In any form of manufacture, sometimes only the right material or combination of materials will do.

Thinking globally, acting locally.

In any form of manufacture, sometimes only the right material or combination of materials will do. We understand that a factory’s need for a unique specification, carefully defined metal, component or additive surpasses all other geographic or logistical considerations of what can and cannot be procured. The term expander’, commonly used in the lead-acid battery industry to describe the crucially important 3‑way formulation of surface-active additives (e.g. lignosulfonate + barium sulphate + carbon/graphites) is required for manufacturing positive and negative battery plates and delivering the level of battery performance required.

Typically, Oxford’s consolidation process consists of importing six separate additive orders from six individual European manufacturers to load as one or more containers, within a limited lead time. Long-standing relationships with suppliers in Europe, Asia, the U.S. and South America enable us to achieve the highest standards in service and delivery. Coordinating incoming deliveries from outside the EU adds maximum value to the manufacturing process. 

Our team’s knowledge of transit procedure means that borders can be crossed and containers quickly consolidated without import charges within the EU, the EFTA-states and further contracting parties, as the need arises.

Business is about making money, but that’s not all. Partnerships bring stability in business, efficiency in transaction, increase our mutual industry understanding and bring some level of peace in doing business. Much like our 20 year relationship with UK company, Oxford Exports, we try to develop partners who value these long and sustainable relations to take the business forward.

Industrias Meteoro and Oxford Export have had a long-standing relationship which goes back as far as 1992. Nothing that we have ever requested of them to support our business is too much or too inconvenient. This dedication to customer service and understanding of our requirements make delivery of the plant’s battery materials a smooth and seamless exercise every time. This cooperation has better enabled us to dedicate resources to developing internal battery manufacture and we see them as a natural extension of our procurement team.

ABM and Oxford have been in business for many years. Key to Oxford Export’s success has been the ability to establish strong relationships with their business clients which extend well beyond traditional partnerships. They constantly strive to understand our needs and exceed them in service delivery, product quality and availability.
