Pontis Engineering, which specialises in one-stop-shop engineering solutions for advanced composite niche applications, is collaborating with AMAC to develop next level composite solutions for the e-mobility sector. The two intend to contribute to meeting the global sustainability challenges with high-end, lightweight and energy-saving composite solutions.

The applications range from the development of lightweight over structural battery housings to complete electric vehicles for road, industry, water and air transportation.

Pontis Engineering is an innovative, international engineering company, specialised in one-stop-shop engineering solutions for advanced composite niche applications. The company is renowned for its state-of-the-art, precise and sustainable composite solutions for leading customers across industries including aerospace, wind energy and mobility. Pontis´ developments include the world's largest rotor blades (100+ metres), the new Olympic track bike and solar panels for weather satellites.

AMAC and Pontis aim to support the fast-growing e-mobility market with high-end, lightweight and energy-saving composite solutions in order to make a valuable contribution to global mobility and sustainability challenges.

Sjef van Breugel, managing director of Pontis Engineering, said: “We are ready to bring our 25+ year track record of cutting-edge technology to the dynamic, innovative and sustainable e-mobility sector at full speed. We have strong assets to enable and support the rapid growth of this sector with the best lightweight solutions. With our extensive experience in disruptive engineering for renewable energies, our people, competences and development capacities, we are well positioned to advance the future of mobility.”

Dr. Michael Effing, managing director of AMAC, said: “The core competence of Pontis is to develop lightweight electrical passenger cars reducing the fuel consumption and bringing down CO2 emissions, from feasibility studies over industrial transportation to last-mile-delivery. Pontis differentiates, because they offer tailored cost-efficient solutions, based on a Design for Manufacturing approach. The global market for electrical vehicles is about 4 Mio units in 2020 and is expected to grow to more than 25 Mio EVs by 2030. The increasing adoption of electric buses is likely to propel the growth of commercial vehicles in this period even more. This is a huge opportunity for lightweight composites”.
