Dukosi charges ahead

An Edinburgh company helping develop new battery technology for electric vehicles has announced significant plans for expansion in 2016.

Dukosi, based at Edinburgh Technopole, will be hiring four new members of staff having received £1.2m of equity funding in November. 

The new staff will allow the company to develop their Evoic intelligent battery management more rapidly. 

With further expansion planned in the near future, Dukosi are also looking to increase their accommodation space at the Midlothian science park to foster further growth. 

Judith Sanderson, park manager, said: “Edinburgh Technopole is renowned for providing flexible and inspiring work space for dynamic and pioneering companies.

“The science park boasts a broad range of clients and supports a culture of innovation within a natural setting. 

“It is great to see our clients grow their business at Edinburgh Technopole and continue to bring long-term, high-value employment to the area.”

Gordon Povey, CEO at Dukosi, added: “This is an exciting time for Dukosi and we were delighted to have been awarded funding to allow us to expand and accelerate our technical developments. 

“Edinburgh Technopole is the ideal setting for us to continue the development of our pioneering Evoic technology and we very much look forward to growing our business.”
