EVBox Group, a leading provider of intelligent electric vehicle (EV) charging solutions, will provide us with over 60 regular (AC) and fast (DC) charging stations. This marks the start of a partnership that will help us in transitioning our company fleet to zero-emission cars.

We have begun a global transition program with charging stations being installed across multiple manufacturing sites in Ireland and the UK. As part of its Planet Passionate program, we set a goal of operating zero-emission cars by 2025. To help make this a reality, EV charging stations are being installed at our offices and manufacturing sites.
 

A shared vision for a sustainable future

Both the EVBox Group and ourselves share a goal of establishing a more sustainable future, with the wellbeing of people and the planet at the heart of this vision. We are committed to creating products that save energy and carbon as the building industry plays a vital role in combating climate change. In actioning the transition of our company fleet to zero emission cars, EVBox will help by offering a full range of regular and fast charging solutions tailored to our needs.
 
EVBox will supply both AC and DC charging solutions, being installed initially at our IKON innovation centre and global headquarters site in Ireland. This package will be comprised of EVBox Troniq 50 stations, double EVBox BusinessLine stations, and EVBox Iqon stations. We will also provide employees with EVBox Elvi residential stations so company cars can be charged at home.

I’m happy to say that EVBox is helping Kingspan to reach its goal of transitioning their company fleet to zero-emission cars, with our expertise in every area of EV charging—be it regular AC or fast DC charging—allowing us to make EV charging as easy as possible for Kingspan’s corporate drivers.”
