NAPA Aligns With Qmerit For EV Charging Stations

NAPA says it will be the first in the aftermarket to offer Qmerit’s turnkey EV-charging installation services to buyers.

NAPA Auto Parts has announced a new initiative to help drivers and partners nationwide make the transition to an electric future through a unique collaboration with Qmerit

Qmerit is an Irvine, California-based provider of installation services for EV charging and other electrification technologies. NAPA says it will be the first in the automotive aftermarket to offer Qmerit’s turnkey EV-charging installation services to buyers.

As the number of electric vehicles on the road steadily grows, this new collaboration will help NAPA deliver on its initiative to increase the availability of EV charging stations from coast to coast, the company says. Charger buyers now can access Qmerit’s installation services directly from NAPAonline.com, where customers can easily research and purchase the charger that’s right for them.

“Alongside our existing commitments to increasing education and training for new technicians, NAPA is also committed to sourcing and ramping up resources that provide our network with the parts and accessories most crucial to maintaining an electric vehicle,” said Susan Starnes, vice president of emerging markets at Genuine Parts Co. “This effort with Qmerit expands the ways we’re bringing needed change for the aftermarket industry, while honoring the road we’ve traveled to get here. We’re excited to further serve this growing segment of drivers and maintain the level of service the existing NAPA customers have come to expect.”

This integration allows buyers to conveniently request an online estimate for their installation and connect with one of Qmerit’s certified installers. Qmerit’s certified network spanning the United States and Canada is comprised exclusively of licensed electricians who are insured, background-checked, trained and monitored for safety and service quality.
