Over the past 21 years, R & J Batteries has become one of the largest battery importers and distributors in Australia.

Formed in 1995 by Ray Robson and John Webb, R & J Batteries started from truly humble beginnings. Having grown up together in the small rural town in Victoria, both Ray and John found work at a local battery company, Bond Batteries for some years before both Ray and John felt the time was right to head out on their own and R & J Batteries was formed.


Armed with nothing more than a strong work ethic and an entrepreneurial spirit, Ray and John invested every cent they had in a run-down shed in Ballarat, the original site is still the location of the company’s head office.


Our new store at 9A Angle Street, Onehunga, commenced operations in October 2017 and has been building traction ever since. Our distribution network will be initially based on the North Island but will service the whole of the New Zealand battery market.
