Birth of the need

The offer that existed in the field of brushless motors mainly concerned standard motors. When new developments occurred, some customers were unable to integrate these standard motors into their new products and instead looked for customised motorisation solutions that perfectly matched their needs. Electromag was founded in 2003 on this basis.


“My goal was to meet the demands of customers who couldn’t find an engine solution that matched their needs; I told myself we couldn’t leave their demands unsatisfied. Vincent Comte – Founder of Electromag SA
