Wallbox, a Barcelona-based manufacturer of smart charging solutions, has announced the acquisition of Electromaps, a digital platform for locating and accessing charging points.
The Electromaps app, which allows users to access and pay for charging directly from their mobile phones, features a database of over 120,000 recharging points in 120 countries, and has some 100,000 registered users.
Wallbox offers four types of chargers, including Quasar, a bidirectional charger for home use. The company has two factories, and offices in Europe, Asia, and America, and currently sells its products in more than 40 countries. At the beginning of this year, Wallbox completed the second tranche of its series A investment, securing €23 million to continue its expansion to China and America.
“By adding public charging access to our portfolio, we are making rapid progress towards creating a complete ecosystem for electric car charging in our current markets,” said Enric Asunción, CEO of Wallbox. “Beyond having Southern Europe’s leading platform in public charging, Electromaps and its team bring us years of expertise in this market segment. Our goal is to continue investing in the technological development of the platform and take it to more markets, thus complementing our existing residential and semi-public charging solutions.
