Let’s start with where he and batteries all began….

In 1983 he left Varta and started his own business alongside with his business partner for who he had known for many years. This company became one of the main battery suppliers in Bristol. After many successful years in 1992 they sold the business to Capital Batteries where he remained until he felt the call again and launched his own business independently this time in 1993, this would be called Compass Batteries. The team at Compass Batteries was built up starting with his son, Mike (who has now been in the same industry 27 years) also his wife and his daughter in law plus a loyal group of engineers handpicked for specialised work. Compass Batteries flourished a real family environment style business until 2009 when he sold the business to a very large company. This large firm brought many changes to the business, Malcom continued to work for them for several years as did his son. In 2013 Malcolm’s ‘son and his wife started up Battery Technologies UK Ltd,
