A Leamington company on the cutting edge of new motor control technology has been recognised with the Queen’s Awards for Enterprise in Innovation.
Electric high speed motor specialists Aeristech, which is based in Hermes Close, has been honoured for its work in developing a range of advanced, high-speed electric motors to power electric superchargers and hydrogen fuel cell air-side compressors.
The rapidly growing company, which employs more than 40 employees in the town, has a growing portfolio of contracts with vehicle manufacturers and Tier 1 suppliers bringing the benefits of its technology to market.
Aeristech’s technology allows higher performance from the company’s smaller, cooler-running motors, thus helping its customers to achieve higher performance from their own products and playing a significant role in the advancement of technologies to reduce vehicle emissions.
Richard Wall, CEO of Aeristech, said: “Over the past few years Aeristech has developed and commercialised what we believe to be the most advanced, oil-free, high-speed electric motor systems available, and it is very gratifying to have this recognised by the receiving of a Queen’s Award for Enterprise.
“I am very proud of our talented team at Leamington HQ who have been instrumental in this recognition.
“Our clients in the automotive industry, as with other sectors we’re operating in, such as aviation, stationary power and industrials, are adopting our technology as part of their strategy to reduce emissions. We expect to become the technology of choice for fuel cell applications, given the significant energy reductions we can provide.”
The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise recognised Aeristech’s progress in delivering its most ambitious set of motor systems yet. Established 54 years ago it is the most prestigious business award in the UK and celebrates the success of exciting and innovative businesses which are leading the way with pioneering products or services.
Aeristech was founded in 2006 to develop electrification of automotive supercharger systems and has since become a leading designer of advanced electric motor systems. The company is based in Warwickshire, at the heart of the UK engineering industry, with access to automotive professionals, manufacturers, and prototype component suppliers.
Aeristech’s technology enables them to manufacture the world’s fastest accelerating and most power dense permanent magnet variable speed electric motors. Aeristech’s high-speed motors are ideal for applications where efficiency, power density and speed of response are essential.
The company recently moved into new dedicated headquarters in Leamington Spa, with laboratories, pilot production facilities and four fully instrumented test cells for motor and turbo-machine commissioning, validation and durability testing. In 2020 the company received a Queen’s Award for Enterprise: Innovation for its electric motor system designs.
