The National Automotive Parts Association (NAPA), which operates 6,000 auto parts stores and over 17,000 service centers in the US, is collaborating with Qmerit, a provider of EV charging installation services.
NAPA will offer Qmerit’s turnkey EVSE installation services to charger buyers on NAPAonline.com. Customers can request an online estimate for their installation and connect with one of Qmerit’s certified installers. Qmerit’s network, which covers the US and Canada, is comprised of licensed electricians who are insured, background-checked and trained in EVSE installation.
“Alongside our existing commitments to increasing education and training for new technicians, NAPA is also committed to [providing] our network with the parts and accessories most crucial to maintaining an electric vehicle,” said Susan Starnes, VP of Emerging Markets at Genuine Parts Company.
“Combining our platform with the NAPA Network and its services in the aftermarket space will create a whole new channel for reaching consumers and businesses with the suite of services they need to make the transition to electrification easier and more affordable,” said Ken Sapp, Qmerit Senior VP of Business Development.
