About Us

YASA Motors Abingdon

YASA Motors was founded on the principle that small, light electric motors would play a growing role in meeting both the strict emissions targets being set globally in a wide range of industries and the requirement for greater efficiency through electrification.

The Company was incorporated in 2009 based on a unique patented motor technology invented by the Company’s founder and CTO Dr Tim Woolmer whilst studying for his DPhil at Oxford University.  

The unique YASA motor technology is ideal for a range of mobile applications such as hydraulics replacement, power generation, traction and propulsion and hybridisation. 

YASA Motors manufactures a range of standard electric motors and generators based on our unique motor topology at our factory and Company Headquarters in Abingdon, Oxfordshire.  The YASA-750, YASA P400 Series and YASA-400 products have been designed to be integrated into customers’ products in a range of markets and industries with minimal application engineering. 

In addition to our standard products, YASA has a design and development team dedicated to making bespoke motors for customers for medium-high volume applications.
