Auto Windscreens is installing EV charge points at its vehicle glass repair locations across the UK, working with unit installers ChargedEV to complete the roll-out.
The company’s Chesterfield headquarters now has three 7.4 kW dual charge points, with several more locations set to go live in the next few weeks. This includes Auto Windscreens’ flagship hub in Milton Keynes.
Also based in Chesterfield, ChargedEV is currently working at sites in Cardiff, Coventry, Crayford, Leed, Leicester, and Tunbridge Wells, with the units set to support the increasingly electrified Auto Windscreens fleet.
Shaun Atton, Auto Windscreens’ Fleet Manager, said: “ChargedEV approached us and offered an EV charging solution that we felt would work effectively across our expanding fitting hub network. The charge points will be available for customer use and support our plans to introduce more electric and hybrid vehicles to our fleet, reducing our carbon footprint.”
Rich Hickerman, Business Development Manager at ChargedEV, said: “When I heard that Auto Windscreens were looking at electrifying their fleet, I thought I’d test the water and get in touch to see if we could assist and set them up with a charging infrastructure. We listened to what Shaun was looking for and came up with a solution that suited Auto Windscreens, their fleet and their customers.
