EAVX, the newest business unit of JB Poindexter & Co that collaborates with electric and alternative power chassis producers, and Unique Electric Solutions (UES), a manufacturer of electric (EV) and fuel cell electric (FCEV) vehicle propulsion systems for commercial fleets, upfitters and select OEMs, have formed a strategic collaboration to commercialize innovative and industry-leading all-electric vocational work trucks.

"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," said EAVX Chief Operating Officer and General Manager Mark Hope. "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. The two companies will also jointly investigate the modification of the Morgan Olson NLDV vehicle for conversion to a battery electric 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. And what better way to do that than with EAVX and the Morgan Olson teams, the biggest and best in the industry," said Joe Ambrosio, CEO of Unique Electric Solutions. “Our uniqueEV 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.”
