EverCharge will manufacture American-made EV charging stations at its new facility in California
December 7, 2022
PALO ALTO, Calif.—EverCharge, a provider of turnkey electric vehicle (EV) charging products for fleet and multi-family homes, is expanding its manufacturing footprint and opening a new 30,000-square-foot production factory in Hayward, the company said in a release.
EverCharge stated that as international supply chain shortages continue to limit and delay production around the world, it is proud to be “one of the few companies” to manufacture its electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE) in North America. The company said it is creating new opportunities for highly skilled local jobs and plans to double its factory workforce by mid-2023.
“The demand for EV charging has never been greater, and we are committed to investing in the manufacturing, installation, and service of charging stations for our rapidly growing customer base,” said Jason Appelbaum, CEO of EverCharge, in the release. “The opening of our Hayward factory is a prime example of how EverCharge is driving the U.S. clean energy movement forward with high-quality, reliable, and American-made EV charging solutions.”
According to the release, development and expansion of the new Hayward facility began in September of 2022 and is slated to be completed by early 2023. EverCharge selected Hayward as the location of its manufacturing hub because of its innovative business community, key location for talent, and proximity to Highway 880 for convenient transportation of goods, the company said.
The factory opening follows EverCharge’s acquisition by SK E&S, a Korean energy company, and is part of SK E&S’s investment in U.S.-based energy solutions.
