Xos Announces Mission Linen Supply as New Customer


As a part of our continued effort to keep shareholders apprised of business and market news regarding our proposed combination partner, Xos, we are excited to share that last week, Xos announced a brand new electric stepvan customer: Mission Linen Supply. For 90 years, Mission Linen Supply has been the trusted commercial linen provider for over 40,000 restaurants, hospitals, hotels, industrial organizations, corporations and casinos. Operating as sustainably as possible is a core value for Mission Linen Supply, and Xos is thrilled to help them take the initial steps to electrify their commercial fleets and reduce emissions.


Mission Linen Supply has ordered twelve Xos 22-foot body SV stepvans, which are some of the first 22-foot electric stepvans Xos has developed and delivered. This is in addition to the outstanding contracts Xos has with other household name uniform customers, including UniFirst and Alsco. The addition of Mission Linen Supply as a customer further demonstrates the acceptance among large fleet customers of the utility of Xos’ products.


Stepping back, in the short time since we announced our proposed combination with Xos, the company has announced three brand new large-fleet-operator relationships, including Xcel Energy and Winnebago. In combination with the record deliveries the Xos announced for their fourth quarter, we see great momentum for the company in 2024.


As a reminder, EMV shareholders have until March 18, 2024 at 11:00 a.m. PT to vote on our proposed combination with Xos.
