Evolito, a manufacturer of electric motors and controllers for aerospace applications, has acquired the business and assets of Cheltenham, UK-based aerospace battery maker Electroflight. Electroflight will become a wholly-owned subsidiary of Evolito, and will focus on delivering next-generation battery technology to complement Evolito’s motors and controllers.
Evolito says its axial-flux motors and controllers are smaller, lighter and safer than competing electric propulsion technology. Electroflight has “a proven track record of delivering safety-critical, innovative battery solutions for the electrification of the aerospace industry.”
Ajay Lukha, Chief Commercial Officer at Evolito, said, “The combined capabilities [of the two companies] will enable us to deliver flexible solutions for our customers, from best-in-class motor and controller subsystems to fully-integrated electric powertrains.”
