Fablink establishes new division for turnkey manufacturing solutions

British tier 1 supplier, Fablink Group has established a new division, Streamline Automotive to meet the rapidly growing demand for low- to medium-volume manufacturing and clean build assembly services from premium OEMs, specialist brands and e-mobility start-ups.

Streamline Automotive will provide cost-effective and complete vehicle assembly capabilities within the Group's state-of-the-art facilities. This service will benefit from Fablink Group’s manufacturing base and strong supply chain management capability. Customers of the new division will also benefit from Fablink Technologies, which will provide full backing to customer engineering teams from first concept study to full-scale manufacture, including product development, prototyping, tooling and Design for Manufacture (DFM) support.

Streamline Automotive also features the sub-brand: Streamline E-Mobility, which will focus on scaling for the mass shift to electrification in the automotive and commercial vehicle sectors. The sub-brand will provide EV companies, start-ups, and e-mobility companies a competitive turnkey manufacturing solution for mixed material architecture including body panels, lightweight chassis and bonded structures as well as complete vehicle assembly. The new division will also provide customers with fundamental support through purchasing and the supply chain including Bill of Materials (BOM) establishment and sourcing strategies across a range of relevant commodities, including EV powertrain systems and batteries. 

Fablink Group is an established strategic OEM partner for global brands such as CAT, DAF, Jaguar Land Rover, JCB, Morgan and Volvo. At present, the company's manufacturing facilities span 6 UK-based sites and over half a million square feet of manufacturing space with over 700 highly skilled professionals.

Richard Westley, founder and CEO, Fablink Group said: “We are seeing rapidly growing demand in the market, including new business enquiries from specialist car companies and EV and e-mobility start-ups who, in the absence of a manufacturing base of their own, increasingly require lightweight, energy-efficient, cost-effective and cutting-edge manufacturing and clean build solutions for their new vehicles and products."
