By Simon Warburton | 18 December 2018

Charging point manufacturer, Rolec EV is to open a new factory complex in the UK to increase production output by more than 200%, with the creation of a further 50 full-time jobs.

The new factory will complement Rolec's existing head office, stores, factory and showroom in Boston, which already employs more than 100 people - taking Rolec's total staff levels to 150.

"We are delighted to be in a position to further expand our operations with the introduction of a purpose designed factory complex dedicated to the manufacture of EV charging points," said Rolec MD, Kieron Alsop.

"We will continue to manufacture our existing range of products for the caravan, marina and outdoor power solution industries at our head office location, a site we are also planning to expand in the near future.

"The new location will enable us to substantially increase production output, as well as further develop our range of smart charging solutions, including the new DC rapid and Ultrafast products and recently-released EV charging streetlight range."
