Pentaxia Installs POD Points

Pentaxia has installed POD Point electric vehicle charging stations for customers and employees, demonstrating the company's commitment to sustainability and staff welfare.

Two employees have already taken the opportunity to use the POD Point units, enabling them to invest in hybrid vehicles. Additional points will be installed at Pentaxia’s new facility, due to open later this year.

“Like us, our clients in the aerospace and automotive markets are committed to innovation and sustainability, so it’s no surprise that we were keen to embrace the electric car movement," states Stephen Ollier, Managing Director of UK composites manufacturer Pentaxia. "As we grow and build our workforce, I believe we need to do it in a sustainable way, future-proofing our facilities and creating a better community and environment for our employees to work in. I want to help my staff live in a more sustainable way and I hope this decision will help more employees who are thinking about buying a new car think about going green!”

“This is a great time for Pentaxia to invest and demonstrates their forward looking attitude towards technology," adds POD Point’s Marketing Manager Oliver Murphy. "Electric cars have come a long way; zero emission car models are now able to travel more than 100 miles without charging, and they’re getting simpler to use. Our POD Points provide users with an easy-to-use app and dashboard to monitor their energy consumption.”

This installation and contract gives Pentaxia the potential to charge four vehicles simultaneously.
