Finnish EV infrastructure specialist, Kempower, has announced its plans to open a new production facility in Lahti. The company has signed a letter of intent for the lease of a premises covering approximately 10,000sq-m, with the option to expand in the future.
The new facility will serve as a production centre for chargers and will also house research, development, and office space, among other functions. The gradual opening of the production facility is scheduled to take place throughout 2024 and will effectively double Kempower’s production capabilities in Europe. The choice of location for the facility was made based on several factors, including its suitability for expansion and future growth opportunities.
“Expanding our company’s operations in its hometown of Lahti feels great,” says CEO Tomi Ristimäki. ”With our new premises, we will be able to meet the growing demand for reliable fast charging solutions. By locating our product development and research close to production, we can continue our growth efficiently and build top expertise in e-mobility in Finland.”
The move to establish a larger production facility reflects Kempower’s response to the increasing demand for EV charging solutions. As the adoption of electric vehicles continues to grow, the availability of reliable and efficient charging infrastructure becomes crucial. By expanding their production capabilities, Kempower aims to meet this demand and contribute to the development of sustainable e-mobility solutions.
