WAU, a Nottingham-based e-bike company, is stepping up business operations to eradicate ‘range anxiety’ – Business


Nottingham-based e-bike company WAU continues to grow its business and expand into international sales channels, Europe and America.

WAU said it has ambitions to eradicate “range anxiety” from e-bikers and roll out energy storage for households nationwide.

The Nottingham-based company said its e-bikes were “flying off the shelves” within just months of each mass production run, with demand growing from commuters, couriers and tourists across the country.

It is now increasing the annual production rate at its Essex manufacturing plant this year to more than five times current production.

Linas Pozerskis, Founder of WAU, said: “We are working tirelessly to open new outlets in European capitals, including but not limited to Berlin, Paris and Madrid. A huge leap forward in the US market is also on the horizon, as we seek to consolidate our position in more distant international territories.

“WAU is a highly motivated and ambitious company with a clear plan to grow our workforce to 300-400 employees. A brand new Gigafactory site in the Midlands for the production of e-bikes is being prepared to meet growing demand from UK and international consumers.

“We also have exciting plans to diversify our product line into new electrical performance verticals, including deploying electrical walls as an energy storage solution to power households nationwide.”

Squad growth and a talent recruitment campaign is also underway in Nottingham and Birmingham to reach its next milestone of 88 squad members.

This includes a broader expansion of executive, marketing, software and fulfillment departments, with talent acquired from EV heavy hitters such as Polestar, Volta Trucks and Maserati’s e-mobility divisions to fill these new roles.
