out repairs of passenger cars and delivery vans began. The facility was launched in October of the same year. The core business of the service is tire installation and replacement, suspension and brake repairs, oil changes and battery sales.
In 2002, the company owners opened a branch in Jawor, dealing in wholesale and retail sales of batteries. The branch’s operating area is the Lower Silesian Voivodeship.
In 2005, the workshop was expanded to 6 stations. In the same year. the company has implemented and continues to maintain a quality management system consistent with the requirements of the EN ISO 9001:2001 standard. Due to the constant and systematic development and improvement of the company’s competitiveness on the local and regional market, the company’s owners decided on further development plans, namely the creation of new company branches.
Stable development and modern views of the owners on running the company were rewarded with, among others, the Business Gazelle 2006 and 2007 award and seventh place in the Company Ranking.
In 2007, a new branch was established in Nowa Sól and Ostrów Wielkopolski. In 2007, the owners decided to open new branches in the east of the country, in Lublin and Sokołów Podlaski.
The company obtained funding for the planned investment from the Lubusz regional operational program for 2007-2013.
Further development of the company led to the opening of branches in Grudziądz and Bielsko-Biała in 2008. Taking into account the current experience on the market and intensive development in recent years, the company’s management decided to start the construction of an Intelligent Logistics Center – a warehouse for batteries and other industrial products, based on the idea of high storage, managed by an innovative, flexible IT system.
