Mitie Acquires Rock Power Connections to Boost EV Offering

Mitie Acquires Rock Power Connections to Boost EV Offering
01 November 2021
 

Mitie has acquired Rock Power Connections Limited, an independent connection provider, to add to its technical services division.

Rock Power Connections specialises in the design and installation of new high voltage electricity supplies, the renewal of electrical assets up to 132kV and electric vehicle (EV) charge points.

Rock’s co-founders Matt Crampton and Kev Sankar will both be joining Mitie.

 

Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure 

 

Through the acquisition, Mitie will strengthen its high voltage, new connections and electric vehicle (EV) capabilities, enabling it to provide new connections to the electric grid, high voltage assets renewals, and end-to-end electric vehicle charging infrastructure solutions for both new and existing clients.

The business will be integrated into Mitie’s Technical Services division, supporting its broader Plan Zero and Green Projects services. 

This announcement follows the recent acquisition of Dael Ventures UK in August 2021 which boosts Mitie’s Telecoms service offering.

Carlo Alloni, Managing Director, Technical Services and Integrated Facilities Management, Mitie, said: “With the sale of new petrol and diesel cars set to end by 2030, the UK’s transition to electric vehicles will accelerate over the next decade. However, to ensure that the move to zero-carbon transport is a success, it is vital we have the right infrastructure in place to support rapid charging at scale.

“This acquisition of Rock Power Connections Limited will allow us to build on our EV and high voltage power capabilities which, combined with our technical services expertise and national scale, will enable us to further support both Mitie and Rock customers with their decarbonisation journeys.”
