About YASA Ltd

YASA manufactures a range of standard electric motors and supplies custom and off the shelf e motors from their factory and company Headquarters in Oxfordshire.

YASA was founded on the principle that small, light electric motors will 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.

They have been established over 10 years and recently have grown significantly. YASA was founded by Dr Tim Woolmer who created their motor whilst carrying out his PhD. The company was then created and they now have numerous well known customers such as Ferrari and other similar OEM's.

YASA is part of the current engineering revolution and aims to be the world's best supplier of electric motors and controllers. They aim to be in every domestic vehicle before the end of 2040.
