Phoenix Contact E-Mobility GmbH celebrates its ten-year-anniversary
2023 is a special year for Phoenix Contact – the company can look back on 100 years of passion for technology and innovation this year. Part of this success story is also the establishment of the E-Mobility subsidiary in 2013.
Ten years ago, Phoenix Contact E-Mobility started in Schieder-Schwalenberg, located in the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia, as a startup in the electromobility market with just 23 employees. Today, the company is a global specialist in e-mobility charging technology with three manufacturing sites in Germany, Poland, and China. Included in its broad portfolio are all components required to set up charging infrastructure and also the vehicle charging interface. The company is already known for its CCS charging cable as well as its liquid-cooled charging connector for ultra-fast High Power Charging.
The dynamic development of Phoenix Contact E-Mobility GmbH continued in the 2022 fiscal year. The signs continue to point to exceptional growth for the next decade. As a global player with more than 1,000 employees and 25 production lines worldwide, the company’s sales increase over the previous year is more than 50%. Sales growth in the Chinese and US markets contributed particularly to this.
Also in 2022, Phoenix Contact E-Mobility successfully passed the audits for certification of its environmental management system in accordance with ISO 14001. It also achieved accreditation for its test-and-release Laboratory in accordance with ISO/IEC 17025. The company meets the high quality and process requirements of the automotive industry in accordance with IATF 16949. 100% carbon-neutral production and the integration of environmental protection in all processes reduces harmful environmental impacts.
Along with clean power generation, e-mobility is a key foundation for the All Electric Society. With its products, Phoenix Contact E-Mobility is making a crucial contribution: Practical and networked fast charging removes hurdles such as “range anxiety”, accelerating the switch to electric, climate-friendly mobility. With CHARX, the electromobility specialist offers a complete portfolio of high-performance charging technology components, both for the electrification of vehicles and for the development of a sustainable and networked charging infrastructure. Another focus is the electrification of special and commercial vehicles. The portfolio described includes well over 600 CHARX products in 2023.
