Tropical Battery Co Ltd6 Villa Rd Mandeville, Manchester Jamaica
Tropical Battery Co. Ltd. was founded in 1950 by Tex Williams, an American businessman. In 1967, Tropical Battery was purchased by the Melville family, who are still the owners today. Tropical Battery originally started as a manufacturer of lead acid storage batteries.
In the early 1990’s, Tropical Battery changed its business model from being a manufacturer to an importing and distribution company. Today, the company’s core business continues to be sales of automotive batteries, but is now complimented by the distribution of several local and world renowned automotive consumer product brands.
In recent years, Tropical Battery has seen renewed growth as a new generation of management aggressively seeks to establish Tropical Battery as the dominant force in automotive service parts distribution in Jamaica and the wider Caribbean.
Tropical Battery’s headquarters is located in Kingston, Jamaica with distribution centres located in Kingston and Montego Bay to serve the Jamaican market. These support the company’s six retail stores and hundreds of Tropical Battery authorized dealers across Jamaica.
In its newest foray, Tropical Battery is expanding the offering of its products to the wider Caribbean using Jamaica’s world class transshipment facilities. Read more......Read less
