Terra Energy Services Adopts Parent Company’s Name, ACDI

2 min read

Terra Energy Services of Benton is changing its name to take advantage of the brand of its parent company, Access Control Devices Inc., a successful computer software and hardware company in Arkansas since 1994.

According to a news release, Terra Energy’s new name, ACDI Energy Services, reflects “commitment to the ACDI brand and the industry-leading reputation it has earned.”

The rebranded company will continue to work facilitating electric vehicle charging in commercial and residential areas “through a combination of hardware, software and maintenance offerings,” the release said.

Josh Lane, ACDI’s president and CEO, said he’s proud of what the name represents to partners, vendors and customers. “As we continue to invest in the next generation of infrastructure with EV charging stations, this new name reinforces the same commitment to service and support that the industry has come to expect from ACDI.”

ACDI sells and supports software and hardware products for print management.

ACDI opened a 70-employee headquarters in downtown Benton in 2017, 18,000 SF at 403 Main Street hosted Gov. Asa Hutchinson at its ribbon-cutting. The two-level building was designed by Black Corley Owens & Hughes of Benton and built by Harco Constructors of North Little Rock.

Before the headquarters opened, ACDI’s employees worked in offices in Benton and Little Rock.

ACDI expects electric vehicles to make up half of new cars sold by 2030, and ACDI Energy Services says it is committed to making EV charging available to all.

Last year, the Arkansas Energy Office announced that ACDI was a recipient of Level 2 Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment Reimbursement Program rebates for the 2022 funding year. Other EV station rebates went to the Cabot Community Center and City Hall, Innerplan Inc. of North Little Rock, Nick’s Bar-B-Q and Catfish of Carlisle, the Delta Development Fund of Little Rock and the city of North Little Rock.

The installations associated with the rebates gave Arkansas 31 new EV charging stations.

In an announcement about the rebates in April 2022, the Arkansas Energy Office said ACDI installed charging stations for its current and future employees.

Terra Energy Business Development Manager Francesco Havas said offering workplace charging “is a great way to attract new talent and demonstrate to your employees that they are valued and their needs are important.”
