Siemens has opened a new charger manufacturing hub in Carrollton, Texas where the company will manufacture EV chargers for the US market. The facility is the company’s second US EV charging manufacturing hub. It will be operated in part by Wyntron, an existing partner in Siemens eMobility’s manufacturing ecosystem.
The facility is manufacturing the company’s Buy American-compliant VersiCharge Blue Level 2 EV chargers. Ranging from 48 to 80 amps (11.5 to 19.5 kW), the chargers are designed for fleets, as well as sites such as offices, hospitals, airports, campuses and parking facilities.
This location is the latest in Siemens’ growing U.S. electrical infrastructure footprint, including ongoing expansions of its Texas and California manufacturing facilities. In North Carolina, Siemens is manufacturing DC chargers for e-bus and e-truck depots, and has developed an apprenticeship and training program to prepare the EV workforce. At its Smart Infrastructure USA headquarters and R&D hub in Georgia, Siemens engineers and researchers are “working towards the future of electrified transportation.”
“This new Carrollton facility joins a growing family of Siemens infrastructure manufacturing hubs across the US that deliver critical electrical equipment for not just the EV industry, but to support semiconductor and battery manufacturing, data centers, and many other key markets,” said Ruth Gratzke, President of Siemens Smart Infrastructure USA.
