Ashwoods Permanent Magnet Motors

We design and manufacture smaller, lighter and more efficient permanent magnet electric motors across a range of sectors including materials handling, off highway, automotive and marine


Ashwoods interior permanent magnet motors can be up to a third of the size and weight and up to 15% more efficient than traditional motor technologies. This enables considerable scope for innovative application design whilst extending vehicle range. 


Ashwoods permanent magnet axial flux motors use surface mounted permanent magnet technology to deliver high power with fantastic efficiency. Utilising a compact pancake design our axial flux electric motors is especially suited to high torque density applications.


The unique patented design of the Ashwoods interior permanent magnet motor enables it to integrate into applications in a compact and efficient manner. The option to provide core motor components only enables redundant components to be removed.


Engineering Solutions

Our in-house innovative engineering team enables us to offer more than just electric motors. Using simulation and an advanced testing facility we can provide consultancy and custom motor solutions.


The Ashwoods range of permanent magnet electric motors are used extensively in a wide range of applications. Combining attributes such as high efficiency, lightweight and compact with low cost means our motors are the obvious choice for many applications.



Ashwoods Electric Motors has two UK manufacturing facilities where all motors are produced to OEM tier 1 quality standards.

What the industry is saying about us


We didn't know motors like those from Ashwoods existed, we now fit them on all our premium electric karts.
