Owner of local e-bike manufacturer hails Milton Keynes as an "enterprise hotspot and innovation hub"

    The family-run e-bike manufacturer, VOLT, has just opened its doors in its new Milton Keynes factory.

    Milton Keynes has been chosen as a base for the manufacturer due to its "exceptional" transport links. James Metcalfe, Founder and Owner, said: "Milton Keynes is an enterprise hotspot and an innovation hub with exceptional UK-wide distribution links.

    "The surrounding area provides a source of exceptional talent, and since some of the largest bicycle component distributors are also based in the area the sourcing of parts is quick and convenient.” 

    Volt will be occupying a 20,000sq ft space and will create up to 30 jobs for local residents.

    James continued: “We are very proud to fully-commit VOLT to the UK and excited to be part of British manufacturing’s resurgence. It has been a fantastic achievement to get the space up and running despite the added burden placed on our teams during the current COVID-19 restrictions.

    "They have faced-up to the daunting challenge of adapting facilities and processes to ensure that we keep our people and customers safe, whilst realising our dream of delivering a cutting-edge e-bike factory. I am immensely proud, and it is testament to the superb team we have here at VOLT.”
