Alva was founded to meet the growing global energy demand with renewable technologies. We develop electric generators for production of clean energy and electric motors to convert this energy into motion. Our aim is to accelerate the world’s transition to green energy by making affordable customized electrical machines available to everyone.

Founded in 2016, Alva’s reputation in the industry has grown alongside an ingenious and patented production technology with proven superiority over conventional alternatives. FiberPrinting™ enables production of low-weight, high-efficiency electric motors and generators for a wide range of applications, reflecting our true purpose. We do not just enhance electric motors and generators. We enhance cars, ships and airplanes, UAVs, medical equipment, robots, satellites, and so much more. We enhance the world.
