R&J Batteries Now in Bairnsdale Wilsons Batteries and Lubes is Now Powered by a New National Name We are thrilled to announce that R&J Batteries has officially opened its 23rd store in Bairnsdale, Victoria. Those local to Bairnsdale may be familiar with the trusty team at Wilsons Batteries and Lubes who have passed their business on to us. This acquisition marks an important milestone for R&J Batteries as we are now able to service communities in the East Gippsland region of Victoria and provide power solutions for all applications. Our association with Wilsons Batteries and Lubes’ founders, Rob and Jacinta Wilson, goes back 12 years. Prior to establishing Wilsons Batteries and Lubes, R&J Batteries had supplied batteries and oil to their previous business, RWB Industrial. When Rob and Jacinta sold RWB Industrial and opened Wilsons Batteries and Lubes four years ago, they decided to retain batteries and oil in their product offering and add an extensive range of filters, cleaning products and other hospitality products to the product range. “Although Wilsons Batteries and Lubes now have a new name – R&J Batteries – the quality of products and service remains the same”, said Co-founder and Manager Director of R&J Batteries, Ray Robson. World class brands such as ACDelco, Delkor, Fullriver, Motobatt and Fuchs that were previously available at Wilsons Batteries and Lubes will continue to be available at R&J Batteries Bairnsdale along with other brands such as Predator, RELiON, Hardcore, U.S Battery and BAE.

Coming from a strong automotive background, Jason quickly learned the ropes of his warehousing position and was promoted to a sales representative role. During his time as a sales representative, Jason learnt many facets of the business and built strong relationships with his customers and colleagues. When R&J Batteries opened its third branch in Tullamarine, Jason was given the opportunity to become Branch Manager. Jason happily accepted this opportunity and made the move from Ballarat to Melbourne. Jason’s hard work, commitment and loyalty to the company didn’t go unnoticed. Just after 5 years of being a Branch Manager, he was once again promoted and this time to Victoria State Manager. In the next 3 years, he was responsible for overseeing operations throughout the State of Victoria. Today, Jason is the General Manager of our Australian operations.
