EV Connect, a provider of electric vehicle charging solutions, has entered into a joint marketing and product agreement with GE’s Industrial Solutions business.
Under the terms of the agreement, GE will be a preferred charging station supplier of EV Connect, and EV Connect will be a preferred management provider for GE charging stations worldwide.
The agreement also provides EV Connect with direct access to GE’s full line of WattStation and DuraStation EV charging stations, including a perpetual license to access the GE WattStation Connect cloud-based operating platform.
Since April 2014’s announcement by GE regarding open access to the WattStation network, both companies have pursued numerous joint customer opportunities leveraging GE’s highly reliable charge stations, EV Connect’s robust management platform, and the efficient interoperability between all of the components.
“This expanded relationship with GE further solidifies EV Connect’s position as the recognized industry leader in the management of electric vehicle charging stations,” said Jordan Ramer, Founder and President of EV Connect. “Customer demand for a versatile and feature-rich management platform, combined with high-quality equipment, for their charging station infrastructure, is an essential element in the decision-making process. This agreement ensures that customers have efficient access to both.”
“Together with EV Connect, we will be able to provide customers with an innovative, end-to-end solution capable of meeting customers’ everyday EV charging station requirements,” said Seth Cutler, Senior Product Manager, Growth Initiatives for GE’s Industrial Solutions business. “The combination of our products and EV Connect’s service capabilities will help address the growing demands and expectations within the electric vehicle industry.”
