Who is
Banner Batterien?

Banner Batterien is an Austrian family-owned company with decades of experience in the production and sale of starter batteries, industrial batteries, battery accessories and tire balancing weights. With its production facility in Linz-Leonding and a total of around 800 employees, Banner is one of the most modern and environmentally friendly battery plants in Europe and is a partner to major vehicle manufacturers such as BMW, VW and Audi.

CANCOM Austria emerged from K-Businesscom (formerly Kapsch BusinessCom) at the beginning of 2024. The following case study was written before that and therefore the text was left in the original version.

On the one hand, KBC is a big player, but on the other, it is flexible enough to respond optimally to our needs. What's more, we are privately owned companies - we were simply equal partners right from the start. And now that we have outsourced IT to KBC, I can finally take care of other important digitalization issues.
