EV Technology Group has agreed to acquire specialist manufacturer, Fablink Group Holdings in a deal valued at £38.8m.

Northamptonshire-headquartered Fablink has annual revenues of £110m and is an established Tier 1 supplier to the automotive, transport and off-highway sectors, counting leading global OEMs in its customer base.

The transaction is valued at up to £38.8m with £29.5m to be paid in cash for an initial 76 per cent of Fablink.

Fablink has 750 employees across seven manufacturing sites and recently launched Streamline Automotive to serve the explosion in electric vehicle assembly and manufacturing demand.

On completion of the deal Fablink’s CEO Richard Westley will become EV Technology’s chief operating officer.

The acquisition is expected to be finalised later this year and is a strategically important one for EV Technology Group, giving it access to Fablink’s world-class in-house manufacturing and engineering expertise.
