Institute of the Motor Industry Logo

The Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI) was founded in 1920, with the aim to establish new skills and knowledge benchmarks for the automotive industry. IMI is the professional body for individuals working in the automotive industry.

The Brief 

IMI contacted us to provide workplace charge points for their staff and visitors in battery electric vehicles (BEVs) and plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHEVs). 

“The reason that IMI has 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.” – David Bignell, Groundsman @ IMI

The Solution 

We worked with the IMI team to understand their needs, including how often the charge points would be used and which specific EV charging products they required.

After visiting their site we provided IMI with a comprehensive EV charging site audit, detailing our recommended plans for their bespoke infrastructure. 

“On contacting Elmtronics I had an instant phone call back, where 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.” 

From this, we installed four Alfen Dual 7kW charge points. 

Following the installation, our engineers carried out a full inspection of the equipment and issued IMI with safety certification. Our team then trained IMI staff on how to use the charge points and Hubsta software and how to contact our 24/7 aftercare team should they need their assistance. 

“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 EV chargers were activated and with one little issue the installation department were on scene and everything possible was done to rectify. Everyone at Elmtronics kept me informed of updates 24 hours a day. I’m so grateful for their service”. – David Bignell, Groundsman @ IMI
