Ashwoods Electric Motors is a solution and technology-driven company. We specialise in engineering projects that involve electric drive solutions, as well as developing, manufacturing and supplying permanent magnet motors for professional and industrial use.

Our main task is to deliver solutions and products that enhance product value, performance and competitiveness for our customers.

As a customer-orientated company, we work closely with our customers to meet their engineering and motor requirements at all stages, from initial draft concepts up to fully commercialised solutions and products.

Furthermore, we provide increased value by delivering complete Axial Flux and Interior Permanent Magnet Motor solutions (including controllers etc.) at a competitive price, whilst ensuring superior quality levels through strong design, comprehensive testing and a rigorous quality system.

In addition to providing green technology, Ashwoods is an environmental friendly company that takes health and safety extremely seriously, and we are in the process of being both ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 approved.


Ashwoods Electric Motors moved into a brand new manufacturing facility in 2018, near to Exeter.

All stators are tested with an advanced electrical tester; the rotor undergoes balancing and testing and each one of the completed motors are being run in our durability rig.

Furthermore, we are using a dyno rig where the motors are tested according to heavy duty pre-set cycles. For prototypes, we also put all motors through our vibration test rig.

MCT-Reman is quality certified according to the automotive standard ISO/TS 16949.

Ashwoods Electric Motors is certified according to ISO 9001 (2015). Our quality systems do also correspond to some chosen parts of the ISO/TS 16949.


Even as we move into new premises and fit out our state of the art manufacturing premises, our people will remain our most valuable asset. We more than doubled our workforce in 2017 and amazingly grew at the same rate in 2018. We are innovative, industrious, and international and are constantly looking for more talented people to join our team.


In ten years, Ashwoods has grown from a one-man company to a developer and manufacturer of advanced and innovative electric motors on a large scale, with an owner structure consisting of professional investors, companies from the industry, and management.
