Jon continued "Our new colleagues from Chargestorm will bring additional expertise to our business, enabling us to develop the most advanced electrical vehicle charging solutions; we want to build upon what they have achieved already within the energy & facilities markets here in Scandinavia. We have proven capability and strong relationships with vehicle manufacturers to enable us to drive the development, manufacture and distribution of products and systems for electric vehicles on a global scale."

Tomas Wolf, Chairman at Chargestorm said “You could say that with Scandinavia being one of the largest market for electric vehicles in the world, it is only right that two Scandinavian companies are joining together to enable global reach of Electrical Vehicle products. The combination of Chargestorm’s cutting edge technology and CTEK’s globally renowned expertise in battery charging means we have increased resource to continue to push the boundaries of research and development to bring to the market new, exciting and innovative products."

Jon Lind said “There are many synergies between the two companies; we have the same core values based on quality, safety, ease of use and maximizing battery performance.
