CASE STUDY | AV-Line
INCREASING COMMERCIAL PROPERTY ASSET VALUE THROUGH EV INFRASTRUCTURE
Many property owners are investing in EV infrastructure to maximize rental income, protect their investment and increase property value. Electrical installers, such as CTEK customer AV-Line, are helping their customers to specify and install EV charging solutions to realize these benefits.
AV-Line is large Electrical Contractor working across a variety of specialisms encompassing Electrical Installations, Electrical Vehicle (EV) Charging, Communication, Audio Visual (AV) Technology & Security. With continued growth since its establishment in 1987, AV-Line is committed to delivering a fast, flexible and reliable service to ensure 100% customer satisfaction.
Since 2014, AV-Line has been delivering EV charging solutions for commercial properties, car parks, housing associations and private individuals. Many installations include cloud-based systems to support load balancing, payment, monitoring and reporting systems to meet the needs of commercial or corporate clients.
AV-Line forged a partnership with CTEK back in 2014. CTEK provided AV-Line with technical advice, and support with installations – something that they still do today. AV-Line in-turn has provided CTEK with valuable input for product development and is now a CTEK ‘Technical Partner’ working out in the field, through a service level agreement, delivering service and warranty support.
AV-Line works with many commercial property companies, many of whom are long-term owners looking to maximize their rental income, protect their investment and where possible, increase property value.
Property owners therefore need to ensure that they remain competitive and make their properties an attractive place to work. They need to meet the changing needs of potential and existing tenants in an economic, aesthetic, social, sustainable and environmental way.
And it is the sustainability and environmental aspects driving property owners to invest in EV charging solutions. And by doing so, they are able to increase the value of their property, remain attractive to existing and new tenants, and as a by-product, potentially generate income through charging sessions.
Commercial property owners are therefore looking for complete EV charging solutions that are cost-effective to install and maintain, easy to use, with the option for load balancing, payment, monitoring and reporting capabilities.
For AV-Line, the first EV charging products they always talk about are CTEK products. And that is because when AV-Line recommends CTEK, they know they are delivering their customers technology that they can have confidence in, backed up by first-class technical and after-sales support.
“The first EV charging products we always talk about are CTEK products. And that is because when we recommend CTEK, we know we are delivering our customers technology that they can have confidence in. They have great products and deliver excellent technical support.”
- Thomas Svensson, CEO, AV-Line
Flexibility is a key feature. With a range of single and dual output EV chargers, that are easy to install and maintain, they can also be integrated with CTEK’s load-balancing and monitoring solutions for a complete solution. If property owners have already specified load balancing, payment, monitoring or reporting systems however, this is not a problem, CTEK EV chargers have the added benefit of open integration, making them compatible with all third-party systems.
Thanks to the flexibility of CTEK’s products and solutions, AV-Line is able to confidently recommend a CTEK based solution that will always meet the individual needs of their customers.
The CTEK & AV-Line partnership is built upon mutual trust, understanding and commitment to quality. Through this partnership, AV-Line has delivered solutions to a range of customers including Humlegården Fastigheter AB, Hembla AB, Hemsö Fastighets AB and Skandinaviska Enskilda Banken (SEB) AB.
