ABB E-mobility has announced the delivery of its one-millionth electric vehicle charger. The 2022 launch of ABB E-mobility’s new $30-million, 16,000-square-meter production facility in Valdarno, Italy completed a doubling of the company’s production capacity over the last two years. The manufacturing site can produce one DC fast charger every 20 minutes thanks to its seven production lines.
ABB E-mobility continues its rapid global expansion. Earlier this month the company announced the commencement of manufacturing at its new production facility in the US, which is set to produce up to 10,000 chargers annually for public charging, school buses and other fleets. In 2022, ABB also increased its stake in Chinese charging provider Chargedot.
“From the production of the EU’s first 50 kW charger in 2010 to the launch of the Terra 360, ABB E-mobility has long sought to develop the innovations necessary to create an emission-free mobility future,” said ABB E-mobility CEO, Frank Mühlon. “While our continual investment in research and development shows our ongoing commitment to enhance the field of e-mobility, it is the global delivery of these solutions at scale which is integral to the realization of our goals. I would like to thank our customers globally for their continued collaboration in hitting this one millionth charger milestone. I look forward to the millions yet to come, and to the cleaner, greener world they will help create.”
