Orion Energy Systems, a provider of LED lighting, electrical controls and services, is entering the electric vehicle charging market with the acquisition of Voltrek.
Voltrek will continue to operate with its existing employees as an independent brand.
Voltrek provides turnkey electric vehicle charging solutions, from planning and installation to maintenance and management services. It functions as a value-added reselling partner for EVSE vendors.
Voltrek currently manages some 3,500 charging ports. The company is an installer for the National Grid Utility Make-Ready program and the Eversource Utility Make-Ready program.
“Voltrek’s turnkey EV charging solutions are a great fit for Orion’s national accounts and our partner network, as they directly address a growing need expressed by our customers and align well with our core areas of expertise. said Mike Jenkins, COO of Orion. “Charging stations are an increasingly important part of a high-quality retail experience, as well as an important amenity for employees and visitors. We see substantial cross-selling potential between our LED electrical lighting and maintenance solutions and electric vehicle charging.
“As a leading VAR and service provider of ChargePoint EV charging stations, Voltrek is uniquely positioned to [facilitate] conversion to electric mobility,” said Kathleen Connors, who will continue to lead Voltrek as President. “Orion’s additional customer support, extensive partner network, financial resources and growing maintenance services group will support our continued growth.”
