Siemens Opens New EV Charging Manufacturing Hub In Carrollton, Texas

Siemens has officially opened the doors to its newest EV charging production facility in Carrollton, Texas, where it will produce EV chargers targeted for the American market. Siemens had just announced back December 2022 that it was retrofitting an 80,000 square foot factory in Carrollton. So, the retrofit only took around 4 months to complete.

The building, which serves as the company’s second US EV charging production hub, will help it achieve its target of producing 1 million EV chargers for the domestic market over the next three years.

A total of 100 new jobs will be generated by the new facility, both on-site and throughout the local supply chain. Wyntron, an existing partner in Siemens eMobility’s manufacturing ecosystem, will also manage some of its operations.

Siemens has invested $3 billion over the past four years in strategic M&A deals and industrial expansions in the United States. The Carrollton factory is the most recent addition to this effort.

“Texans love manufacturing growth and we’re grateful to Siemens for continuing to invest here in North Texas where our workforce is second to none,” said Rep. Beth Van Duyne. “As part of Siemens’ multi-billion dollar investment in advanced manufacturing in the United States, the new Carrollton manufacturing hub will help strengthen critical supply chains and create new, high tech job opportunities for our hard working families.”

“We’ve seen monumental growth in the U.S. EV market over the past several years, spurred in large part by federal investments, and Siemens continues to be perfectly positioned to help meet this demand and to bring the country further into an electrified transportation future,” said John DeBoer, head of Siemens eMobility North America. “The investments we’re making in communities like Carrollton and the work that our skilled employees will be doing to bring EV charging infrastructure to life will have an impact much further than just these city limits.”

The factory produces VersiCharge Blue, a level 2 AC vehicle charger that complies with “Buy American” regulations. The charger’s output ranges from 48 to 80 amps (11.5 to 19.5 kW), making it suitable for practically any placement, including business buildings, hospitals, airports, campuses, and commercial, federal, and school bus fleets. These chargers are made to facilitate a quicker rollout of flexible, open, and accessible EV charging for customers, including the federal government.

“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. “In fact, we’ve invested $200 million over the past several years to bolster our manufacturing footprint, including investments being made just down the road to expand our Grand Prairie manufacturing plant. It’s an exciting day for us to celebrate the latest addition to our local Texas and broader US footprint.”

This facility, which joins the company’s current eMobility manufacturing and R&D sites, is the newest addition to Siemens’ expanding US electrical infrastructure footprint, which also includes continuing expansions of its Texas and California manufacturing operations.

Siemens is currently producing DC chargers for electric bus and electric truck depots in North Carolina and has created an apprenticeship and training program to get the workforce ready for EVs. Above is a video on Siemens Smart Infrastructure USA.

I don't like paywalls. You don't like paywalls. Who likes paywalls? Here at CleanTechnica, we implemented a limited paywall for a while, but it always felt wrong — and it was always tough to decide what we should put behind there. In theory, your most exclusive and best content goes behind a paywall. But then fewer people read it! We just don't like paywalls, and so we've decided to ditch ours. Unfortunately, the media business is still a tough, cut-throat business with tiny margins. It's a never-ending Olympic challenge to stay above water or even perhaps — gasp — grow. So ...
