Clarios operates as a global energy storage business generating $8 billion in revenues with more than 16,000 employees, 56 facilities worldwide and 130 years of expertise. Clarios is a leader in vehicle battery technologies – producing one-third of the automotive industry’s total output per year – while more aggressively exploring ways to meet the fast-growing energy storage needs of tomorrow.

Clarios will continue to provide the highest quality products and service to the world’s leading companies and brands. These customers rely on Clarios to deliver smart battery technologies that leverage the company’s unique mix of insights, applied engineering and superior product design.

Battery technology has become increasingly important because today’s commercial and domestic vehicles house more than a hundred electrified devices to comply with growing industry regulations and to support consumer demands for safety, fuel economy, comfort and sustainability.

In addition, with the growing shift toward more autonomous vehicles, advanced safety features will become even more critical, requiring a proven, reliable energy storage solution.

Clarios will build on decades of leadership in the circular economy where it designs, builds, recovers and recycles batteries to help create a more efficient and sustainable approach to energy storage.

Clarios batteries are designed and made so up to 99% of the materials can be recovered and reused in the new batteries it makes. Through innovative collaboration with the company’s customers and partners, Clarios has pioneered a closed-loop collection system that is a model for the circular economy that it continues to share across the globe.

Our full range of lead-acid and lithium-ion battery technology powers nearly every type of vehicle for our customers, including the range of heavy-duty commercial mining vehicles.

Vehicle batteries for industrial and commercial applications

Clarios supplies starting, lighting, igniting (SLI) batteries, enhanced flooded batteries (EFB) and absorbent glass mat (AGM) batteries to a wide range of automotive manufacturers.
