UK-based electric and hybrid powertrain specialist Hypermotive has launched a European subsidiary, Hypermotive GmbH. The move, says the company, marks the natural progression of a long-term partnership with German e-mobility engineering and battery distributor GS-Power. The new company will bring Hypermotive’s e-mobility products and integration engineering to EU and Scandinavian customers.
Based in northern Bavaria, the European company is ideally positioned to support the automotive, motorsport and marine markets in Germany and wider Europe. Adam Huckstep, MD at Hypermotive Group, remarked, “Hypermotive’s increasing engagement with Europe-based customers, coupled with the challenges of Brexit, meant that it was becoming very important for Hypermotive to have a permanent establishment in the EU. Hypermotive GmbH provides a highly skilled engineering team, access to vehicle workshops, testing and manufacturing capability, based in the heart of Europe.”
Hypermotive GmbH will focus on delivering fuel cell, battery and autonomous vehicle programs, with particular expertise in the automotive, motorsport and marine sectors. Guido Seitz, MD of GS.net GmbH & Co KG and Hypermotive GmbH, explained, “We’ve been collaborating with Hypermotive for quite some time now, so the launch of Hypermotive GmbH is the logical consequence. Our team of engineers and technicians based in Großostheim (Aschaffenburg) are delivering Hypermotive’s e-mobility engineering and products directly to customers within the European economic zone.”
