PENOX 25th anniversary

PENOX was born on October 1st, 1994 – as PENARROYA OXIDE – and find its origins in the merger of the lead oxide activities of Heubach & Lindgens and of Metaleurop, bringing together lead oxide production and experience in the fields of red lead, litharge, battery oxide and Engineering to create the European leader in lead oxide production. Even if we celebrate today our 25th anniversary, this is more than 150 years of experience that PENOX has acquired through these two initial industrial shareholders, involved in lead oxide production already in the 19th century.

This unique experience added to a passion for lead oxide makes PENOX the preferred partner for every important consumer of lead oxide, starting with all lead acid battery producers. PENOX offers to its customers a unique security of supply being the only producer in Europe with multiple production sites – one in Germany and one in Spain – but also the possibility to get global supply all around the world thanks to our factories in Mexico and Korea.

What will happen during the next 25 years? Environmental and energy storage issues are big challenges to the battery industry but also opportunities! PENOX R&D team is developing new materials to support the lead-acid battery industry in increasing its competitiveness by improving the performance of both positive and negative plates. 2019 – year of our 25th birthday – will be a record year for Battery Additives sales thanks to the hard team work, commitment and dedication of all the PENOX employees around the globe!

We take the opportunity of this 25th anniversary to thank warmly all our customers and business partners for the fruitful collaboration and partnership developed along the years and look forward to supporting you in the development of the next generation of lead acid battery!
