Kier Supports Plug-in Vehicle Charging

Company News, Transport & Logistics, EMEA
Electric vehicle charging provider Pod Point has won a three-year supplier agreement with Kier.


The agreement will see Pod Point provide chargepoint installations at Kier offices across the UK, including six twin 7kW charge points at its UK headquarters in Sandy, Bedfordshire. To support the growing number of its employees opting to drive plug-in vehicles, the partnership will also assist with the provision of domestic charge points.


In addition, Kier has also carried out several successful trials of electric vans for its commercial fleet.


Anthony Parish, group director of Fleet for Kier, said: “More and more of our workforce are interested in and opting to drive electric cars and we are delighted to support this movement by working with Pod Point as one of our preferred suppliers to install charging points across the country.


“We are committed to offering travel solutions that enable our diverse business and workforce to conduct its work in an environmentally responsible manner and it supports our overall company vision and strategy to reduce our use of energy 30%, by 2030.”


Erik Fairbairn, CEO and founder of Pod Point, said: “It’s always a privilege to work with a company that’s involved in the kind of large scale, prestigious projects that Kier is synonymous with. At Pod Point we’ve launched some exciting products to support largescale chargepoint installations, such as our Array Charging load balancing system. To be chosen as a preferred supplier by companies like Kier is testament to our product innovation and dedication to offering the best possible customer experience.”
