About Azure Dynamics Corp.

Azure Dynamics Corporation engages in the development and supply of electric and hybrid electric powertrains and vehicle control systems for commercial vehicles in North America. It developed electric and hybrid electric drive technology for the light to heavy duty commercial vehicle category. The company primarily engages in the areas of vehicle controls software, power electronics, electric machine design, vehicle systems engineering and vehicle integration.

The company’s U.S. subsidiary, Azure Dynamics Incorporated owns a 50% interest in ND Solectria LLC, a joint venture partnership with NDNE Real Estate, Inc., a real estate development corporation.


The company developed various powertrain platforms and components for hybrid applications: CitiBus (G1) series hybrid, which has evolved from G1 series hybrid product, for vehicles in the medium-duty weight range of 9,000 to 16,000 lbs GVW; Balance parallel hybrid for the weight category of 10,000 to 19,000 lbs GVW; P2 parallel hybrid for the weight category over 19,000 lbs GVW; LEEP products for commercial utility and vehicle refrigeration; and Force Drive Electric drive systems.

The CitiBus/Balance platforms are used for vehicles in a class which typically deliver urban mail, packages and goods and can also be used in small shuttle bus applications. The P2 product is designed for the larger Class 6/7 trucks and shuttle buses typically used for delivery of larger/heavier loads. The Company controls the design and manufacture of its proprietary power electronics. Azure works closely with designated vehicle upfitters and fleet operators to assure the final product is commercially viable, able to manufactured and certified.

Azure CitiBus 9,000 to 16,000 lbs gross vehicle weight: The CitiBus product is commercially available in delivery van and shuttle bus form. This product is specifically designed for inner-city use and is highly suitable for urban delivery vans and shuttle buses which both have a demanding drive-cycle. Key participants include Workhorse Custom Chassis (part of the Navistar International Group) which provides the chassis platform, Productive Concepts Inc. (PCI) of Union City, Indiana, which provides Azure’s subcontract hybrid chassis modification, and StarTrans, which provides the shuttle bus bodies and distribution channels for shuttle buses.

Balance Parallel Hybrid and Electric Vehicle 10,000 to 19,000 lbs gross vehicle weight: The company's commercial Balance hybrid development program focuses on the Ford E-350 and E-450 commercial vehicle stripped and cab chassis. In February 2008, Azure entered into a supply agreement for hybrid vehicle integration with Utilimaster in Walkarusa, Indiana.

Parallel Hybrid and Electric Vehicle over 19,000 lbs gross vehicle weight (P2): The P2 parallel hybrid system is suitable for delivery vans and busses (Class 6 and 7).

LEEP products for commercial vehicle and refrigeration: Electric drive solutions consist of Azure’s LEEP and electric drive components. The product name LEEP refers to all systems whereby clean electric power is generated off the vehicles’ power train to supply a range of auxiliary systems (i.e. pumps, refrigeration, etc.) and export power applications. The LEEP system delivers improvements in fuel utilization and emission levels by optimizing the energy management between the engine and an energy storage system. The LEEP system has a range of applications beyond refrigeration, including utility and telecom truck applications.

In 2007, the company entered into a supply agreement with Kidron. The supply agreement encompasses branding, marketing and sale of Azure’s LEEP Freeze systems throughout the North American refrigerated truck body market. Pursuant to the supply agreement, Azure provides Kidron with LEEP Freeze systems for integration into their cold plate refrigerated truck and truck body units.

In 2008, the company executed a MOU with Altec Industries, Inc. (Altec) to develop a LEEP system for use in utility and telecom truck markets. Altec would market, sell and service the LEEP Lift systems through their existing sales distribution and service channels.

Force Drive Electric drive systems: In 2007, the company signed a supply agreement with EAE. Azure’s scope of supply for the drive systems included the motor, controller, gearbox and DC/DC converters. EAE was to complete the conversions and locally source the other integration components.

SWOT Analysis

SWOT, which stands for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats, is an analytical framework that identifies the internal and external factors that are favorable and unfavorable for a company.

Enhanced SWOT Analysis

Enhanced SWOT is a 3×3 grid that arranges strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats into one scheme:

  • How to use the strengths to take advantage of the opportunities?
  • How to use the strengths to reduce likelihood and impact of the threats?
  • How to overcome the weaknesses that obstruct taking advantage of the opportunities?
  • How to overcome the weaknesses that can make the threats a reality?

Upon answering these questions a company can develop a project plan to improve its business performance.

PESTEL Analysis

PESTEL (also termed as PESTLE) is an ideal tool to strategically analyze what influence different outside factors – political, economic, sociocultural, technological, environmental and legal – exert on a business to later chart its long term targets.

Being part of the external analysis when carrying out a strategic assessment or performing a market study, PESTEL gives an overview of diverse macro-environmental factors that any company should thoughtfully consider. By perceiving these outside environments, businesses can maximally benefit from the opportunities while minimizing the threats to the organization.

Key Factors Examined by PESTEL Analysis:

  • Political – What opportunities and pressures are brought by political bodies and what is the degree of public regulations’ impact on the business?
  • Economic – What economic policies, trends and structures are expected to affect the organization, what is this influence’s degree?
  • Sociological – What cultural and societal aspects will work upon the demand for the business’s products and operations?
  • Technological – What impact do the technological aspects, innovations, incentives and barriers have on the organization?
  • Environmental – What environmental and ecological facets, both locally and farther afield, are likely to predetermine the business?
  • Legal – What laws and legislation will exert influence on the style the business is carried out?

IFE, EFE, IE Matrices

The Internal Factor Evaluation matrix (IFE matrix) is a strategic management tool helping audit or evaluate major weaknesses and strengths in a business’s functional areas. In addition, IFE matrix serves as a basis for identifying and assessing relationships amongst those areas. The IFE matrix is utilised in strategy formulation.

The External Factor Evaluation matrix (EFE matrix) is a tool of strategic management that is typically utilised to assess current market conditions. It is an ideal instrument for visualising and prioritising the threats and opportunities a firm is facing.

The essential difference between the above mentioned matrices lies in the type of factors incorporated in the model; whilst the latter is engaged in internal factors, the former deals exceptionally with external factors – those exposed to social, political, economic, legal, etc. external forces.

Being a continuation of the EFE matrix and IFE matrix models, the Internal External matrix (IE matrix) rests upon an investigation of external and internal business factors integrated into one suggestive model.

Porter Five Forces Analysis

The Porter’s five forces analysis studies the industry of operation and helps the company find new sources of competitive advantage. The analysis surveys an industry through five major questions:

  1. What composes a threat of substitute products and services?
  2. Is there a threat of new competitors entering the market?
  3. What is the intensity of competitive rivalry?
  4. How big is the bargaining power of buyers?
  5. How significant is the bargaining power of suppliers?

VRIO Analysis

VRIO stands for Value, Rarity, Imitability, Organization. This analysis helps to evaluate all company’s resources and capabilities and bring them together into one aggregate table that includes:

  • Tangible resources
    • Financial
    • Physical
    • Technological
    • Organizational
  • Intangible resources
    • Human
    • Innovation and Creativity
    • Reputation
  • Organizational capabilities

The result of the analysis gives a clear picture of company’s competitive and economic implications, answering the questions if the resources mentioned above are:

  • Valuable?
  • Rare?
  • Costly to imitate?
  • Organized properly?
