Element's Electrifying Leap: Embracing Sustainability with CTEK EV Charging Stations
Element, a pivotal player in the materials testing and calibration sector, has recently taken a significant step towards environmental sustainability by installing CTEK's CHARGESTORM® CONNECTED 2 EV charging stations at their Linköping facility. This strategic move underlines Element's commitment to green practices and modern technology.
The Element Materials Technology Group is a global provider of services in measurement technology, inspection, and materials testing. Element’s operations in Sweden comprises Element Metech AB (metrological technology and calibration) and Element Materials Technology AB (materials technology and testing), headquartered in Linköping. Recently, the company celebrated the inauguration of a state-of-the-art laboratory in Linköping, which is one of Element's largest facilities. This development solidifies their position as a leader in material and metrological technology.
As Element expanded its operations, the need for a sustainable and efficient transport solution for its employees and visitors became apparent. With an increasing number of staff using electric vehicles (EVs), the company faced the challenge of providing adequate charging infrastructure.
Element chose CTEK's CHARGESTORM® CONNECTED 2 charging stations for their installation needs. These stations, compatible with electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles, offer dual outlets for simultaneous charging. Known for their quality, safety and efficiency, these stations reflect Element's dedication to innovation and sustainability.
The installation of these charging stations has been met with overwhelmingly positive feedback. Björn Kullman, Division Director at Element Sweden, stated,
"The seamless integration of CTEK's charging stations has elevated our facilities, aligning with our environmental goals while providing practical benefits to our staff and guests. The dual-outlet functionality and Parkster's streamlined payment system have been particularly well-received."
Testimonials from Element's EV drivers further underscore the impact. One employee shared; "Having access to reliable charging at work has made my daily commute more sustainable and convenient." Another added; "The installation of twelve EV charging outlets ensures no wait times, greatly improving the overall workplace experience by allowing multiple vehicles to charge at once."
Element's decision to install twelve CTEK CHARGESTORM® CONNECTED 2 EV chargers prominently in front of their beautiful office and main entrance is a clear statement in itself. This investment signifies more than just a facility upgrade; it represents their dedication to environmental stewardship and employee satisfaction. By allowing simultaneous charging with no wait times, this initiative not only bolsters Element's green initiatives but also establishes a standard for corporate responsibility in adopting sustainable technologies.
