By Hayal Alemayehu
Awash Batteries Plc, a local battery manufacturing plant owned and managed by an Indian businessman, Shyam Agarwal, will beginning next Wednesday to supply its products to the market, it was learnt.
Located on the outskirts of Dukem, a town 35 km east of Addis Ababa, the manufacturing plant is established with an initial investment outlay of over 25 million birr, according to Agarwal, proprietor and managing director of the company.
Established in January 2008, Awash Batteries is the second battery manufacturer locally next to a Chinese firm manufacturing similar products.

Not only car batteries please.augument that with flash light batteries. Used for many purposes and there is a high demand for those.
Extraterrestrial, the pumped up TPLF on every frivolous news.
Don’t you think this will help the power outage that has left Ethiopians in the dark?
Now the economy will boom because Woyane have found a market to sell its batteries after darkening the city.
The non-TPLF people can buy and live in a battery light since they have lost their electricity due to bad governance and policy.
I think Dukem is south of Addis Ababa, not “East of Addis Ababa".
