An electric flight motor manufacturer has soared into one of Oxfordshire’s new under construction employment development sites.

Evolito, the company who claim to have the world’s most advanced urban air mobility motors, has filled the first three units at Catalyst Bicester, the new under construction, £100 million advanced manufacturing and technology business community in Bicester.

The company, a spin out from electric motor company YASA, is set to operate from units 1-3 which are interconnected and total 38,000 square feet.

Catalyst Bicester is under construction to the town’s south, just off the A41 adjacent to the Bicester Avenue retail centre and the new Holiday Inn.

Evolito has now started a highly specialised fitout of the new premises ahead of relocation from its current Kidlington base.

Simon Parsons, Albion Land said: “We warmly welcome Evolito as the first company to join Catalyst, and what a company.

“When we started this project, our third major investment in Bicester, it was in response to demand from technology, advanced manufacturing, and high-performance engineering companies to create many new jobs and help to reduce out-commuting from the town.

“Evolito’s arrival – a pioneering company leading the electric flight revolution – is exciting news for Bicester.

“Bicester is becoming the focus for technology and knowledge-based industries in north Oxfordshire.”

Albion Land will begin their next construction phase in early 2023.
