Tropical increasing energy presence

WHILE its core business continues to grow at double digits, Tropical Battery is looking to further distinguish its image from a lead acid battery business into an energy solutions provider across Jamaica and the region. The company has added three new subsidiaries in the last six months and formed a joint venture with CAC 2000 Limited called Enrvate Limited. The other two subsidiaries, Tropical Mobility and Tropical Finance Limited, will be led by Oliver Hill. All companies are meant to complement each other as Jamaica aims to find more energy efficient means and lower carbon output vehicles while the world undergoes a global shift.
