Rotron Rotary Engines



Rotron have revolutionised rotary technology, and have been at the forefront of rotary engine design since the creation of its first Rotron engine; a specialised high-altitude single-rotor powerplant that reached the ‘ceiling of the impossible’ at over 29,000ft in the extreme conditions of Mount Everest - a feat that many said could not be done. Today we continue our proud tradition of defying convention: still leading the way in the field of rotary technology, still an innovator and still committed to developing new solutions that offer real, measurable results across diverse platforms.

We Innovate

Rotron have a hugely valuable in-house resource: our engineers. It is their passion, expertise and creativity that has ensured the development of our innovative technologies and processes; exploiting our highly versatile and widely capable manufacturing and production facilities to offer engine solutions with groundbreaking levels of performance combined with high levels of efficiency and reliability. Our engineers are some of the brightest and best and we seek to inspire the next generation by participating in impactful educational placement schemes, while providing high quality employment and training for our staff. By investing significantly in ongoing R&D and infrastructure we are able to continually develop new technologies which improve efficiency and contribute to the enhanced performance of critical applications for our customers.

We Listen & Partner

Before we embark on any project, we must know why we are doing it and then be able to measure its impact and evaluate its success. Our approach is to “listen and partner”, rather than “analyse and tell”. This allows us to build a deeper trust based relationship, foster better engagement and create the optimum environment for productive collaboration. We work with you to help unleash the energy and creativity across all levels of the project and to develop solutions project stakeholders are excited by and can commit to. We believe in setting challenging targets, to drive ourselves on and ensure we deliver results.

We Adapt

To meet the high demands of our customers we have to be able to react quickly and effectively. This demands a design and manufacturing system which can respond rapidly to change, with the ability to run quickly through multiple design iterations to achieve optimum functionality and performance. Our first-class production facility deploys the best manufacturing techniques and is ideally suited to short prototype runs, medium sized batches and full-scale production.

We Deliver

To date, Rotron has completed and delivered one-off bespoke demonstration propulsion systems and engines for Universities, Aviation Corporations and Governments worldwide, as well as small and large batch engine designs. Whether the application has required one of our existing engine range, a uniquely modified ‘off-the-shelf’ engine or a completely new bespoke engine, our customers have found that the results exceed the perceived return on investment.
