GB Electrical employs approximately 70 specialist staff nationwide and this will grow following the acquisition, in line with the expansion of the electric vehicle charging point market. It has vast experience in installing anything from domestic installations to multi standard rapid chargers.
To date, Chargemaster has used a number of external subcontractors for its installation work and this move will enable it to increase its capacity and quality of installation service through GB Electrical to accommodate the growing market.
The acquisition allows Chargemaster to offer its customers a unique, value-for-money, end-to-end proposition together with the highest level of service quality.
Chargemaster is the only charge point supplier that controls the value chain from charge point design to the installation and commissioning of the units. It designs, develops, manufactures and now carries out installation in-house of its charging points.
David Martell, chief executive of Chargemaster, commented: ‘We are delighted to be able to offer our customers a seamless end-to-end service. GB Electrical has many years’ experience in the EV market and offer a national footprint enabling us to provide the highest level of service while offering customers unrivalled value for money.’
Over the last year the market for electric vehicles has grown very significantly and rapid growth in the UK is expected.
