OUR STORY

Why electric vehicle charging stations need an aesthetic design and how leading smart technology was born on a kitchen table in a Swedish suburb.

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.
