Phillips Machine Tools has a very rewarding relationship with the Ashwa Racing team of the Rashtriya Vidyalaya College of Engineering (RVCE), Belagavi.This is an exemplary relationship of an industry-institute partnership across states.
The Phillips Machine Tools-Ashwa Racing relationship commenced in August 2016 when Mrs. Miranda met the Ashwa Racing team in Mumbai. Phillips offered sponsorship during the Design phase of the 2017 Hybrid Racecar project. The team attained the second position in the annual Formula Hybrid 2017 event held in New Hampshire, US. Presently, Phillips is a Silver sponsor of the team’s Hybrid Racecar Vehicle project for the 2018 race season.
Phillips provided the Ashwa team relevant components that were machined on world-class machining centers from HAAS. The Ashwa team was free to design innovatively and then rely completely on Phillips for highest quality and precision of the components.
Phillips encouraged the young Ashwa team to continue on its ambitious path in the field of engineering, mobility and racing excellence. Ashwa Racing epitomizes how frugal, innovative engineering combined with dedication, perseverance and a commitment to be the best helped an Indian team achieve global recognition.
The Ashwa team would like to express its gratitude to the PHILLIPS community for supporting their young, talented engineers in their quest to become the best and showcase India on a global stage. The team is short of words to appreciate Phillips for becoming a part of the Ashwa family.
