People are thinking more and more about electromobility. The underlying principle of sustainability is both inspiring and appealing. But even apart from the idealists, non-profit organizations and parties, electromobility in the industry has long since taken off from a niche existence to a boom market. The automotive industry is in the midst of the largest upheaval of its over 100-year history.
In recent year the market for e-bikes and pedelecs has experienced a particular boom. The bicycles with an electric motor are now increasingly appealing both to people who are enthusiastic about technology and to the younger generation. In the stop-and-go traffic of cities, you can frequently get somewhere faster and especially at a lower cost with an e-bike, than you could by car. Shared economy has also long since found its way into the area of electromobility, and numerous logistics companies and service providers now depend on electrically driven cargo bikes, scooters or industrial trucks.
With the founding of Morat Swoboda Motion GmbH, a joint venture between the Franz Morat Group and Swoboda with equal representation, the two tradition-rich companies are expanding their presence on the booming e-motive market. The core business of the newly established company is the production of drive components for electric cars, e-bikes, cargo bikes and e-scooters. The product range includes geared drive shafts, planetary gears, spur gears, pinions and technical housing parts that unite the advantages of metal and plastic. Morat Swoboda’s drive systems combine decades of experience in gear and drive engineering with know-how in mechatronics, electronics, sensors and actuators.
