At its factory in Vendargues, Electric Motion is developing and manufacturing off-road electric motorcycles, now selling in thirty countries. With 60% growth in 2019, the innovative industrial company and its staff of fourteen plan to move even faster.
Positive Industry in actionThe company’s technological, industrial, and commercial gamble was not always a sure thing. “I started with a blank slate,” remembers Philippe Aresten.
The fourteen-person team – all motorcycle fans – are divided among the engineering office, process office, production, and procurement (it takes 377 parts to make a motorcycle). “I took another gamble,” admits Philippe Aresten. “I placed my trust in young people.”
“People told me that I was crazy and that it would never work! But I was born with a desire to innovate. 100% of our technologies are designed within the company. It’s important to keep one step ahead.”
His company is a perfect illustration of the Positive Industry concept promoted by Montpellier Méditerranée Métropole that permeates his territory, innovative and responsible. Electric Motion plans to hire four or five more people in 2021.
