Britishvolt, a company that specialises in battery engineering for electric vehicles, has chosen to move to the borough, bringing new and highly skilled jobs to this area.
Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council Leader Stuart Bray said:
We are extremely pleased that Britishvolt has chosen MIRA Technology Park in Hinckley and Bosworth as its new global headquarters. This signals confidence in this area and underlines the importance of this part of the Midlands for the future development of battery technology that will help power electric cars of the future. This is much needed and very welcome news at this time; it’s great to see an innovative company like Britishvolt choosing to move to this area, bringing with its highly skilled jobs and investment for this crucial British industry. Following the recent government announcement to ban all petrol and diesel vehicle production by 2030, Britishvolt’s innovation in powering electric vehicles will be an increasingly important industry and source of economic growth for this area in the future and will contribute to the delivery of the council’s climate change strategy. We welcome them to the borough and wish them great success.
