About Deep Sea Electronics Ltd:

Deep Sea Electronics Ltd was founded in 1975 in North Yorkshire, England, originally creating communications equipment for the offshore diving industry. In the late 1970s the company diversified into generator control technologies and has been at the forefront of its markets ever since.

Today the company designs and manufactures all products from its state-of-the-art head office manufacturing facility in Hunmanby, UK. Technologies include single and multi-set generator controllers, programmable displays and controllers for vehicles and off-highway machinery, compact and intelligent battery chargers and automatic transfer switch controllers. The company has established a global reputation for making complex technology simple for installers and operators to work with at all times.


MOTORTECH GmbH was founded in 1988 in Celle near Hanover. Initially the company was a service and trade enterprise, which specialised in engine replacement parts and stationary gas engine accessories. Today, the company is amongst the most efficient system suppliers in the industry and offers customers a complete product range for all popular gas engines. For all brands.  For all types of gas.

Several in-house developments round off the MOTORTECH range and provide increased operational safety, better environmental impact, longer intervals between maintenance, longer overall life, and higher engine cost-effectiveness.
