About ACDC

The Automotive Computer Diagnostic Centre (ACDC) Pty Ltd has earned an admirable reputation for its excellent automotive services within the whole of Australia. The reason is not far-fetched: the company is owned and managed by an astute father and son team, G Peter Battisson and Don, who have been able to integrate their passion for engineering and love for the automotive industry into a thriving business. Located strategically in the serene city of Canberra, the company’s facilities are second to none in the country and beyond. The company takes pride in using state-of-the-art diagnostics tools and equipment to pinpoint complex automotive issues, thanks to Peter’s engineering background and his Australian Army career, where he worked on the most sophisticated vehicles and machines. Peter’s deep knowledge and experience in diagnostics and engineering inspired him to start the company in 1970, starting from his suburban garage. Since then, he has invested greatly to develop a world-class facility covering 1,750 square meters. Peter has also impacted Automotive students’ lives at the Canberra Institute of Technology, our former teacher who instilled in them a deeper understanding of automotive principles, leading them to competently diagnose and repair a wide range of vehicles. Every industry insider who has visited ACDC, marvels at their cutting-edge facility and the incredible range of equipment available.

No one was game to touch diagnostics in the 70’s. The technology wasn’t easily implemented or understood. I’ve always been drawn to racing, rally and technology working hand in hand with my time spent in the Australian Amy working on complex automotive maintenance. ACDC seemed like the way of the future - matching my passion for engineering and performance

“When I started the business in 1970, the car parks of Australia were rife with Holdens and Fords with the occasional Mercedes or BMW. In 2000 a flood of more sophisticated European cars entered the market” According to data from UBS, collated by GoAuto, the number of premium or luxury cars sold has skyrocketed since the year 2000 (growing at some 6.6 per cent per year). In 2000, for example, premium and luxury cars made up 18 per cent of the total market. In 2018, that number was 35 per cent.

Meanwhile the landscape of Australian motoring was changing
