Equipmake (the “Company”) is a UK-based technology company, which has developed a range of electrification products for the provision of electric vehicle drivetrains to meet the needs of the automotive, aerospace and other sectors in support of the transition from fossil-fuelled to zero emission powertrains.
Equipmake’s products can be used in a number of segments of the transport sector, but its initial focus has been on the bus sector, where it has secured a contract for retrofitting existing buses currently in service in addition to forming a collaboration with Beulas to develop a double decker bus, incorporating its electric drive train, for the UK market. Equipmake’s products can be applied in a variety of other vehicle electrification contexts, including hybrid, fully electric and fuel cell vehicles.
Following a number of years of engagement with potential customers, the Company now has a significant pipeline of opportunities of in excess of £400 million at various stages of negotiation, as demand for electric vehicles increases as part of the global decarbonisation movement.
