EAVX in Ann Arbor and New York’s Unique Electric Solutions (UES) have forged a strategic collaboration to commercialize all-electric vocational work trucks.
EAVX is the newest business unit of JB Poindexter & Co. (JBPCO) in Houston, and collaborates with advanced electric and alternative power chassis producers. UES is a manufacturer of electric vehicle (EV) and fuel cell electric vehicle (FCEV) propulsion systems for commercial fleets, upfitters, and select OEMs.
“Along with our sister business units, our team has proven the ability to produce the best work truck and commercial vehicle bodies and accessories, and we plan to continue bolstering our capabilities by providing alternative energy vehicles through this partnership with UES,” says Mark Hope, COO and general manager of EAVX.
“As our commercial fleet customers develop plans to convert their fleets to EVs, we look forward to working with the most advanced alternative energy chassis producers. Our team is thrilled to have a new partner like UES.”
Through this partnership, EAVX, along with various JBPCO sister business units, will integrate current and next generation walk-in vans, technology, and accessories onto the UES skateboard platform chassis to develop and produce a fully electric commercial vehicle.
“Building on our strong foundation as a leader in repowering existing on-road vehicles, UES is moving forward with our next growth phase by bringing new vehicles to market,” says Joe Ambrosio, CEO of UES. “And what better way to do that than with EAVX and the Morgan Olson teams, the biggest and best in the industry.
“Our unique EV propulsion system, in both battery electric and fuel cell electric versions, is field proven in fleets like UPS, being deployed adjacent to Morgan Olson solutions. This collaboration leveraging each of our evolving product lines is a logical extension of that success.”
