About – Rahimafrooz


Rahimafrooz was founded in 1954 as a pioneer in the Bangladeshi battery industry. Rahimafrooz Storage Power Business (RSPB) is the core business of the Group, with leadership in the local and some international markets. As the leading supplier of lead acid batteries in Bangladesh with the latest technology of batteries, RSPB serves the most extensive network of dealers and retailers. It is the only company that has batteries to offer for every segment in the industry. RSPB produces a complete range of products ranging from 2.5 Ah to 3000 Ah, for applications primarily in Automotive, Inverters, Solar, Marine, Traction and Telecoms. With exports starting in 1992, GLOBATT, VOLTA, IGNUS, and DELTA have taken RSPB across global frontiers. RSPB enjoys a presence in over 70+ global markets, with domination in some key APAC, SAARC, and Middle Eastern markets. Rahimafrooz had pioneered in bringing the conventional Dry Charge technology in automotive and Industrial in the 1960s, followed by Maintenance Free (MF) technology in 2009. RSPB continues to be the only MF battery manufacturer in Bangladesh and has continued to hold its pioneering position through recent technological developments including the Enhanced Flooded Batteries (EFB) for Start-Stop, OPzV for Industrial, and the completely sealed Valve Regulated Lead Acid (VRLA) batteries for both starting and deep cycle applications.

Our Values

Manufacturing Facilities

We use Canadian based Cominco line’s expanded grid technology to produce negative grids for our MF/SMF batteries. We use only superior quality lead calcium alloy to produce the grids, which are pasted using Super MAC machine of USA. After pasting, plates are sent to vacuum dryer for surface drying and stacking for next processing.

Our modernized COS (Cast –On- Strap) machine has four working stations with rotary table which speeds up the assembly process and ensures high quality group building. This automated machine is capable to handle COS for both central lug and lateral lug position and can manage the variations of strap thickness. It ensures stronger strap than the thinner gas-burnt conventional group building and reduce the lever action movement resulting from the road shock.

Our pressure die casting machine ensures flawless & high-pressure casted spine for Industrial battery. It also makes sure of high operational life using superfine void-free grain structure under the quick rate of discharge. Our specialized paste recipe facilitates high charge acceptance and reduces recharging time.

Our injection molding facilities produce all the major containers required to assemble batteries. Superior quality of Polypropylene (PP) granules from Lyondell Basell, Korea and Exxon Mobil, Singapore are used as raw material. Each injection machine is operated by advanced PLC and comes with individual cooling facility for molds.

The assembled batteries are taken to formation tanks to charge the batteries in circulating water cooling system. We use advanced current transducers for the DC current to ensure high stability of battery formation for each battery. The conversion of lead dioxide after charging is over 95%.

Our Quality Assurance laboratory inspects quality of incoming raw materials, in-process semi-finished products and components and 100% finished products before releasing for delivery. The laboratory is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment sourced from renowned makers of the world. The chemical laboratory is equipped with advanced titration and separation mechanism to test primarily the capacity, CCA, RC, Charge Retention tests of all batteries.

Our Factories are highly equipped with Air Treatment and Effluent Treatment plant to keep our environment green & safe. Our ATP and ETP facilities are design for treating the industrial waste water and air for its reuse or safe disposal to the environment.

The factory has built a modern warehouse with access pathway for trucks and container transport. The warehouse provides ample space for storage, sorting, loading and unloading of finished goods and raw materials for a complete packaging solution.
