A little history check is in order.

 

History

 

Exide came to existence back in 1880. It was not called Exide back then though. What happened was a result of a major event which took place in 1860 – the discovery of lead acid battery. At that time, lead chloride was used as the active material inside the batteries. The production of lead acid batteries began in the 1880s. The company, now called Exide, was called Chloride Electrical Storage Syndicate. Since oxide was critical to making of lead acid batteries, the company coined the name Exide – an acronym for Excellent Oxide. Then it began circulating all over the world due to Industrial Revolution in the British Empire.

In India, Chloride Electrical Storage Syndicate set up shop as Chloride Electrical Storage Company (CESCO) in 1916. The first manufacturing facility was set up by CESCO in 1947 and it also marked the birth of Associated Battery Makers Eastern Limited (ABMEL). Exide was one of th principal brands of ABMEL, the other being Dagenite (for Rolls Royce). A second factory in 1969 made ABMEL meet demands from the market.

In 1972, ABMEL became Chloride India Limited. In 1995, Chloride Industries Limited became Exide Industries Limited and merged the identity with its most popular brand – Exide.
