Low emission vehicles – AVID Technology
|AVID Technology is based in Cramlington, Northumberland and was established in 2005 by Ryan Maughan. AVID designs and manufactures components and systems for electric and hybrid heavy-duty and high-performance vehicles. Ryan established the business in order to try and take positive action on the two huge and connected challenges of climate change and urban air quality and create a business with high quality engineering and professional career opportunities in Northumberland. In the early days of the business these challenges were not widely understood but have come to the forefront of public and government attention in the past 2 or 3 years. |
AVID has worked with different vehicle manufacturers over the past 15 years to help them improve their vehicles and machines and understand how electrification could be used to improve their products efficiency and reduce emissions. This has ranged from electrifying cooling fans on buses and off highway machinery through to developing fully electric powertrains for supercars and luxury SUV’s. The company has built a world class team of highly skilled engineers. AVID’s core technical competencies are high power density electric motors, high performance electronics and thermo fluidic integration. This allows the company to deliver highly integrated electrically driven components ranging from electric coolant pumps and fans to full electric drive systems. AVID is well positioned to grow rapidly as manufacturers move electrified vehicles into higher volume production in response to market demand and government legislation.
