We want to engineer the world into a better place

Motor technology is complicated and not properly covered by electronic or mechanical engineering studies. It’s easy to buy a motor, but hard to make it work consistently in end products and applications.

We were founded in 2004 to make sourcing of quality electro-mechanical mechanisms in Asia easier and more reliable for customers with demanding applications. Now, Precision Microdrives is an experienced motor and mechanism designer and manufacturer that customers can trust. 

Our business is built on the strong desire to help guide like-minded organisations through the often complicated process of integrating a miniature motor or mechanism, into their application. 


We want to turn your complex motor problems into reliable and consistent solutions

  • We know how to design miniature motors and mechanisms.
  • We know how to get motors and mechanisms to work as expected in a huge range of applications.
  • We know how to source sub-components cost effectively in Asia.
  • We know how consistently build, test and validate complex assemblies in our Hong Kong factory.

It turned out to be the hard path to become experts in these fields, but we achieved it, and now we can help you avoid the many pitfalls and mistakes that either we made, or observed.

We can deliver motors and mechanisms more efficiently than you can. We can enable you to focus on building the most value and revenue potential into your own application.

Our core values


Design is at the heart of what we do at Precision Microdrives.

Understanding application requirements and developing solutions with consistency, quality and efficiency.

Technical expertise

We have built the knowledge, processes, experience, and infrastructure to overcome the daily challenges that come with designing and manufacturing miniature motors.

We take responsibility for our solutions.

Quality control

Our dedication to quality consistency, focus on improved performance, and continued commitment to investing in advanced testing technology means that our products are validated and reliable.

Precision processes

We are proud to say we are an ISO 9001 trusted designer and manufacturer.

Detailed planning, lifecycle management and statistical controls allow us to support clients to develop, test, validate and manufacture much faster than they could on their own.


Our company culture is built around fostering long-term partnerships, engendering trust and mutual success.

We strive to have honest, open communication and our vision is to demystify the technology around motors. We don’t just provide a solution and walk away. You will receive our continued support.

Managing your risk

We use our proven technology to solve your motor problems, reducing costs and managing your risk through optimised design.
