Synchropulse beat hundreds of companies to become a Central region winner of the 2007 Shell Springboard programme. This award recognises innovative energy saving technology that can significantly reduce Carbon emissions.
Speaking about his award Andrew Hogbin from Synchropulse said, "This award will make a big difference and will help us to take the final steps towards commercialisation of the technology. We hope to see our motors in applications as diverse as commercial fridges, industrial pumps and electric vehicles to deliver massive energy savings."
