The adoption of the 2021 Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill, which will aid in funding the buildout, and the likelihood that more than 1.5 million charging stations will be required by 2030 make this alliance particularly advantageous.
The demand for EV Blocks precast foundations in the UK is being driven by a patent-pending design that is suitable for almost all Level 2 charger installations thanks to its universal top plate and side apertures for conduit installation.
Due to its precast nature, installation is simpler and doesn’t require the time needed to lay and cure concrete foundations on-site. Precast blocks are made in advance in authorised facilities and arrive ready for installation, saving days of labour and the lead time required for raw material orders.
Recon is a precast product licensor with established light pole base and retaining wall solutions as well as a vast global network of knowledgeable precast producers, with a strong concentration in North America.
EV Blocks is set to become the industry standard in EV charger foundations in the upcoming months as Recon extends its cutting-edge production solutions to precast concrete producers across North America.
Mike Klotthor, Recon’s President said, “We are incredibly excited about this new product. As EV charging infrastructure buildout accelerates, the need for reliable solutions will be critical. That’s where EV Blocks really shines. By combining a readily available product with efficient installation, installers will be able to stay on schedule and complete more jobs.”
Trevor Palmer, Director of EV Blocks, Ltd, adds, “The partnership with Recon makes our journey to help more EV installers very scalable. I understand many of the challenges installers face in the field, and developed EV Blocks with them in mind. Expanding into North America with multiple production locations is a fantastic milestone and we are looking forward to working with Recon going forward.”
