Korea-headquartered EV charger maker SK Signet has opened its first US EV charger manufacturing facility in Plano, Texas.
The company projects the plant’s production capacity of its range of chargers, from stand-alones to power cabinets supporting multiple dispensers, at more than 10,000 units per year. The facility will also host R&D, manufacture EV charger power modules, conduct charger testing with automakers, and develop EV charging software and firmware.
SK Signet’s fastest V2 charger, which is slated to begin production at the Texas facility later this year, provides a maximum output of 400 kW.
“The company’s new state-of-the-art facility will not only create new manufacturing jobs for Texans, but will advance critical EV infrastructure for our state and the nation,” said Texas Governor Greg Abbott, who recently signed a $200-per-year tax on EVs into law.
