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.
Keith Nicholl, Commercial Director at KMF Group comments:
"On the back of the prime minister's announcement that he's bringing forward the ban on the sale of new petrol and diesel fueled cars to 2030, researchers have said the rate in which electrical charging points are being installed needs to be five times faster.
"There are also warnings that there are many "charging blackspots" across the UK and private contractors are going to have to be appointed to bring the installation of these charging points in the country up to speed.
"We welcomed this increased demand following the announcement in November and invested heavily in EV machinery for metal fabrication to support the nine-year target towards a full roll out of zero emissions vehicles.
"We have prepared ourselves to manage the output of sheet metal needed to support the creation of 35,000 planned EV charging points."
KMF Group uses the latest machinery for metal fabrication to deliver all the components producers in the renewable energy sector need to manufacture and assemble sheet metal fabricated and metal engineered products.
To help renewable engineering customers meet the demand, KMF is offering virtual tours and demonstrations of the machinery. This virtual access will help manufacturers of EV charging points to work out the exact specification in partnership with KMF so the products can be delivered cost effectively and on time to meet the impending deadline.
