WMG welcomes Britishvolt establishing new HQ in Midlands

WMG, at the University of Warwick, welcomes the news that Britishvolt will be establishing their UK headquarters and R&D centre on the MIRA technology park in Warwickshire.

This move underlines the Midlands region's role as the UK's leading innovator in battery technology, building on investments and expertise at WMG and the UKBIC.

Prof David Greenwood, CEO WMG centre HVM Catapult and Director of Industrial Engagement adds “The establishment of large scale battery manufacturing in the UK is critical to retaining and growing the UK car industry. With such a facility in place, this opens up opportunities for both upstream and downstream supply chain companies.”
