Electrek – This morning, FreeWire Technologies announced a larger expansion into Europe with a new headquarters in Banbury, Oxfordshire, UK – which will see a ribbon-cutting ceremony on April 19. The new headquarters will also include a sales and demonstration center and serve as the company’s hub as it expands through the EU.
The company states its initial focus will be on the UK, Ireland, and Benelux region, followed by Spain and Italy later this year before expanding to other markets. FreeWire already has some Boost Chargers deployed in the EU through a previously announced partnership with BP, which was followed by a partnership with car dealership Bauwelinck (seen above) this past February. FreeWire’s European head of sales, James Jean-Louis, spoke to the continued expansion overseas:
“Our expansion in Europe is a milestone FreeWire has reached following a year of major growth. We have increased our headcount by 70% and deployed Boost Chargers in four new countries just in the last 12 months. FreeWire is well-positioned to tap into the growing European market. We see a major opportunity to offer reliable, flexible, and cost-effective infrastructure that can be deployed quickly to support the rapid increase in demand for ultrafast EV charging in Europe.”
FreeWire states it has also established a partnership with regional fuel station operator Otamar and recently completed its first Boost Charger installation in the Galicia region of Spain along a major highway near the border with Portugal.
