Britain’s Fablink Group has established a new division designed to provide EV brands with turnkey manufacturing solutions.
The new division, called Streamline Automotive, has been created to meet the growing demand for low- to medium-volume manufacturing and clean build assembly services from premium OEMs, specialist brands, and e-mobility startups.
The company hopes that Streamline Automotive will provide cost-effective and complete clean build vehicle assembly capabilities within state-of-the-art facilities.
Streamline Automotive will also feature a dedicated e-mobility sub-brand to provide EV companies, startups, and the like a turnkey manufacturing solution. Streamline E-Mobility will be give these smaller customers access to body panel manufacturing, as well as lightweight chassis and bonded structures and complete vehicle assembly.
“We are delighted to launch Streamline Automotive – a new division of Fablink Group which is dedicated to specialist low to medium volume contract vehicle manufacturing and assembly,” says Richard Westley, founder and CEO of the Fablink Group.
“The launch of Streamline Automotive is a logical step for Fablink Group following a decade and a half of continuous growth and the development of our engineering and manufacturing capability and OEM customer base. We are seeing rapidly growing demand in the market, including new business enquiries from specialist car companies and EV and e-mobility start-ups who, in the absence of a manufacturing base of their own, increasingly require lightweight, energy-efficient, cost-effective and cutting-edge manufacturing and clean build solutions for their new vehicles and products.”
The company has six manufacturing facilities across the UK and employs more than 700 engineers and production staff.
