HYPERMOTIVE EXPANDS MANUFACTURING CAPABILITY
1st September 2017
Hypermotive are pleased to announce that they are further increasing their capability and capacity, through the relocation of their manufacturing activities to a new dedicated facility on 1st September 2017.
Their new facility is located at Cosford Park, Lutterworth neighbouring Hypermotive’s existing head office. It will provide the Hypermotive Connect division with a further 1500ft2 of floor space dedicated to LV/HV harness design and manufacture and the low volume manufacturing and assembly of automotive electrical systems.
Brad O’Nians, Director, Hypermotive Connect: “The growth of our harnessing business, coupled with taking on a number of low volume electrical systems manufacturing/assembly programmes, has led to an expansion of our manufacturing team. This expansion, coupled with an increasing demand for full-vehicle harness manufacture and on-vehicle working has meant that we needed more manufacturing, vehicle workshop and harnessing assembly space.’’
The new facility is fitted out with three full-size harness boards and six harnessing workstations. The facility also boasts a vehicle development area with full height roller shutter door, giving the capability to work on a wide range of electric and hybrid vehicles from motorcycles through to commercial vehicles.
Hypermotive are in the processes of converting the existing ground floor workshop at head office into a dedicated high voltage development laboratory and a customer project office, with their first customer taking up residence later this month.
Jeremy Bowman, Engineering Director: “Taking on this new facility for Hypermotive Connect gives us the space to further develop our electrical systems manufacturing capability and capacity. This gives the wider Hypermotive business the range of facilities required to work from simple harness assemblies right through to vehicle level development and installation. It’s an exciting time for Hypermotive as we are now able to deliver concurrent vehicle programmes requiring dedicated HV and secure project working areas.”
