Integral Powertrain scoops awards at the MKBAA
Integral Powertrain (IP) has scooped a double victory at the Milton Keynes Business Achievement Awards (MKBAA), winning the prestigious Business of the Year award, as well as being recognised for hard-work and dedication to Innovation and Technology.
In its sixth year, the Awards are held to recognise the achievements of Milton Keynes businesses within a variety of sizes and sectors at the Marshall Stadium.
Judges said Integral Powertrain illustrated all that is great about the Milton Keynes knowledge-based economy. One judge said: “Times may be uncertain but the judges felt that the future was very bright with a company such as Integral Powertrain leading the development of innovation and technology in the way they self-evidently do.”
The judges said Integral Powertrain were worthy winners of the Technology Business of the year award due to its “sophisticated electrical technology that demonstrates how electrification of the powertrain can beat the internal combustion engine. Their technology is genuinely frontier in its application.”
Integral Powertrain manufactures high performance electric motors and control technology for automotive, motorsport and aerospace sectors.
Employing over 170 staff across Milton Keynes, IP works with prestigious manufacturers and Tier 1 suppliers, its engineers create innovative, complex and market leading powertrain and e-Drive solutions used for a wide range of applications in motorsport, passenger and off-highway vehicles as well as aerospace, marine and industrial equipment.
IP operates three divisions; Integral e-Drive, Integral e-Hub and Integral Powertrain, at its Milton Keynes Engineering and Emissions Centres.
Alan Cherrington, Chief Operating Officer at Integral Powertrain said: “We are delighted to have been awarded Business of the Year and Innovation and Technology winners at the Milton Keynes Business Achievement Awards on our first year of nomination. We are proud to have been recognised for our tireless work surrounding the innovation and technology of our products and business for a more sustainable future of transportation.
“It has been a very exciting year for us having worked with a host of premium clients, including local company Aston Martin on their soon to be launched all-electric car; the Rapide E and the Valkyrie. This award is a great addition to the remarkable things we have been able to achieve so far and is a testament to the calibre and dedication of the people in the organisation.”
Chair of MKBLP, Dr Philip Smith MBE said: “This year’s awards represented a further celebration of the fantastic success of the business community we have in Milton Keynes, and the world leading skills, education opportunities and facilities, including the Open University, Cranfield University, the University of Buckingham and the MK College, all of whom are helping to pave the way for MKBAA winners of the future.”
