Qmerit, the leading provider of residential and light commercial EV charging station installations in North America, today announced it has purchased Willow Glen Electric Inc., one of Silicon Valley’s most trusted electrical contractors. Willow Glen Electrical’s established market presence, deep residential experience, and EV installation and technology focus gives Qmerit immediate credibility and self-perform electrification capabilities in one of the U.S.’s most innovative and fast-growing EV markets.
San Jose, CA-based Willow Glen Electric is family founded and run, and has been serving the greater San Jose Area for more than 30 years. The company specializes in providing quality electrical services to homeowners, small businesses, tech startups, and light-commercial clients with a specialty niche for EV charging. In 2013, they expanded into EV installation and technology with the launch of its EVXperts division. EVXperts has become one of California’s leading EV charger installation teams, having completed more than 4,000 EV charging station installations to date.
“With its high tech orientated population and high demand for EV in-home charging, Silicon Valley is a key strategic market for Qmerit. Because Willow Glen Electric has been a Qmerit preferred partner for the past four years, we knew they would be ideal for our first company-owned location there,” said Tracy Price, Chairman & CEO, Qmerit. “Willow Glen’s reputation for service excellence, established customer base, and focus on EV innovation aligns with our core business philosophy and adding them to the Qmerit team raises the bar for electrification services.”
Willow Glen Electrical will retain its name and brand but will add “Powered by Qmerit” to the company logo. Matt Londre, whose father and mother founded the company, will lead Willow Glen Electrical going forward. Matt has been the company’s driving force for innovation and expansion into EV installation and technology adoption.
“We are excited to join the Qmerit family and leverage their world-class electrification service and support model to take Willow Glen Electric to the next level,” said Matt Londre, President, Willow Glen Electric. “Through this acquisition we hope to help Qmerit build on its vision for the future of electrification, while growing and expanding the company. Our goal is to offer more innovative, quality services to our customers, provide great opportunities for our employees, and continue to give back to the community.”
