Milbank Manufacturing selects AeroVironment’s EV charging solutions for national distribution program to expand charging infrastructure

Milbank Manufacturing Co. of Kansas City, Mo., has selected AeroVironment, Inc. (AV) of Monrovia, California to provide AV’s electric vehicle (EV) charging stations to its customers—including utilities, developers, contractors, businesses, and consumers—through Milbank’s nationwide distribution network. The partnership enhances Milbank’s PowerGen line of renewable power solutions and furthers the expansion of EV charging infrastructure throughout the United States.

Milbank will offer several of AV’s EV charging station models including vehicle charging at the home, office, retail complex, fleet yard, or construction site. AV’s smart charging station is compatible with the Smart Grid and capable of interacting with utilities to help manage the potential impact of EVs on the electric grid. Milbank’s distribution network will give electrical contractors throughout the nation access to AV’s leading EV charging products to support all-electric and hybrid-electric vehicles. EV and hybrid-electric drivers will also gain access to these products through major home improvement retailers serviced by Milbank.

When the EV line is launched this spring, the company plans to feature a range of Milbank-branded charging solutions from AeroVironment:

  • MEVSE-RS Level 2 charging dock for home and business
  • Dual- and quad-port MEVSE-RS configurations that charge two and four EVs from a single utility connection
  • MEVSE-RS+smart charging dock, which enables communication with the grid to turn drivers’ homes into grid-connected smart charging hubs
  • CHAdeMO-certified Level 3 DC EV50-PSand EV50-FS, which recharge vehicles in minutes instead of hours

The program will be supported by formal training held at the Milbank Institute of Training (MIT), the company’s training, UL certification, and research and development facility. Training will focus on all of Milbank’s renewable solutions, including EV charging, backup power systems, and small wind turbines.

Milbank builds solutions that move power for the residential, commercial, industrial, utility and transportation sectors.



Congrads, AeroVironment has the know-how.
