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 and commercialisation followed in 2016 – remaining 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. Innovation Valley, as it was to later be named, signalled the business’ intent to change the face of the industry, alongside sister company, Lightfoot.
