Nidec starts EV charger production at upgraded US plant

Japanese electric systems manufacturer Nidec has begun production at its newly upgraded facility in Cleveland, Ohio.

The expansion includes new manufacturing lines for Nidec’s DC fast EV chargers and power conversion systems for battery energy storage systems. Nidec aims to expand its battery storage installed base and EV charger deployments that support energy distributors, companies, and municipalities throughout Europe into the US market, having received third-party certification to meet US safety standards.

The company expects to add more skilled positions at the Cleveland facility as it expands its local supplier base to meet growing domestic EV charging and energy storage demand over the coming years.

“The advanced technology Nidec manufactures here in Cleveland keeps the US on the leading front of the global energy transition because we can support new energy installments within the US, for the US,” said Ali Karvar, President and General Manager of Nidec Conversion, Americas.
