Aims to contribute to global net zero by advancing the EV era in Europe
Frankfurt, Germany — Feb 21, 2023 — SK Signet, a top global manufacturer of electric vehicle (EV) charging solutions, secured its first production contract in the U.K., worth EUR 7.3 million, through its European subsidiary, SK Signet Europe. SK Signet Europe, which began operations in December 2022, aims to support the transition to EV’s in Europe and will manufacture ultra-fast chargers for the region, allowing consumers to charge their vehicles quicker and more reliably.
SK Signet announced the establishment of its European operations, SK Signet Europe at CES 2023. Headquartered in Germany, SK Signet Europe will focus on creating sales and business collaboration opportunities in five major EV market-leading countries: Germany, England, Italy, France, and Spain.
Additionally, SK Signet Europe has established a service center in Luton, England to facilitate real-time customer response and product maintenance services across the market. The company will build on its experience in the U.S. to provide customizable solutions and a top-tier charging experience to Europe’s EV drivers.
"Europe, which is spearheading the global EV era, is a significant market for SK Signet and we are committed to electrifying Europe while contributing to the global net zero efforts with our ultra-fast EV Chargers,” stated Jung-ho Shin, CEO of SK Signet.
In 2020, the EU announced its targets to install more than 3 million
EV chargers in Europe by 2030. This is in advance of the region’s
mandate that the sale of new internal combustion engine vehicles will be
banned beginning in 2035. SK Signet Europe’s expansion into the region
will support the success of the transition to EV’s, and will provide an
elevated charging experience for users.
"SK Signet looks forward to expanding our partnerships across Europe
to support the continent’s ambition to curb carbon emissions and make
EV’s a reality for more consumers,” said June Park, Chief Marketing
Officer of SK Signet Europe.
SK Signet’s Growth
SK Signet has been expanding its facilities to support the global
adoption of EVs by providing a high-tech and reliable ultra-fast
charging experience for drivers. In the U.S., SK Signet America
announced plans in late 2022 to open a new EV charger manufacturing
facility in Texas. This facility will provide the first
U.S.-manufactured ultra-fast chargers and power cabinets that offer more
than 350kW of power.
