ZEVX and Fastenal Set Sights on a Zero-Carbon Future
ZEVX produces battery electric power systems and data intelligence for e-mobility applications.

Kevin Larson, Vice President of Transportation at Fastenal, emphasized their desire to drive innovation and efficiency within the commercial transportation sector, given the vast number of vehicles in operation worldwide.
He highlighted their continuous exploration of new solutions, such as ZEVX technology, to advance the industry and potentially expedite Fastenal's own efforts to reduce carbon emissions.
