Pure Scooters acquires London Electric Scooters
Electric scooter firm Pure Scooters has acquired London Electric Scooters for an undisclosed sum.
As part of the deal, London Electric Scooters founder Sam McCarthy has become commercial manager of the combined business.
The acquisition gives Pure Scooters an improved foothold in the UK electric scooter market.
Pure Scooters chief executive Adam Norris said: “Sam gives us further reach in London which is a very important market for us and has an excellent network of contacts he can help us utilise. With this acquisition and new appointment, we are confident we have put together a team capable of meeting our global ambitions.”
Norris believes electric scooters can be one of the solutions to urban congestion and commuters’ “first mile, last mile” distance between transport hubs their home or office. In addition, he is hoping that the government will update the current law that sees electric scooters banned from UK roads and cycle paths.
McCarthy said: “When Adam reached out and I saw the huge potential of Pure Scooters and listened to his vision, I could see it was an amazing opportunity. I’m now looking forward to being part of the growth of this exciting company.”
