Evolito acquires Electroflight for Battery Powertrain Solutions
Evolito, a privately-owned company designing and manufacturing world-leading electric motors and controllers for aerospace applications, has today announced the acquisition of the business and assets of Cheltenham-based aerospace battery solutions company Electroflight.
Evolito supplies high-performance, low-weight axial-flux motors and controllers that are smaller, lighter and with a higher safety factor than any other competing electric propulsion technology.
Evolito’s products enable a range of new electric propulsion applications, helping to accelerate the industry’s move towards net zero.
Electroflight has a proven track record of delivering safety critical, innovative battery solutions for the electrification of the aerospace industry.
Following the acquisition, Electroflight will become a wholly-owned subsidiary of Evolito and will focus on delivering next-generation battery technology to complement Evolito’s unique motors and controllers.
Ajay Lukha, Chief Commercial Officer at Evolito, said: “We are very excited to complete the acquisition of Electroflight today. The combined capabilities will enable us to deliver flexible solutions for our customers, from best-in-class motor and controller subsystems to fully-integrated electric powertrains.”
