For 60 years Supac has been actively involved in the manufacture and distribution of lead acid batteries for the automotive industry, and more recently in the distribution of specialist batteries for the leisure, marine, mobility, security, and medical sectors.
Supac was founded by South Wales, electrical engineer Hadyn Morgan, who responded to the demand of the local community after World War II shortages. Initially charging, servicing and replating old batteries, the company soon moved into the manufacture of new batteries.
