The vision statement of Ashwoods Electric Motors is to be a global innovator that respects no limits. That vision is rapidly becoming a reality with the in-house innovative solutions and products having exposure across much of the world. Having already established markets for our motors across the UK and Ireland, Europe and North America, we recently shipped our first motor to Africa and are looking to expand our presence in Asia.
In recent months, the global remit of Ashwoods Electric Motors has been demonstrated in trade shows, with exhibitions in Michigan, Madrid and Shanghai all boasting products from Innovation Valley in the space of a few months.
Splitting their time between the high-volume manufacturing headquarters of Innovation Valley in Devon, Ashwoods’ sales team ‘put boots on the ground’ across the United Kingdom and Ireland, Europe, North America and more recently Turkey and south east Asia.
