On a day like today two years ago, Silence grew up. It was on April 26th of 2017 when we created the new Silence factory that would allow us to reach the rhythm of orders that we had at that time. That is why we changed the production centre for electric motorcycles from Esplugues de Llobregat to Molins de Rei (Barcelona). It was a leap that we dared to make in order to improve and be able to continue our dream in a new production plant.
A dream that at that time realized 50 people working day by day in our facilities. Currently, the Silence factory and R&D have a total of 100 workers. What a change!
We have grown and new people have joined the electric mobility company that leads the sector. Our goal is to have clean cities where all its inhabitants and companies can move with electric motorcycles, and in an environmentally friendly way.
What do we do at the Silence factory?
The Silence production plant has two main functions. In Molins de Rei (Barcelona), where it is located, we manufacture all the electric motorcycles that we sell to our clients, whether they are individuals or companies. And whatever the model: S02, S03 and S01. We make all the steps so that, once we have the chassis of the motorcycle, it is placed in the production line and is built entirely. Right here, our final inspection team checks the vehicle, where it is verified that all the functions of the bike are going correctly and that it will reach the customer in an optimal state, with the best quality. In addition, at the Silence factory we have a line of batteries, where we manufacture all the batteries that our electric motorcycles carry. With the Samsung technology that we use, our expert assembly workers create the biggest secret of the brand. Whoever comes to our factory knows that photos there are forbidden: the secret formula is ours!
And we are the only factory in Spain that produces motorcycles and batteries ‘in house’. And in Europe, we share the honour with the German brand BMW. In the end, everything good stays at home, and it is here in our Silence factory where we make all the electric motorcycles that you then see and drive down the street.
In addition, in the Molins de Rei facilities, there are the offices where the Marketing and Communication, Commercial (National and Export), Administration and Purchasing, and Quality and After-sales departments are located. An endless number of people who give their best every day so that Silence fulfills its objective: to improve the quality of life in all the cities of the world.
But, what do you do in Esplugues de Llobregat?
We’re not just in Molins de Rei, even if it’s the second anniversary of our factory there. Our R&D team, the thinking heads of engineering in Silence, are in Esplugues de Llobregat (Barcelona). In these facilities we have a very special padock where all the motorcycles and their technology are created. There they also test and change the bikes, to update the versions and always find the best formula for everything to work great. In the Esplugues facilities you will also find our financial department, the people who make sure that all the numbers are always in order. What would we do without them!
We want to continue fulfilling challenges and dreams, because working at Silence makes us happy. Let’s toast to a future together and a planet without noise pollution and waste. Everything is possible if we all cooperate and do our part.
Happy second anniversary Silence factory!
