WN VTech, a specialist vehicle manufacturer, is planning a major site move for VCS, the manufacturer of emergency services vehicles. The new site in Bradford will be the largest dedicated ambulance and police vehicle factory in the UK.
The new facility will house a dedicated R&D facility that doubles its engineering capability, enabling the company to maintain its reputation for creating the lightest vehicle conversions available while reducing emissions and increasing fuel efficiency.
The site move will also create more than 150 jobs and feature a dedicated training academy to provide a boost to the local community. To facilitate the expansion, VCS has appointed several senior hires. Paul Webb takes on the role of operational managing director, and Nick Withington becomes electric training lead.
Frank Barrett, CEO at WN VTech, said: “Our recent growth and expansion are a testament to the dedication and continuous innovation of our teams across the Group. We are thrilled to welcome our new hires, and to move VCS into its new facility.
“The new site will ensure we continue to deliver world-class emergency vehicles to our customers in the UK and beyond, and I’m personally incredibly proud of the opportunities for skills training it will provide.”
