Don’t you know who we are?

NO? We’re not offended, in fact we might have been surprised if the answer had been ‘yes’. In reality, you’ve probably never knowingly come into contact with us unless you’re in the electric vehicle or materials handling industry – but it’s almost certain you’ve ridden in or worked with something that’s controlled or charged by us!

2019 has been a year of celebrations for us. In the centre of Northampton since 1974, we are a wholly owned subsidiary of Curtis Instruments Inc., a New York-based 250 million dollar company, employing more than 1,000 people around the world.

Our large, purpose-built facility in the town centre is where we design advanced control system technology for electric vehicles and off-road equipment of all types. In a landscape of uncertainty, we’ve been delighted to announce the expansion of our £20m pound operation in the UK.

Curtis already operates four best-in-class engineering centres in New York, California, Switzerland and China and are now expanding our UK operations by opening a new dedicated UK Engineering Centre in the North East of England.

Having publicised our expansion plans and anniversary celebrations, we were delighted to welcome two prominent local MPs to our premises for a business meeting and tour of the facilities. It’s fair to say that both Michael Ellis and Andrew Lewer enjoyed their time with us, learning about our operations and plans for continued long-term success and growth in a vital and growing industry. And to further underline our year of celebrations, we held our 45th Anniversary Staff Party at Sywell Aerodrome and toasted our longevity with a fantastic cake from Kingsthorpe’s favourite specialty cake maker, Gardner’s, washed down with a few glasses of bubbly.

If you’re interested in learning more about our drivetrain or vehicle control systems, or our battery charger and EV safety lighting range, let us know. We’re always delighted to work with partners in the local area – even if you didn’t know we’ve been here for the last 45 years! Give us a call on 01604 885201, email or visit www.curtisinst.co.uk and learn more before you call.
