Exro Technologies Inc., a clean technology company in Calgary that has developed a new class of power electronics for electric motors and batteries, has announced the launch of a services division along with a Detroit facility coming in 2022.
The division will focus on complete powertrain designs that integrates Exro’s core technology with vehicle powertrains, including embedded software, vehicle control units (VCUs), and batteries. The division will build on Exro’s suite of existing product offerings with Coil Driver and Battery Control System to solve additional challenges for automotive customers.
The Detroit facility will service top automakers pursuing aggressive EV goals. It will enable Exro to capitalize on the services opportunities in the region and among the emerging electrified vehicle industry. An exact location will be provided in the near future.
The Coil Driver expands the capabilities of electric powertrains by enabling intelligent optimization for efficient energy consumption. Exro states it is working with numerous partners from all over the world to bring its technology to electric mobility industries and beyond.
The company’s goal is to become a one-stop-shop for vehicle manufacturers finding their footing in the electric field. Combined with its product technology, the company seeks to be a valuable part of the EV supply chain.
In addition, Exro announced Brian Van Batavia, former technical director of Bollinger Motors and chief engineer of electrification at AVL, will join the company as the president of the new division and bring his team of engineers alongside him, including Justin Goeglein as the division’s director of engineering.
“I’m continuously energized by the growth our team has achieved this year, and I’m thrilled to welcome Brian and Justin to Exro,” says Sue Ozdemir, CEO of Exro Technologies. “The addition of this new arm enables us to better support our customers and fast-growing pipeline with holistic solutions that complement our core technologies for automakers pursuing electrification, while facilitating a new path to accelerate our business growth.”
