Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI)

Project Brief

IMI is the professional association for individuals working in the retail motor industry and the authoritative voice of the sector. IMI is transforming the automotive industry by setting, upholding and promoting professionalism. Elmtronics

Scope of Work

Elmtronics worked with the IMI team to understand the needs of the client, what the charging unit would be used for how often these would be used to provide the best solution for their business. Elmtronics went on to then provide the client with a full EV charging infrastructure report, this included smart and reliable equipment at a competitive price. Once the charging plan was approved Elmtronics offered IMI a full turnkey installation to IMI Site which included;

  • Full ground work
  • Electrical installation
  • Commissioning

Service & Maintenance

All installation work was carried out by a qualified Electrician to BS7671 (2015) and IET Code of Practice Standards and completed within a few days. Prior to handover, Elmtronics engineers fully inspected the installation and an electrical certificate was issued, certifying the units were ready for operation. Upon handover, the service was fully briefed and trained on the equipment and given training on their software portal to create reports and monitor live data, whilst enabling Elmtronics to fully remote support.


“The reason that IMI have gone electric is that we want to be responsible for the future in reducing greenhouse gases”.

The way forward is electric cars and slowly but surely more and more people and staff are investing in hybrid cars. 


Customer Overview

“On contacting Elmtronics I had an instant phone call back, the Elmtronics team arranged a time for a survey to be carried out. A friendly member of the team arrived on time on the planned installation day. The survey wasn’t rushed, and all my questions were answered as honestly as possible. The project had the go ahead and the installation team were on site on time every day without fail. All safety measures were taken into account every day before work commenced. The project manager was on hand every day to oversee that I was happy with all undergoing work. I found this level of customer service very reassuring and very professional. The chargers were activated and with one little issue the installation department w ere on scene and everything possible was done to rectify and everyone at Elmtronics kept me informed 24 hour a day to be honest. I’m so grateful for their service”.
