Mitie has bolstered its high voltage electrical infrastructure capabilities with the acquisition of connections provider Rock Power Connections.
The deal will enable Mitie to provide new connections to the electric grid, high voltage assets renewals as well as more EV charging infrastructure solutions for customers.
It will also ensure that its customers have the right cabling and power systems in place to support their green goals.
Mitie has already delivered several thousand charging points for a broad range of customers and the announcement follows its acquisition of Dael Ventures UK in August which boosted its telecoms service offering.
It will be integrated into Mitie’s Technical Services division and its co-founders Matt Crampton and Kev Sankar will also join Mitie.
Carlo Alloni, managing director, Technical Services and Integrated Facilities Management, Mitie said, “With the sale of new petrol and diesel cars set to end by 2030, the UK’s transition to electric vehicles will accelerate over the next decade.
“However, to ensure that the move to zero carbon transport is a success, it is vital we have the right infrastructure in place to support rapid charging at scale.
“This acquisition of Rock Power Connections Limited will allow us to build on our EV and high voltage power capabilities which, combined with our technical services expertise and national scale, will enable us to further support both Mitie and Rock customers with their decarbonisation journeys.”
