Moving fast since 2012
From here Ashwoods’ innovative solutions continued to develop, and in 2011 the first Axial flux motor was produced. Ashwoods Electric Motors as we know it today was founded in 2012 and became ISO 9001 certified in 2013. Just a year later, the first IPM motor was developed which then commercialised in 2016 – and remains industry disruptive to this day.
2017 was another significant year in Ashwoods history, as new premises were secured in the heart of the Devonian countryside near to Exeter and its infrastructure. Innovation Valley, as it was to be later named, signalled the business’ intent to change the face of the industry, alongside sister company, Lightfoot.
