Good young news from UK: Evtec Automotive, an electric vehicle automotive supply specialist, has set out plans to bolster the future of the UK car industry and shore up the supplier base with a new ethical, sustainable approach to business.
The newly formed, Coventry-based company makes car parts for many of the major players in the UK automotive sector with a major focus on supporting Britain’s growing electric vehicle sector.
«Our mission – said David Roberts, Chairperson Evtec Automotive – 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, that was part of Arlington Industries Group and has been working hard on filling its Coventry plant’s order books. Monthly sales are now back to pre-crisis levels, and it is on target to achieve its employment strategy by end of March 2021, with 35% of jobs being given to disabled workers.
Evtech’s 80,000 sq. ft plant has long employed disabled workers. Originally it was part of Remploy, a scheme formerly sponsored by the Department of Work and Pensions to provide on-going sustainable employment for disabled people.
