The Smart Actuator Company (SmartAct) welcomed Harriett Baldwin MP, Under Secretary of State for Defence Procurement, to officially open their factory at Advantage Business Park in Spring Lane, Malvern, UK.
MP Harriett Baldwin was one of the first people to see a demonstration of their Patented RIFT Technology in 2011 when the company began operating from a private house in Malvern Wells with just 3 people. From this humble start, The Smart Actuator Company is now one of the fastest growing businesses in Worcestershire, and has 16 people in their team.
The move to the new site gives The Smart Actuator Company the capability to expand production to meet growing demand.
Harriett viewed the process involved in assembling and testing the SmartAct Actuators, and met a range of the skilled team who work to make the Smart Actuator Company a success.
SmartAct began by developing a new range of energy efficient actuators, or motorised valves. Now it is working on projects to extend the technology in to different applications which include traction drives for electric and hybrid vehicles as well as a range of electricity generators.
