British home electric vehicle charge point manufacturer, Evios, has acquired the prestige home charging business Andersen EV.
The management of Evios says the two brands will co-exist, serving different parts of the EV market and benefitting from shared investment in technology, installation personnel and customer support.
In addition all associated customer support services will be merged with the existing operation at Evios’s headquarters in Bedfordshire.
Installations will be fulfilled via Evios’s in-house installation team which provides full nationwide coverage.
Evios will fully support Andersen’s existing customer base across the UK and will honour any remaining product warranties.
Also, Evios will fulfil more than 200 pending product orders and will continue to operate Andersen-ev.com and the Kønnect+ app, which helps Andersen users manage, change and report on their charging activity.
Evios was launched in April this year by David Martell, former CEO of Chargemaster which was sold to BP in 2018 and is now known as BP Pulse.
Its first unit, the Evios One, is currently being rolled out to UK customers, with plans to launch a business unit, Evios Two during 2023.
The company has so far raised £5.8 million from investors.
Since its launch in 2015 Andersen has been appointed as a recommended installer for Porsche GB and a preferred supplier for Jaguar Land Rover in the UK.
David Martell, Evios Chief Executive, said, “Andersen’s design-led positioning complements our leadership in technology and functionality, and running both brands in parallel will help us to serve an even broader range of customers.
“The Evios One provides intuitive and intelligent home charging for the mainstream while the Andersen charge point serves premium buyers attracted to design and aesthetics.”
