German term or phrase: Akkumulatorenfabrik
An accumulator factory/plant? If so, what is an accumulator? It might be something to do with batteries, I'm not sure. Is an accumulator a type of battery and if so, would it be wrong to call this a battery factory?

Explanation:
Akkumulator = rechargeable battery (see below). Battery factory / battery manufacturing plant or some such phrase should be just fine.

Explanation:
This would be a better choice, since battery factory includes ALL bateries, Durocell, D size, 9 Volt, watch battery. But the Akkumulator type battery, also known as lead acid battery leads to the above translation. Also check out the URL below:
