ElectroJet designs and produces low-cost electronic engine controls for applications including motorcycles, scooters and lawn mowers. The ElectroJet product offers emissions reductions, regulatory compliance and greater fuel efficiency than carburetion. Small engines, such as those used in lawn mowers, are some of the largest polluters in the United States. Motorcycles and scooters are the mainstay of transportation in China and India where they currently manufacture in excess of 30 million motorcycles per year, contributing to the significant air quality issues in the region. With the help of ElectroJet, these products will consume less energy, perform better and pollute less.
Over five years ago, ElectroJet’s founder recognized that recreational markets had a desire for EFI technologies to improve performance, but did not have the ability to change engine castings to accommodate the traditional sensor set that accompanies automotive EFI technology. Traditional automotive electronic engine controls could not be implemented on engines without modifications to the engine castings themselves. In December 2002, the initial ElectroJet concepts emerged, allowing an engine to be effectively electronically controlled without changing a single feature on the engine or its castings. Because of its advanced intellectual property, ElectroJet is unique in its positioning within the market in terms of performance and price.
Currently, ElectroJet serves customers in the recreational vehicle, utility engine, military and Asian transportation industries. ElectroJet has fitted its patented technologies to numerous vehicle applications and has the capabilities to integrate advanced engine controls at a much lower cost than competitors.
ElectroJet has invested in small engine-specific dynamometer and emissions testing equipment in our Brighton, Mich., USA location. This equipment allows the ElectroJet team to develop products from concept to production under one roof. ElectroJet has the ability to test products to any global emissions standard to prove the effectiveness of the product. The company designs the electronic hardware, system packaging, software, and development tools in-house and is capable of responding to customer needs in a flexible, time efficient manner.
ElectroJet currently occupies two facilities in Brighton, Mich., totaling 7,000 square feet. These facilities include office space, a machine shop, general shop space, three dynamometers and emissions testing equipment. ElectroJet tests and develops products in-house for a global customer base.

ElectroJet CEO Kyle Schwulst founded ElectroJet in 2003 after achieving the first of many patents to reduce the sensor set and cost of electronic engine controls. Prior to founding ElectroJet, Schwulst held positions in product development, research and development, and manufacturing with Arctic Cat, Visteon Corporation and Ford Motor Company.
At ElectroJet, Schwulst grew the company from a small group of friends working in a Michigan pole barn, to a burgeoning office in the Brighton, Mich., area that is taking its products global. The ElectroJet products were originally targeted to North American manufacturers, however the company has discovered a more urgent need from foreign manufacturers of motorcycles and small vehicles. The bulk of ElectroJet’s customers reside outside the United States.
The company was founded on a group of people who just enjoyed what they were working on. Although the company has been expanding, it maintains its founder’s principles – hard work, dedication and a passion for problem solving. ElectroJet is planning to expand its facilities further, in addition to tripling its employee base over the next year.
Investment – Michigan Ties:
Much of the investment to grow ElectroJet has come from Michigan sources, with significant funding from the State of Michigan’s 21st Century Jobs Fund and Automation Alley’s Seed Fund. Not only has Michigan provided ElectroJet an environment in which to grow, thrive and maintain continued support – but also its founder and many of his employees received their degrees from Kettering University, formerly General Motors’ Institute, a university that is highly-regarded for its cooperative education and hands-on techniques.
