German-based Siemens has opened a new manufacturing hub in North Texas that’s focused on building electric vehicle (EV) chargers for the U.S., the company announced this week.
The manufacturing facility is located in Carrollton and is Siemens’ second U.S manufacturing facility for EV chargers. The company said the facility will create 100 new jobs for the area.
In a news release, Siemens said the new hub will contribute to the company’s goal of building 1 million EV chargers for the U.S.
“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,” John DeBoer, head of Siemens eMobility North America, said in a statement. “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.”
