Ingeteam, a global leader in DC fast and ultra-fast charging posts, will expand its 140,000-square-foot U.S. manufacturing facility in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
This significant investment consolidates over $20 million in investment since its launch in 2010.
This investment will help create hundreds of new high-paying jobs over the next five years.
Ingeteam will support the Biden-Harris Administration's ambitious goal of addressing the climate crisis by deploying a national network of 500,000 electric vehicle charging posts along U.S. highways. With this new investment, Ingeteam EV Chargers will increase its capacity of DC Fast EV Chargers (DCFC) and L2 EV Chargers (ranging from 7.5kW to 420kW) in the U.S. market and is fully committed to accelerating the construction of a state-by-state EV charging network in the U.S. market.
The new Ingeteam charging post line in the U.S. will be capable of producing over 13,000 units per year and will meet the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) requirements for domestic manufacturing and purchase of U.S. Act requirements for funded charging posts under the NEVI program (National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure).
"Ingeteam will begin production of our state-of-the-art, Red Dot Award-winning 180 kW DC Fast Charging Pile, fully compliant with the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Program (NEVI) by the second half of 2023. We will Ingeteam charging piles, said Jesus Rodriguez, Executive Vice President of USA: "We will bring the technology from our R&D center and manufacturing facilities in Spain, as well as the experience of having access to more than 35,000 charging piles already deployed worldwide." "This significant investment, combined with the more than $20 million already invested in our cutting-edge manufacturing facility since 2010, will add one hundred new high-paying jobs in the region and at our manufacturing facility in Milwaukee, Wis. over the next five years."
"For more than a decade, Ingeteam has been a major economic driver for Milwaukee and the surrounding region, creating jobs and helping to revitalize the Menomonee River Valley region," said Governor Tony Evers. "As we work to implement Wisconsin's Clean Energy Plan and build a strong clean energy economy for our state, we are excited to see Ingeteam expand its footprint in Milwaukee and look forward to working with them to achieve our clean energy goals in the years ahead"
"In Wisconsin, we make things and we do them well. I'm proud that Ingeteam is continuing our proud Wisconsin manufacturing tradition, producing products that will reduce our dependence on foreign oil and lower the high energy costs that have affected Wisconsinites' wallets in recent years," said Senator Tammy Baldwin. "This new investment in electric vehicle charging stations will create hundreds of good-paying jobs in Wisconsin, develop our skilled manufacturing workforce, and help us combat climate change. I've been proud to support historic investments in our clean energy economy, and companies like Ingeteam are sending a clear message that Wisconsin has the skilled workforce to build a thriving renewable energy economy for generations to come."
These investments will allow Ingeteam EV Chargers to meet the growing market demand for chargers in the United States. Our U.S.-made chargers will meet the needs of all customers, from charging station operators, convenience store/oil and gas suppliers, fleets, municipalities/utilities to original equipment manufacturers.
"Ingeteam's new production line in Milwaukee is good news on several fronts. It helps advance the country's environmental goals; it expands the company's manufacturing capabilities in our city; and, it adds good jobs to our community," said Milwaukee Mayor Cavalier Johnson. "Ingeteam is a valued member of this city's business community, and I congratulate Ingeteam's employees on their accomplishments in this new endeavor."
Milwaukee County Executive David Crowley said, "This is an exciting development for Ingeteam, an established and valued part of our business ecosystem." "I am excited about the company's continued investment and, on behalf of Milwaukee County, thank it for its commitment to our region. This level of partnership will only further strengthen our historic manufacturing heritage and create more economic opportunities for all Milwaukee County residents."
The manufacturing expansion of the electric vehicle chargers will be an important addition to Ingeteam's current operations in the United States. Since its opening in 2010, more than 3,000 of Ingeteam's Indar-branded wind turbines have been manufactured, and the company has supplied 2.5 GW of solar and energy storage inverters to the U.S. market. The service division has also been providing operations and maintenance support to different business units in the U.S. for the past decade and has worked with wind and solar customers offering a wide range of services that now add value to the electric vehicle electric ecosystem.
"Wisconsin has an excellent opportunity to leverage our renowned advanced manufacturing and research capabilities to lead the U.S. and the world in creating and building clean energy technologies," said Missy Hughes, secretary, and CEO of the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC). "We are pleased that Ingeteam has recognized the talents and strengths of our employees, and we are excited to build these fast and ultra-fast charging posts for electric vehicles in Wisconsin."
"We are proud and pleased that Ingeteam continues to grow and invest in southeastern Wisconsin," said Jim Paetsch, executive director of the Milwaukee 7 Economic Development Partnership.
