Siemens Opens Newest Electric Vehicle Charging Manufacturing Hub in Carrollton, Texas

15 May 2023

Siemens has opened the doors to its newest electric vehicle (EV) charging manufacturing hub located in Carrollton, Texas, where the company will manufacture EV chargers specifically designed to serve the U.S. market. The facility is the company’s second U.S. EV charging manufacturing hub and will contribute to the company’s goal to build 1 million EV chargers for the U.S. market.  The new facility will support the creation of 100 new jobs at the site and across its regional supply chain footprint. It will also be operated in part by Wyntron, an existing partner in Siemens eMobility’s manufacturing ecosystem.

The Carrollton plant marks the latest Siemens investment to strengthen and expand its U.S. footprint, including $3 billion spent over the past four years in U.S. manufacturing expansions and strategic M&A activities.

"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 facility is manufacturing the company's Buy American-compliant level 2 AC electric vehicle chargers, named VersiCharge Blue. Ranging from 48 to 80 amps (11.5 to 19.5 kW), the chargers can be used for almost any installation including commercial, federal and school bus fleets, as well as offices, hospitals, airports, campuses, parking garages and lots. These chargers are designed to enable faster deployment of adaptable, 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 U.S. 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 U.S. footprint.”   

This location is the latest facility in Siemens’ growing U.S. electrical infrastructure footprint, including ongoing expansions of its Texas and California manufacturing facilities, and adds to the company’s existing eMobility manufacturing and R&D sites. In North Carolina, Siemens is manufacturing DC chargers for eBus and eTruck depots and has developed an apprenticeship and training program to prepare the EV workforce. At its Smart Infrastructure USA headquarters and R&D hub in Georgia, Siemens engineers and researchers are working towards the future of electrified transportation.

What our Partners are Saying:

"With this announcement, Siemens is bringing us closer to a better, all-electric future," said Stephen Pantano, Head of Market Transformation at Rewiring America. "We're thrilled that Siemens is making this kind of investment in American manufacturing and leading by example, showing how the clean energy transition will be the economic engine of this century."   

“Siemens’s new Carrollton EV charger manufacturing facility is yet another example of the company’s leadership in building a cleaner, stronger, and more resilient economy,” said Alli Gold Roberts, senior director of state policy at Ceres. “This project underscores the vast economic promise -- including legions of good jobs and a renaissance of made-in-America advanced manufacturing -- that a potent mix of federal policy and private investment has unleashed in states across every region of the U.S.”

“Electric transportation makes the United States stronger and safer by reducing our dependence on oil and creating good American jobs,” said Ben Prochazka, executive director of the Electrification Coalition. “We are excited to see Siemens building the EV charging stations that will power the next generation of vehicles at their new EV charging hub in Carrollton, Texas.”VersiCharge is a registered trademark of Siemens and/or its affiliates in some countries.
