Electric Vehicle (EV) Charge Point manufacturers looking to outsource sheet metal fabrication will be interested to learn that, following the governments' announcement to ban the sale of petrol and diesel fuelled cars from 2030, KMF Group have invested heavily in sheet metal machinery to support the creation of 35,000 EV charging points in the UK. KMF Group work as manufacturing partners to provide custom metal fabrication on a considerable range of high-quality sheet metal products, from charging station heads to pedestal bases, in a time efficient and cost effective way.
KMF Group offer extensive precision metal engineering capabilities, with 255,000 sq ft of metal manufacturing facilities, including state of the art sheet metal machinery ideal for the manufacture of weatherproof and vandal resistant EV charging stations. The plant list (link) features CNC laser cutting machines, automated CNC sheet metal bending machines, and MIG and TIG welding robots which provide a one-stop-shop solution capable of creating a vast range of exceptional quality sheet metal fabrication products, suitable for the manufacture of electric vehicle charging units.
Keith Nicholl, Commercial Director at KMF Group comments:
"With a full roll out of zero emissions vehicles expected within 9 years, and many 'charging black-spots' across the UK, private contractors are going to have to be appointed to bring the installation of these charging points in the country up to speed."
UK consumers now favour electric vehicles over diesel equivalents according to Leasing.com. This demonstrates a monumental shift in public opinion when it comes to electric vehicles.
KMF has invested heavily in EV machinery to support the government's drive towards zero emissions vehicles. We are now calling on EV charge point manufacturers to step up to the government's challenge.
The UK government looks for innovative ideas to boost the much needed transition to electric vehicles. companies working in the EV field could benefit from a share of a £20 million fund.
