Evtec Automotive, an electric vehicle automotive supply specialist, has set out its plans to bolster the UK’s electric car industry.
The newly formed Coventry-based company makes car parts for major names in the UK automotive sector.
David Roberts, chairperson at Evtec Automotive, said: “Our mission is to source, make, deliver and then sustainably dispose of all EV technologies, helping to drive social change and the adoption of zero-emission vehicles.
“We are rebuilding with purpose. That is our ethos. We are employing more disadvantaged people, driving profit to create social value and making the planet a better place for our children and grandchildren. It can’t get any better.”
Evtec Automotive recently acquired Arlington Engineered Systems, which was part of Arlington Industries Group, and has been working on filling its Coventry plant’s order books.
The company is now putting into place plans to grow volumes and customers.
Roberts added: “The Coventry plant’s rebirth, under the new Evtec Automotive brand, represents its next natural evolution. It will now become an essential supplier and sub assembly integrator to car makers in the UK and Europe for complex assemblies in electrical and cooling systems.
“The business is positioning itself as a key tier one supplier to the rapidly growing EV sector.
“With Jaguar Land Rover and many other major customers now really accelerating their electrification plans, we’re positioning ourselves to supply this demand for electric vehicle sales rapidly increase in the coming years. Developing a viable electric vehicle supply base is also vital to the future competitiveness of the automotive industry in this country.”
