Auto Windscreens introduces EV charging across network

Auto Windscreens has introduced EV charging points across its network in what it believes to be a UK first, for a vehicle glass repair company.

Three 7.4kW dual charging points have been installed at its Chesterfield headquarters, with several more locations going live over the next few weeks, including its Milton Keynes-based fitting hub.

Auto Windscreens’ fleet manager Shaun Atton 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.”

ChargedEV’s business development manager Rich Hickerman 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.”

The nationwide installation is currently in progress with sites in Cardiff, Coventry, Crayford, Leeds, Leicester and Tunbridge Wells all being looked at presently.
