EV Blocks foundations have gained U.K. market traction with a patent-pending design, including a universal adaptor plate and side openings for conduit installation—well suited for nearly all Level 2 (AC, 240-volt) charger installations.

Precast concrete licensor Recon and United Kingdom-based EV Blocks Ltd. have dispatched their first electric vehicle charging station foundation forms to a newly established U.S. producer network. Announced in August 2022, their partnership combines the innovation of the EV Blocks foundation—widely used in the U.K.—with Recon’s expertise in bringing value-added precast elements or structures to market. The partnership and U.S. producer licensing plan coincides with an electric vehicle charging infrastructure ramp up tied to Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act funding provisions. 

“In just a few short months we have been able to establish agreements with producers in over 20 major markets throughout the U.S.,” says Recon President Mike Klotthor “These are experienced companies that have a history of producing quality products. Our producers are looking forward to helping fulfill the need for fast and reliable solutions to support the accelerating EV charging infrastructure buildout.”

“Having producers accessible for EV installation contractors at a local level across the U.S. is really important for us,” adds EV Blocks Director Trevor Palmer. “There are a number of key design aspects that have made our product truly scalable, which will in turn enable installers to move swiftly from one project to the next. This expert network is poised to support the growth of the EV charging station infrastructure nationwide.”
