Meet the Owners
Battery World Coffs Harbour’s Paul Simpson has been a part of the Battery World network for the past 15 years – one of the first to open a store.
In May 2016, he made a sea change swapping Sydney’s Blacktown for the mid coast when an opportunity arose to buy the store. Paul plans to bring to Coffs a winning formula he knows works best –provide exceptional customer service.
With a background as a qualified mechanic it was a natural progression to work with batteries. He started his first Battery World business as part of a service station in North Richmond because the two naturally complemented each other. But with Australian’s the biggest and quickest to uptake on new technology Paul quickly saw batteries and the need to stay “charged” at all times was going to provide a new challenge.
He loves being able to fix people’s problems and give them a solution to their power issues and troubles.
In 2015 he rallied the New South Wales and ACT stores to donate batteries to the Children’s Hospital at Westmead to help families who were doing it tough. A self confessed family man – he still rates his wedding day as one of the best days of his life.
Paul plans to become involved with the local community. Annually he helps fundraise for autism research and for Bravehearts children’s safety charity.
Battery World Coffs Harbour will happily take in your old domestic batteries for recycling from cars to AAs.
