Hyperbat will be the UK’s largest independent vehicle battery manufacturer.  Its new facility will open in early 2019 in Coventry, creating around ninety new jobs, at a new, multi-million pound, high-tech facility producing batteries for future hybrid and electric vehicles.

The factory will be operated by Hyperbat, which is a new joint venture combining the strengths of two of the UK’s leading companies, Williams Advanced Engineering and Unipart Manufacturing.

The new company and factory combine world-leading expertise in manufacturing, logistics and safe, innovative, high performance vehicle battery technology from Unipart and Williams.  The facility provides a secure future supply chain for UK-based car-makers as well as having strong export potential for manufacturers as their vehicles transition to electric power.  Following construction Hyperbat will begin production at the site in Coventry in early 2019.  The launch customer for Hyperbat batteries is the Aston Martin Rapide E, which will be a limited production run.

Products from the facility will also meet global vehicle battery standards, including ISO26262 from the outset.
