IRVING, Texas, Oct. 18, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Ecobat, the global leader in battery recycling, announced today that it has acquired Belgium-based industrial battery distributor, Emrol.
“The Emrol acquisition perfectly complements our current operations allowing Ecobat to serve our customers in Europe with more diverse solutions and services for energy storage,” said Ecobat Chief Executive Officer, Jimmy Herring. “As a leading distributor of motive power solutions used in industrial applications, this strategic acquisition of Emrol underscores our continued strategy to grow Ecobat Battery across Europe.”
