The company values of Zikodrive Motor Controllers
5:1 Pay Structure
The owners, shareholders and Directors will never receive more than 5 times the lowest paid full time staff at the company.
A commitment to UK manufacturing
All Zikodrive Motor Controllers are designed and manufactured in the UK. This is to ensure fast lead times and high quality workmanship but also because we are passionate about the opportunities that can be created by having socially responsible manufacturing businesses in the UK. We have seen the damage wrought by the decline of the last wave of major industrial innovation in the UK and are keen to play our own miniscule part in replacing some of the industry and pride lost during this time in the North of the UK.
NOTE: Unfortunately, we have been unable to source UK manufactured motors which work within our business model but we are open to any discussions from interested parties who may be able to support this.
We are committed to being environmentally responsible. We limit travel as much as possible in order to reduce our carbon footprint. We also source goods as locally as is possible in order to reduce the distance travelled by our components.
Fairness and genuine interest in new development
We recognise that any new development involves risk. We have seen many projects fail because interested parties are unable to find the right way to work together. Where a project involves commercial risk we endeavour to develop models which are fair for all parties and which will share risk. The motivation for this is simple. By working together and building trust we believe that we can be part of an innovative and developing economy.
No tacit acceptance of labour exploitation or environmental damage
We do everything possible to ensure that we do not work with or tacitly support labour exploitation or environmental damage through the business partners we work with.
We strive to work in as socially responsible a way as possible. The world is changing and we believe that business needs to change to reflect this.
