EMS Enterprise House

About Us

Founded in 1985, EMS has established itself as the UK and Ireland’s leading supplier of high quality precision small DC motors and linear actuators. Our 40,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility in Dorset acts as a hub for both our experienced distribution service, supplying drive systems from eight different partners, and for our own advanced custom design capabilities.

Our drive system partners

We partner with a diverse range of drive system manufacturers to support UK manufacturers with a range of mechanical solutions. Core products include iron-core DC motors from KAG, stepper motors and brushed DC motors from Nidec Servo, as well as brushed and brushless gear motors from Nidec Motors & Actuators. In addition, we distribute high quality linear actuators and telescopic columns from Ewellix and Mingardi, which are used extensively in medical, healthcare, agriculture, building automation and many other industries.

A core component of EMS’s offering is our partnership with FAULHABER, for which we are the UK and Ireland’s official supplier. As one of Europe’s most renowned producers of micro drive systems, EMS offers an extensive range of FAULHABER brushed and brushless DC motors. Additionally, in 2023, EMS partnered with Bühler Motor to offer its vast catalogue of brushed and brushless DC motors, micro drives and encoders to the UK market for the first time.  

Custom drive system design

In addition to our extensive distribution capabilities, EMS offers design engineers a complete service through custom drive system design.

Supporting applications such as automotive, medical, metrology, aerospace, healthcare and more, our bespoke manufacturing capabilities include the design and manufacture of custom gearboxes, and our engineering team can work closely with the customer to develop bespoke alternatives depending on their needs.

Our facility

Our growth has been maintained with repeated expansion and capital investment, resulting in the development of our modern 40,000 square foot facility. Within this, we have a dedicated machine shop equipped with the latest CNC machine tools and a gear cutting suite, as well as a substantial assembly area.

Located across two sites, our head office, design and manufacturing facility are based in Poole, Dorset and sales, administration and warehousing is located in Aldermaston, Berkshire.

As a result of our commitment to quality and service, both sites are accredited for EN ISO9001:2015 — the international standard that defines the requirements for a Quality Management System (QMS). This demonstrates that EMS upholds the ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and regulatory requirements.
