IMPORTANT: Exide and the prevention of COVID-19

During the COVID-19 lockdown our Exide operations have closed, however we have standby teams readily available to support the essential services. If you are an essential service provider or in case of an emergency, please contact our emergency hotline on 0800 112 600.

Exide will be doing all we can to prevent the infection of our loyal customers, employees and stakeholders in the supply chain and have taken the following precautionary measures:

  • Automated hand-sanitiser units will be placed at various touchpoints.
  • Sanitation of all Exide products and storage facilities.
  • All Exide facilities will be routinely cleaned and sanitised.
  • Temperature screening will be conducted frequently on all employees.
  • The use of biometric finger scanners will be discontinued.
  • Education sessions to explain the importance of hygiene and how to curb the spread of COVID-19.
  • All external meetings will be held via Skype or teleconference.
  • Updates will be given on a regular basis through official Exide channels.

While this does not guarantee the complete prevention of the virus, it is a step toward curbing the spread of COVID-19.

Thank you
