Gyre9, a product design and development firm has completed the design, engineering, and manufacturing of Phase I of the Gen 3 Series of electric vehicle (EV) chargers for Hartford, Connecticut-based JuiceBar, according to Co-Founder and Chief Engineering Officer Ed Gilchrest.
Gilchrest explains, “President and CEO Paul Vosper and Executive Chairman Jeff Mayer assumed leadership of JuiceBar in 2018 and immediately invested in new product development. They brought in Gyre9, initially, to help on some development areas for their Gen 3 EV charging unit. Since that time, we have acted in a number of manufacturing capacities for the JuiceBar team.”
Vosper adds, “The Gyre9 team is exceptionally talented and knew almost instinctively what we were trying to achieve. They successfully manufactured our product by taking our concepts and bringing them to life to help create a best-in-class EV charger with unique and meaningful enhancements to the industry standard.”
Gyre9 was tasked to engineer and implement unique design features for the Gen 3 Series. “We helped design unique features such as a retractable cord storage system, an internal electoral module, and other systems to make the product superior in the market. Our manufacturing arm is producing thousands of units for installation all over the country,” according to Gilchrest.
JuiceBar has been leading the EV Charger rEVolution since 2009 and is committed to building a global EV charging infrastructure that sustains the environment for future generations. Our chargers are deployed across >100 cities in the United States and Canada and are manufactured and assembled in the U.S.A.
