Eskuta expands premises to accommodate growing demand

Midlands-based e-bike company Eskuta is set to grow its presence in the area with a strategic expansion of its premises.

The expansion is marked by the installation of a new mezzanine, a move that promises to double the stock capacity of the manufacturer.

Currently headquartered in two units at the Bermuda Innovation Centre, Nuneaton, Eskuta’s existing premises have played a pivotal role in its growth trajectory.

However, the decision to invest in a new mezzanine installation in both units has been driven by a commitment to innovate within the Light Electric Vehicle (LEV) sector and to cater to increasing demand.

The strategic move will provide an additional 160 square metres of space, allowing Eskuta to serve a larger customer base and reduce waiting times for their ‘moped styled’ e-bikes, which are all assembled on-site by Eskuta technicians.

This expansion also holds positive implications for the local community as the increased stock capacity is expected to generate additional job opportunities at the firm.

Ian O’Connor, founder and managing director of Eskuta, said: “The expansion marks an exciting time for Eskuta, the new mezzanine installation is the first stage of our expansion plans, and the additional capacity will allow us to reduce lead times and enter new developing markets.

“We are passionate as ever about shaping the future of e-mobility and championing the importance electric bikes and Light Electric Vehicles will play in the future, as we head towards net zero and aim to reduce congestion in our towns and cities.

“Coventry, Birmingham, and the surrounding areas have been the birthplace of many leading motorcycle and cycle manufacturers over the years, and we are proud to be continuing that legacy as we all transition to a sustainable and electric future.”

First established by O’Connor in 2015, Eskuta is known for producing moped ‘esque’ e-bikes with styling and features for both the traditional consumer and last-mile delivery sectors.

Recent accolades have included winning Reach Media’s BusinessLIVE’s ‘Small Business of the Year 2022’ along with the SX-250 e-bike being named in a recent article as ‘Best Moped style e-bike 2023’ by Expert Reviews.

The mezzanine is expected to be fully completed by early September 2023.
