Total Fitness Manager Trades Treadmills for Fast Charging Electric Cars

Bolton’s Neil Armitage has been appointed as the Marketing Manager for Charge-M8, a rapidly expanding Sale-based electric car charging company that is electrifying the UK’s EV industry.

Neil previously worked for the well known fitness brand, Total Fitness, for over 20 years, but has always had a keen interest in innovative technology and companies who pride themselves on offering exceptional customer service and a good work life balance for their employees.

Neil said: “I’m delighted to be working for Charge-M8 and have been so impressed with their company ethos and customer feedback.  My first project is to get behind the wheel of the MD’s Polestar and spend two weeks commuting from Bolton to Trafford and blogging about the whole experience.  There are so many myths about electric cars so it will be a great way for me to dispel these first hand.”

“There is so much misinformation about the cost of running an electric vehicle, with suggestions of it being similar to petrol and diesel. Interestingly, this often comes without a credible source and is passed forward by word of mouth via a friend of a friend. I’m hoping to demonstrate this in my blog posts.  When looking at the readily available information from reliable authorities, the data supports that electric vehicles are often around 56% cheaper per mile than traditional fuels. In some cases, it can get even cheaper when driving a modern electric car, along with certain energy providers. According to Octopus energy, when using the Ohme Home Pro Smart Charger and selecting their Intelligent Octopus tariff, you can benefit from their smartest, greenest and cheapest charging at 10p/kWh.” Neil added.

Julian Smith, Chief Executive Officer at Charge-M8 said: “We’re delighted to welcome Neil to our team and with his enthusiasm and drive to succeed we’re confident to be able to expand our offering throughout the UK.  At present we cover the North West, Wales, Staffordshire and Yorkshire with plans to reach West Midlands and Sheffield this year.”

Charge-M8 are fast becoming the go-to company for all your EV Charging needs both domestic and commercial.  The key to choosing the right EV Charger is to check the charge rating of your vehicle – as this will govern the maximum charge rate, regardless of the charge-point maximum output. You’ll also need to check your incomming supply, and ensure you have the spare capacity to supply your new charge-point.

The Technical Experts at Charge-M8 can help to identify your requirements, just give us a call or complete the enquiry form on our website and we’ll be in touch! EV Charging equipment must be installed by a qualified engineer, you should never attempt to install EV Charging equipment yourself.
