Electric vehicle group set to move into 90,000 sq ft Silverstone facility

How the new Centre of Excellence will look

EV Technology Group is set to move into a 90,000 sq ft unit at MEPC Silverstone Park.

The new facility comprises the firm’s Centre of Excellence and is a part of MEPC’s latest 265,000 sq ft development at Silverstone Park.

EV Technology Group was founded in 2021 with a vision of electrifying iconic motoring brands.

This move follows the recent announcement of the proposed acquisition by EV Technology Group of Fablink Group Holdings, a tier one contract manufacturer, which operates seven manufacturing and assembly sites with over 750 employees.

Fablink operates its Streamline Automotive division, which services the increasing demand in the UK for contract vehicle assembly services, especially in the electric vehicle sector. The new Silverstone facility will allow EV Technology Group and its subsidiaries to rapidly expand electric vehicle manufacturing and assembly capacity, supporting its vision of electrifying iconic brands.

The new facility will be home to the company’s electric vehicle engineering and development hub, whilst also providing facilities for Streamline Automotive for vehicle assembly and finishing.

Wouter Witvoet, CEO and founder of EV Technology Group, said: “Silverstone has been the home to many iconic motoring stories – and our future electrifying iconic brands here will be part of its next chapter. The site’s location puts us in the heart of the booming UK EV industry, and will allow us to scale manufacture and assembly of electric brands such as the iconic MOKE.”
