The UK's largest independent vehicle battery manufacturer will open in early 2019 in Coventry, creating around ninety new jobs, at a new, multi-million pound, high-tech facility that will produce batteries for future hybrid and electric vehicles.
The factory will be operated by a new joint venture, also unveiled today and named Hyperbat Limited (Hyperbat), combining the strengths of two of the UK's leading companies, Williams Advanced Engineering and Unipart Manufacturing Group. The move has been welcomed by the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy as a significant step forward in the UK's contribution to reducing carbon emissions.
