Rolec expansion creates 50 new jobs in Boston

Boston-based Rolec Services Ltd, specialists in the manufacture of outdoor electrical equipment, have announced the opening of a new factory complex at Haven Business Park, creating 50 full-time jobs.

The production facility has been developed to focus on the manufacture of Rolec’s electric vehicle charge point range.

The new Haven Business Park factory will complement Rolec’s existing head office, stores, factory and showroom in Ralph’s Lane, Wyberton – which already employs more than 100 people, taking Rolec’s total staffing levels to more than 150.

Kieron Alsop, Managing Director of Rolec, said: “We are delighted to be in a position to further expand our operations in Boston, with the introduction of a purpose-designed factory complex dedicated to the manufacture of EV charging points.

“We will continue to manufacture our existing range of products for the caravan, marina and outdoor power solutions industries at Ralph’s Lane, a site we are also planning to expand in the near future.

“The new Haven Park location will enable us to increase production output by more than 200 per cent and continue to produce some of the world’s most sophisticated EV charging points – including our industry-leading EV Charge Online system, which enables EV drivers to operate and pay for the use of EV charging points throughout the UK via their mobile phone.”
