Launched in 2008, Sidertech’s main business focuses on engineering, manufacturing and services for steel production plants located in Latin America.
As part of the programme for local manufacturing implementation, in 2012 Sidertech started producing metal components for motorcycles. Today, the company is using its expertise to develop an electric four-wheel vehicle that, thanks to its flexible design, can be deployed ideal for multiple uses. With a high torque to climb Quito’s steep streets (up to 20%) and long-lasting batteries, Sidertech’s vehicles can be used for cargo, food truck, deliveries, maintenance, trash collection, industrial logistic, private security, and much more. Developed to improve quality of life in cities, Sidertech’s four-wheelers have a reduced width that would allow them to ride even in bike-lanes. So far, Sidertech has developed an e-quadricycle prototype, for cargo applications. The company is exploring models for passenger transport. In total they will assemble 10 units based on the different prototypes.
“SOLUTIONSplus contributes to a shift in culture and in the vehicle market through information regarding user needs and city characteristics. SIDERTECH has the technology and long-term goals on innovation. So, working collaboratively allows for great synergy and significant change in the local market.”
