Ground broken on Milton Keynes engine design centre
A ground-breaking ceremony has heralded the start of construction for automotive manufacturer Integral Powertrain’s new and purpose-built steel-framed technical centre.
The technical centre is being created to meet the company’s e-Drive business growth following its success in developing electric motors and inverters for firms such as McLaren, Aston Martin and Triumph Motorcycles.
Integral Powertrain Director John McLean said: “The new centre represents a major milestone for Integral Powertrain. The new site is more than three times the floor area compared to the existing engineering centre, and will be used to house our growing teams, provide new conference areas, much greater stores and build capacity, a larger e-Drive test centre, new materials and R&D facilities and larger machining / fabrication areas.
As well as providing an excellent environment for staff and clients alike, it will allow most of our engineering and support teams to be located on one site, bringing efficiency that will enable us to develop innovative products to meet growing customer demand in the e-Drive sector.”
