GNB Industrial Power is a vital part of the Exide Technologies Group, one of the world's largest battery manufacturers, and we have more than 120 years' experience with battery development. The company was founded in 1888 under the name Electric Storage Battery Company, and since then we have expanded and changed name several times.

GNB is an abbreviation of the name Gould National Batteries - a recognised company name under which Exide has sold batteries for many years in the USA and Asia.
