Orion Energy Systems, a provider of LED lighting, controls and electrical services, is moving into the EV charging market through the acquisition of Voltrek.
Voltrek will continue to operate with its existing employees as an independent brand.
Voltrek provides turnkey EV charging solutions, from planning and installation to maintenance and management services. It works as a value-added resale partner to EVSE providers.
Voltrek currently has some 3,500 charging ports under management. 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 an ideal fit for Orion’s national accounts and our partner network, as they directly address a growing need expressed by our customers and fit well with our core areas of expertise,” said Orion COO Mike Jenkins. “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 lighting and electrical maintenance solutions and EV charging.”
“As a top-ranked ChargePoint EV charging station VAR and service provider, Voltrek is uniquely positioned to [facilitate] the conversion to electric mobility,” said Kathleen Connors, who will continue to lead Voltrek as President. “The added support of Orion’s customer reach, large partner network, financial resources, and its growing Maintenance Service Group will support our continued growth.”
