Yuasa Battery Europe Ltd is a subsidiary of the world renowned GS Yuasa Corporation, one of the world’s largest battery manufacturers and a global leader in quality and innovation.
The GS Yuasa Group consists of 65 subsidiaries and 33 affiliates in countries throughout the world. For over 100 years, the GS Yuasa Group has continually contributed to economic development and the improvement of living standards through the development and manufacture of batteries, power supply systems and lighting equipment. We are a major force in the market as one of the world’s leading manufacturers of automotive and motorcycle batteries. As a supplier of high-performance power supply systems, we help ensure the reliability of social infrastructure.
The GS Yuasa Group was formed in 2004 following a merger between the Japan Storage Battery Co. Ltd and the Yuasa Corporation. Based in Kyoto Japan, GS Yuasa are a major force in the market as a leading manufacturer of next generation energy systems encompassing not only vehicle use, but also a wide range of fields, from deep sea to aerospace, to meet increasingly sophisticated needs.
GS Yuasa’s technology and core products are found in every sphere:
• Standby Power Systems
• Industrial Power Supply systems
• Aeronautical & Aerospace Industries
• Lighting & Infrastructure
• Marine Research & Exploration
GS Yuasa was established in 2004 as a joint venture between two battery super powers – GS and Yuasa, both with a long history of development and growth.
Today GS Yuasa leads the world with innovative power solutions ranging from sophisticated technology powering the International Space Station and the manned research submersible “the Shinkai6500”, to state of the art batteries used in automobiles, motorcycles, marine, rail and aviation applications including the state-of-the-art Boeing 787 Dreamliner. GS Yuasa also utilises this same technology in it’s cutting-edge consumer and industrial use batteries and backup power systems.
GS Yuasa is leading the way into the environmental age with an increased focus on clean energy and the development of next-generation batteries such as safe, high-performance lithium-ion batteries and nickel-metal hydride batteries for use in hybrid and electric vehicles.
Deep Sea Exploration
GS Yuasa provides the manned research submersible, the Shinkai6500, with its primary power source: compact, sophisticated batteries capable of resisting the extreme water pressure of the deep sea.
GS Yuasa’s lithium-ion batteries installed in rubber tire trains eliminate the need for overhead wires. These trains can run solely on battery power.
GS Yuasa’s innovations are helping mankind achieve its dream of space exploration by providing the advanced technology needed to survive the harsh environment of outer space – GS Yuasa batteries play a crucial role in the power supply system for the International Space Station.
Throughout its long history, GS Yuasa has worked to create innovative technology and it is this commitment which serves as the foundation for GS Yuasa’s continuing efforts to explore new possibilities in the field of electrical energy under the corporate vision of “Innovation and Growth”.
Responding to today’s increasingly sophisticated needs our extensive range of next generation energy system lithium-ion batteries encompasses not only vehicle use but also products in a wide range of fields, from deep sea to aerospace, to meet the ever more sophisticated needs of the times. Throughout its long history, the GS Yuasa Group has worked to create innovative technology. This commitment serves as the foundation for our continuing efforts to explore new possibilities in the field of electrical energy under a corporate vision expressed in the words “ Innovation and Growth.”
