[18/10/2021 Stevenage, UK] Astute Electronics has signed a deal with Kayal to distribute their electric vehicle charging infrastructure across the country, in response to growing government-backed demand for EVs.

As part of the deal, Astute will offer all Kayal charging products across a range of sizes and power-grades for residential, commercial, and public use. Kayal offers a complete range of products for commercial and domestic EV charging station installations including AC, DC & portable EV charging stations, energy storage cabinets, and a full accompaniment of photovoltaic products – connectors, inverter, circuit breakers, combiners, solar panels, and surge protection.

Electrification of transport is official government policy in the UK. The Government recently  announced that electric vehicle chargepoints are set to become the “next great British emblem”. This will require major infrastructure upgrades in homes, car parks, and refuelling stations.

I want to see EV chargepoints that are as iconic and recognisable as the British phone box, London bus or black cab,” UK Transport Secretary, Grant Shapps, has announced. “With less than three months to go until COP26 [UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties], we continue to put the UK at the forefront of the design, manufacture and use of zero emission vehicles and their charging infrastructure, as we build back greener and call on countries around the world to similarly accelerate the transition to electric vehicles.”

Kevin Baker, Franchise Division Manager at Astute Electronics, said,

Partnering with Kayal during this period – an absolute EV revolution – is a very exciting prospect for Astute. As an organisation, we’re branching out into new industries to meet tomorrow’s needs.

In addition, Astute will facilitate full access to Kayal’s high-quality field support assistance building EV infrastructures. All in all, we will provide full value-add services to our customers.”

Kayal was founded in 2002 as Wenzhou Kangyu Electric and has been playing the role of global leader in the field of combination box and photovoltaic module products. The company covers an area of 80,000 square meters, equipped with advanced injection moulding machines, automatic presses, monitoring stations and other facilities. An average of 100,000 combined boxes and 2,000,000 contactors are produced every year. The company has achieved ISO9001, UL, CB, KEMA, SEMKO, TUV, INMETRO, CE, CCC, Rohs and PICC.
