Fablink Group has announced the establishment of its new division Streamline Automotive. This division has been created 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 startups.

Streamline Automotive is founded on the success and continuous growth of Fablink Group over more than 15 years and draws on the unique manufacturing and technical expertise within the Group. Streamline Automotive provides cost-effective and complete clean build vehicle assembly capabilities within state-of-the-art facilities.

The name ‘Streamline’ has strong heritage within Fablink Group. Alan Westley, the grandfather of Fablink Group’s Founder and CEO, Richard Westley, gave the name ‘Streamline’ to his sheet metal business, which he founded with his brother, George, in 1941. Streamline supplied panels, bodies and structures to the aviation and automotive sectors.

The Streamline service is enhanced by the foundations set by Fablink Group’s comprehensive manufacturing base and strong supply chain management capability. Customers of the new division will also benefit from Fablink Technologies – the advanced engineering hub at the heart of the company – providing full backing to customer engineering teams from first concept study to full-scale manufacture, including product development, prototyping, tooling and Design for Manufacture (or DFM) support.

Streamline Automotive will also feature the sub-brand: Streamline E-Mobility. Rapidly scaling for the mass shift to electrification in the automotive and commercial vehicle sectors, Streamline E-Mobility is primed to accommodate increasing demand. The sub-brand will provide EV companies, startups, 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.

These core technical competencies of Streamline Automotive and Fablink Group are highly applicable to electrically powered vehicles, where lightweight components are of vital importance to battery range, vehicle performance and environmental impact.

Streamline Automotive will also provide customers with fundamental support through purchasing and the supply chain including bill of materials establishment and sourcing strategies across a range of relevant commodities, including EV powertrain systems and batteries.
