Powertrain and e-drive solutions provider Integral Powertrain has announced the development a new state-of-the-art Technical Centre at Shenley Wood, Milton Keynes, UK.

Planned to be operational by Q3 2019, the new facility represents an initial investment of US$8.5m, excluding facilitization, and will feature floor area 47,000ft2 (4,370m2), more than double that of the existing technical center and its annex. There is scope to increase the new floor area to 59,000ft2 (5,480m2), in line with Integral Powertrain’s future business expectations.

The offices are connected to a large workshop, which houses eight new purpose-built test cells with support areas, material handling, inspection, machining facility, electrical and mechanical prototype build and a low-volume production manufacturing area, as well as zones reserved for four additional cells.

“We are proud to announce our investment in the new Milton Keynes Technical Centre, marking the beginning of an exciting new chapter in the growth of Integral Powertrain,” said John McLean, director at Integral Powertrain. “It will serve to support our future expansion plans for the business and it also rewards the employees that have given so much to the business, providing them with a great working environment, a state-of-the-art facility and a basis on which the team can build a legacy for the future.”

Integral Powertrain’s upgraded vehicle emissions and climate test facility will remain at its existing location in Kiln Farm, Milton Keynes.
