Autocraft Solutions Group is one of Europe’s leading OEM partners for the manufacture and remanufacture of outsourced IC engines and EV batteries, and future propulsion solutions to a global market. Our unique selling point is helping our customers outsource to us their non-core operations, by providing top OEM quality production, and saving them investment and headaches involved with keeping these operations in-house. This allows them to free up their factory space, people and investment, and helps them to focus on what they do best.
Combining the expertise at three sites across the UK, Autocraft Solutions Group provides an array of engineering services to the global OEMs and their supply chains. Our ethos is to provide innovative engineering solutions to help our customers stay ahead. We do this by providing innovative solutions in 2 main areas:
Transition of ICE to EV:
As Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) demand from the automotive sector decreases globally due to the success of hybrid and EV technology and political changes to the sale of ICE vehicles around the globe, we help you to transition to EV through the outsourcing to us of niche IC engine building, modification and conversion, plus machined components such as cylinder heads and blocks. We offer EV battery assembly in niche volume, enabling smaller automotive manufacturers to outsource battery pack production to us and avoid having to install costly production lines in-house. We can also support with the machining of EV components such as motor casings.
Sustainability and Circular Economy:
As OEMs become more environmentally conscious and aware of the end-of-life regulations, our remanufacturing service is more popular than ever. To help drive down your warranty costs, firstly we work with you at design stage to implement ‘design for reman’, ensuring the engine, EV battery pack or rear drive unit is designed with remanufacture in mind, to maximise the recoverable material to return to a like-new state, and minimise the value of components to recycling or landfill. Furthermore, we can help you with engine and EV battery warranty teardowns and auditing, identifying failing components and making recommendations for changes to components or design to further drive down your warranty bill, and drive up your customer satisfaction.
We help you to promote sustainability and the circular economy, in particular through our 5R Solution for EV batteries, where we identify non-automotive 2nd life usage for battery modules no longer meeting automotive State-of-Health (SOH) standards, such as solar-energy storage.
