ABOUT US

End-to-End Solution Provider of Industrial Batteries and Energy Storage.

Regal Eltro was founded in 1981, Cape Town South Africa, supplying mostly security components and batteries to security installers. In 1998, the business was sold and the Managing Director, Philip Daries, immigrated to Australia. 1999 saw the opening of Regal Electro, a battery and security component supplier based in Lake Cargelligo, NSW.

Over the next few years, it became apparent that there was a growing need in the industry for a battery supplier who knew not only the characteristics of various technologies, but also understood the technical manufacturing procedures to ensure a quality product is delivered. Regal Electro had positioned themselves as a premium supplier of fine energy solutions, offering the complete packaged solution for clients.

In 2009, Regal Electro opened our very own custom built premises in Hallam, VIC to ensure fast service and delivery to our clients. 2010 saw Regal Electro New Zealand established. The Lake Cargelligo Head Office moved into a brand new purpose built facility in 2012. The Power Charge ENDUROGEL with the revolutionary Catalyst Life Extender was first imported into Australia in 2012.

In 2015, the first ENLiFEN Energy Storage Optimiser (ESO) prototype was successfully completed and on display at the Comms Connect Exhibition in Melbourne.

In 2017, Regal Electro Pty Ltd went through a rebranding to reinvigorate our product range Power Charge. Power Charge has become Valen, which in Latin means ‘Power’. Brisbane operations began at this time also.

In April 2018, our Sydney logistics and centre in Lawson was opened with the view to again increase our service for clients.

July 2018, Regal Electro Pty Ltd made the strategic decision to go through another rebranding and change the company name to Valen. This decision was made to strengthen our brand and recognition within the Industrial Battery market.

Today, Valen has grown exponentially becoming a trusted advisor to our clients within many different industries. Valen is an industry leader in Energy Storage for mission critical applications and continues to innovate and evolve, keeping abreast of new technologies as they emerge. Valen looks forward to you joining us on the journey!
