Fredrik Jonsson founded Charge Amps in 2012 with our first product Charge Amps Spark, a charging cable that revolutionised the industry. Read the full story below of how the company was formed from his kitchen table in Sollentuna.
Our first charging station Charge Amps Halo was launched. Designed with a new distinctive style and high level of user friendliness, it rapidly became a best-seller.
In 2016, Charge Amps launched a groundbreaking cloud service for the first time. Four years on we are still at the cutting edge in terms of the development of innovative solutions and software.
At Charge Amps we firmly believe that outstanding products not only enhance people’s lives but benefit the entire world. This is what drove Fredrik Jonsson to found Charge Amps in 2012. Fredrik was not alone in recognising that a sustainable future requires a transition away from fossil fuel dependency, but he was one of the more impatient ones. The fact that a high-tech car had to use unsustainably manufactured chargers that were anything but intelligent, was an eyesore to his love for progress. Fredrik and co-founder Boel Rydenå Swartling set about to create a charger to be intelligent, sustainable, user friendly and aesthetically pleasing. Charge Amps was born.
That pioneering spirit is still very much present. Our products tackle the demands of today, while bringing tomorrow closer – what was once a charger has grown into an entire ecosystem, that intelligently connects cars to buildings and beyond. Always with our customers at the centre of it all. And while our products are designed to withstand the toughest climate, they are manufactured to keep that same climate intact. All our products are made from recycled materials, and we are constantly looking to improve our production chain.
Charge Amps was created to make a change. In people’s lives and for the world we all live in. And as long as there’s an opportunity to make things better, we will keep charging forward. Making electrified life, simply electrifying. For many years to come.
