Volta Trucks Accelerates Growth With New Base Of Operations In Warwickshire
Electric Truck Company, Volta Trucks, has recently taken on half of the office space at The American Barns development located on the Banbury Road, Warwick, in a deal brokered by Simon Hain of ehB Reeves.
The office will house up to 46 members of staff, focusing on the engineering and production of the Volta Zero, a 16-tonne commercial vehicle designed for last-mile urban logistics.
Ben Anstey, director of electrical systems and digital experience at Volta Trucks, said: “Warwick’s central location is ideal for our engineering and business needs and is part of our UK expansion.
“The all-electric Volta Zero has been designed from the ground up to reduce the environmental impact of commercial deliveries in city centres with safety and people at the heart of everything we do.
“The vital work taking place in Warwick will play a huge part in this, as we accelerate the industry to transition towards electric commercial fleets and pave the way for a cleaner, healthier and more sustainable future for us all.”
Simon Hain, director at ehB Reeves, added: “It’s a huge coup for Warwickshire and the West Midlands region as a whole to have such a forward-thinking automotive firm on our patch.
“We’ve seen the introduction of an ultra-low emission zone in Birmingham, so we know the issue of reducing emissions is one the region is already taking steps to tackle.
“We hope having a company like Volta Trucks on our doorstep will help us to become a flag-bearer for cleaner and greener logistics.”
