12 months, 365 days, 8,760 hours…. It’s been a year! The new Silence factory, located in Molins de Rei, is celebrating its first year and we are very happy. Many things have happened and many scooters have been manufactured, specifically 1,797 units, making it possible for the company to grow.
On the morning of April 26th 2017, the inauguration of the factory took place, which was attended by many people, including the press, customers, the public administration and the entire company, who did not want to miss a great event. Led by the journalist Josep Lluís Merlos, the event was attended by different parliaments, among them the CEO of the company, Carlos Sotelo; the Managing Director of AEDIVE, Arturo Pérez de Lucía; the General Director of Industry of the Generalitat of Catalonia, Núria Betriu; and the Mayor of Molins de Rei, Joan Ramón Casals, a city that has welcomed us very well.
Silence has the only factory in Europe that develops and manufactures its own battery packs, and has a capacity of 12,000 in one year, as well as 10,000 electric scooters per year. An achievement that makes us even more special and innovative!
“The balance is very positive. In the last year we have grown, both in manufacturing and in personnel. The factory is meeting high expectations and making Silence’s dream of improving the quality of life in cities possible” – Carlos Sotelo, CEO Silence
The summary of an entire year at this location is perfect. A city and a great location to be well connected with the highways, good accessibility for all people who must come here, work or visit us. In addition to being the idyllic place for factories, sales and marketing to work together to complement all the work done in R&D and administration, located in Esplugues de Llobregat.
Now, we want to continue adding years and grow with you in this project of the 21st century, which provides us with the solution to one of the great problems of our time. Will you join us?
