FLO applauds U.S. President Joe Biden's implementation of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act and funding of $5 billion to build a national charging network.
AUBURN HILLS — FLO has announced plans to open its first U.S. manufacturing facility in Michigan in late 2022 to accelerate execution of its U.S. market strategy.
FLO expects that the facility in Auburn Hills will make a major contribution to Michigan’s electrification future. FLO plans to produce more than 250,000 EV chargers by 2028 for the U.S. market.
The company also expects this facility will create 730 direct, indirect and induced jobs by 2028.
“The future of EVs is in Michigan. We are proud to announce our facility today – our first in the U.S. – that will not only create jobs for Michiganders, but also help meet rising demand for smart, reliable charging stations, and to continue to expand the FLO network across the USA,” said Louis Tremblay, FLO president and CEO in a statement.
The Auburn Hills manufacturing facility will also house an advanced testing lab for the EV chargers. FLO says the location of its advanced lab in Michigan is in close proximity to various American car manufacturers, which means FLO is in a position achieve increased charging alignment to new EVs arriving on the market.
In its announcement, FLO applauded U.S. President Joe Biden’s implementation of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act and funding of $5 billion to build a national charging network in the country to help make EVs accessible to Americans.
