CTEK, the leading global brand in vehicle charging solutions, is supporting its expanding global presence with a new partnership in Ireland, with well-established and reputed electrical distributor City Electrical Factors (CEF). 

CTEK’s collaboration with CEF will involve the distribution of CTEK’s extensive range of vehicle charging products and solutions to CEF’s strong and varied customer base throughout its 13 outlets in Ireland.   

This new distribution relationship is key to supporting the rapid global growth of this pioneering vehicle charging brand which, backed by more than 10 years’ experience in the EVSE (electric vehicle supply equipment) market, is now operational throughout Europe.  

CTEK has also recently expanded its UK Energy & Facilities (E&F) team, including the appointment of new Sales Managers Adrian Hopkinson and Ian Beattie, as CTEK continues to reach out to new vertical industries, supporting continued business growth through the provision of future-proofed EV solutions including software applications, load balancing and remote, online system management.   

Commenting on the agreement, Adrian Hopkinson, Sales Manager at CTEK said; “We are really excited about this new relationship. CEF’s ethos of providing products and services of the highest quality to their customers perfectly complements our own. CEF has the perfect experience and customer relationships to position CTEK’s products and technology as complete solutions that meet the changing needs of the market. I believe this relationship is an important step in continuing our business growth with a long-term strategic partnership.” 

Mark McCluggage, Ireland Group Manager at CEF said; “We are excited to broaden our portfolio of charging solutions by partnering with leading European brand CTEK to bring their EV chargers to the Irish Market. Adrian and Ian Beattie’s expertise and knowledge will be an asset to growing the brand in Ireland with CEF. 

“Our goal has always been to provide the best possible products for our customers and CTEK has offered us the opportunity to take on a varied range of charging solutions suited to our customer base, which are not only market leading, but also fit into our long-term vision. I look forward to seeing what the future holds for both parties as a result of this great partnership,”
