Who we are
Inmotion is a global supplier of electric motors, motor controllers, and auxiliary equipment for the industrial vehicle industry.
Our customers are electric and hybrid vehicle OEMs who have high requirements on quality and reliability, on-time-delivery, cost efficiency, as well as optimal integration into the target vehicle.
Quality and Reliability
As a long term supplier to numerous vehicle OEMs and industrial machinery OEMs, Inmotion has developed both products and production processes that support our customers' needs. We are well-versed in lean manufacturing and have a strong tradition of continuous improvement.
In-region, On-time delivery
Many of our customers are global, with multiple manufacturing sites around the world. We have therefore adopted an "In-region, for-region" manufacturing strategy, where production of our components is replicated in multiple regions, in order to better serve our customers. This enables our customers to minimize lead times as well as logistics and inventory costs.
Co-engineering and application support
From our worldwide application centers we provide OEMs with local support and are able to customize our product offering to the specific needs of each vehicle. We can provide system design support in order to offload the vehicle OEM's R&D resources, or just focus on providing excellent component support, as needed.
Where we come from
Inmotion has been providing industrial power electronics solutions since the 1960's and electromechanical solutions since 1940's. Building upon our solutions for various industrial markets, we have been increasingly focusing our effort on products for electric vehicles since the 1990's.
Inmotion launched its first AC inverters for electric forklift trucks in 1996. This was a starting point for the conversion from DC to AC technology for the whole material handling market. We were uniquely placed to lead this conversion with our long experience from AC induction controls, as well as servo systems controls in other applications, including robotics and industrial appliances.
To date we have supplied several million inverters to vehicle customers around the world. With our extensive experience from large scale production of both high and low voltage products for vehicles, spanning from golf carts and forklift trucks to city buses and construction equipment, Inmotion is the natural choice for OEMs looking for a long term supplier of power electronics.
