Overview

Aztec is the official South African agent for NorthStar batteries. The NorthStar Battery Company manufactures highly advanced sealed (VRLA AGM) lead-acid batteries for critical power applications in the telecom, UPS, mining and military markets.

NorthStar Specifications and Performance Tables

NorthStar is one of only two battery manufacturers in the world which utilise high quality pure lead tin alloy in their batteries as opposed to the cheaper and lesser quality lead calcium as found in most other lead-acid batteries.

NorthStar’s environmentally friendly manufacturing plant is located in the USA, where strict environmental and quality standards are adhered to. The plant uses state-of-the-art manufacturing and processing equipment and is able to record every step of a product’s production cycle.

Formed by a leading team of international battery engineers with 100 years collective experience in the design and manufacture of standby sealed lead-acid batteries, NorthStar is today registered to both ISO-9001 and ISO-14001.

NorthStar’s quality of design and manufacture is unsurpassed and the company thus is without a doubt the world’s leading manufacturer of premium quality sealed lead-acid batteries.
