Ecolab Selects Ford Pro™ To Accelerate Its North American EV Fleet
Ecolab, a global provider of water, hygiene, and infection prevention solutions, has selected Ford Pro™, Ford’s commercial division, to accelerate the electrification of its sales and service fleet, targeting complete North American fleet electrification by 2030.
Ecolab’s and Ford’s business relationship, forged nearly 100 years ago, is expanding on the heels of a new commitment to create positive impacts, progress toward carbon neutrality and advance sustainable growth.
“Electrification of Ecolab’s North American fleet begins in California with the conversion of its sales and service vehicles to EVs by 2025. Ecolab will purchase and deploy more than 1,000 Ford F-150® Lightning® Pro trucks and Mustang® Mach-E® SUVs, creating what is anticipated to be the largest all-electric sales and service fleet in California,” according to a press release. “Ford Pro offers a full suite of charging and telematics software that Ecolab will use to help the business maximize vehicle performance and fleet productivity.”
The move to EVs is a crucial step in Ecolab’s efforts to achieve net-zero emissions globally by 2050.
“Ecolab’s history is rich with collaboration between like-minded companies committed to sustainable business growth,” Christophe Beck, chairman and CEO of Ecolab, said. “Ford and Ecolab have worked together for nearly a century, most recently to help conserve water and energy while improving business performance. This next phase of our relationship will help us move quickly and at scale with the goal of improving profits through renewable energy and EV solutions for the betterment of our employees, business, and the environment.”
