Installed at Carlton Packaging, four Chargemaster 7kW fast chargers, providing eight charge sockets in total, are already being used by the company’s plug-in vehicles, which are used for travelling to client meetings.

Carlton Packaging director, Alan Magee, said: “We recognise the need for sustainable development and continually aim to improve the environmental effect of our activities. We are focused on reducing our emissions, which led us to introduce electric vehicles into our fleet, and installing EV charging points allows us to get the maximum environmental benefit from them.

“Following Milton Keynes becoming one of the UK’s first Go Ultra Low Cities, and the opening of our latest 65,000 square-foot distribution centre, we were keen to work with Milton Keynes Council to become one of the first companies to offer workplace charging to our employees.”

David Martell, CEO of Chargemaster, added: “We have seen a dramatic expansion in the number of businesses looking to install charging points at their premises, and any business not already investigating them will soon feel left behind.”
