Siemens Expanding EV Charger Manufacturing site in the United States
The company will bolster its existing manufacturing footprint of EV infrastructure with the VersiCharge Level 2 AC series product line of commercial and residential EV chargers.
With this addition, Siemens is preparing to manufacture over 1 million electric vehicle chargers for the United States over the next four years. This investment is the latest in the company’s strategic plan to meet accelerating electric vehicle charging demand, expand its manufacturing capabilities, and increase transportation electrification job opportunities at all levels in the United States. The company is currently conducting local site evaluations.
The new facility will be the company’s third U.S. eMobility® hub and is projected to support 100 jobs across the manufacturing site and regional supply chain.
The plant will serve as a counterpart to Siemens’ existing operations in Wendell, North Carolina, where the company manufactures charging solutions for buses, trucks and heavy-duty electric vehicles. In 2019, Siemens expanded the 272,000-square-foot Wendell facility to manufacture DC fleet EV chargers, adding over 50 jobs. The Wendell location also works with local educational institutions including North Carolina State University and Wake Tech Community College for training and workforce development.
