Mayflex, the Birmingham-based distributor of converged IP security and other products, has introduced six parking bays with EV pod point charging stations for staff and visitors to use, to charge their vehicles. Many of the company fleet car owners have or are making the switch to a hybrid (petrol and electric-power) vehicle, to become more environmentally friendly.
The charging points are accessed via an app, that can be downloaded on arrival at the main reception at Excel House, the Mayflex head offices at Junction Six Industrial Park. There are a total of 3 twin pod points providing the capacity to charge 6 cars at any given time.
Andy Cooper, Chief Operations Officer at Mayflex says: “This is one of the many initiatives introduced by Mayflex to work towards improving the company’s sustainability rating and ISO Accreditations, whilst also helping to reduce the cost of running the company fleet. More of our company car owners are opting for electric, meaning the installation of pod points was something that became a requirement that the business could not afford to ignore. The charging points are situated in a dedicated area of the existing staff and visitor car park and are clearly visible for visitors to Mayflex to locate.”
The company adds that the pod point cloud platform makes it easy to manage access to the Mayflex network, and report on energy usage or CO2 saved.
