Sevcon, a world leader in the design, manufacture and marketing of electric motor control systems for electrically powered vehicles and Flight Systems Industrial Products (FSIP), a leading provider of remanufacturing service for electric vehicle control systems, have agreed to an Aftermarket Service Agreement, effective immediately. Under the terms of the agreement, FSIP will be the exclusive remanufacturer of Sevcon electric motor control systems in the US. Sevcon and FSIP will begin sharing data, test capabilities and other important control functions to further develop this partnership. Sevcon has been at the forefront of electric vehicle control technology since established in 1961. They have continually pushed the boundaries of technology, delivering new products that match the need for greater power and control. Working alongside other world-class suppliers and OEMs, Sevcon is challenging technological boundaries as demand grows to generate greater power
and efficiency from smaller, lighter components. The design of their motor controllers now complements and integrates with other electric vehicle components to offer the best possible performance and value to a vehicle, bike or scooter. FSIP has been the leading remanufacturer of industrial controls for over 40 years, providing a remanufactured product with superior quality, reliability and turnaround. With more than 6,000 part numbers available, the company annually remanufactures over 45,000 controls used on electric and gas-powered vehicles, primarily forklifts, aerial lifts, personnel carriers and golf carts, along with scrubber/sweepers, walkies, tuggers, wire guidance systems, scooters, mining cars and electric boats. These controls include SCR, transistorized, separately excited, AC, traction and pump controls, DC/DC converters, accelerators, dash displays, control handles, battery discharge indicators, vehicle control units utilizing CAN bus, accessory cards and ECUs for combustion engines. For FSIP, this agreement aligns with the strategic focus of nurturing alliances with industry-leading manufacturers of electric vehicle components and systems to provide the most recent upgrades to the control hardware and software. These alliances enable FSIP to truly remanufacture the control and not just repair it or “swap it out” as may be the case with other repair facilities. It also provides the market with an alternative to new, while maintaining the integrity of the control as a remanufactured product. This partnership will bring additional value and support to Sevcon’s OEM customer’s aftermarket businesses in North America. These customers will have ready access to a lower-cost, high-quality remanufactured control solution through FSIP, directly supported by Sevcon through revision control and testing.
