ChargedEV bought by Redde Northgate to bolster EV proposition

ChargedEV, a provider of electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure, has been bought by the parent company of Northgate Vehicle Hire, Redde Northgate, for an undisclosed sum.

Northgate supplies LCV flexible hire solutions and support services to British businesses, and says it is committed to supporting its customers as they transition to EVs.

The company has already adapted its workshops for EVs and is installing charging infrastructure across its network of 70-plus locations. It has also professionally trained over 300 technicians on EVs

ChargedEV has delivered more than 18,000 domestic and workplace EV charging installations across the UK.

The acquisition marks an important step forward in Northgate's strategy to support customers in phasing out petrol and diesel vehicles and switching to electric fleets, it says.

Neil McCrossan, sales and marketing director of Northgate Vehicle Hire, explained: "We're excited that this acquisition will further enhance the support and advice our teams can give customers on choosing the correct vehicles, charging infrastructure, and power and supply solutions to support electric fleets.

"We believe that our turnkey solution, offering expert guidance in business-critical areas, and complemented by Northgate's 40 years' leadership in providing flexible LCV solutions, offers an unrivalled way for customers to future-proof their fleets."

Mark Pymm, managing director of ChargedEV, added: "We are thrilled to join Northgate, which will allow us accelerate our reach and services, and support the UK's drive towards electrification of van fleets at a critical time for industry."
