Dover Completes Acquisition of Electric Refuse Collection Vehicle Intellectual Property Portfolio

DOWNERS GROVE, Ill., April 6, 2022 /PRNewswire/ - Dover (NYSE: DOV) today announced that it has completed the acquisition of certain intellectual property from Boivin Evolution Inc. (“BEV”) related to electrically-powered refuse collection vehicle (“RCV”) bodies. The acquisition will enhance and solidify the technological leadership and product portfolio of Dover’s Environmental Solutions Group (“ESG”) business unit within Dover’s Engineered Products segment.

Founded in 2017 by inventor and waste-collection industry veteran Claude Boivin, BEV is a pioneer in the development of an all-electric automated side-loading RCV body that, when combined with an electric truck chassis, enables a zero-emission refuse truck. BEV’s body can be configured to be completely self-powered with its own battery pack and mounted on conventional diesel, compressed natural gas, or electric power chassis, or it can be integrated into the electric-powered chassis to use a common battery pack. An all-electric RCV using BEV’s technology can complete a full daily route on a single overnight charge, offering waste haulers and their municipal waste customers a new technologically and economically viable tool for sustainability initiatives.

“ESG is a global leader in solutions for the waste and recycling industries and a recognized technology pioneer. BEV’s intellectual property portfolio brings to ESG a complementary set of innovative capabilities and proprietary technologies that will position ESG to better support our customers as they invest in alternative-fuel and sustainable RCV offerings,” said ESG President, Patrick Carroll. “The acquisition positions ESG to capitalize on the secular growth in the adoption of electric RCVs and reinforces our commitment to leadership in alternative fuels while enhancing our position as a full-solution partner to our customers.”

Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
