Canada-based FLO announced the installation of the first wave of workplace electric vehicle (EV) charging stations as part of a multi-year agreement with General Motors (GM), whereby FLO provides AC Level 2 and direct current (DC) fast chargers for GM to be installed on their premises in the United States.

Over the past two years, FLO’s collaboration with GM has been growing steadily and flourishing through different agreements. This time, we are particularly proud to support GM’s drive towards full electrification by bringing FLO chargers to employee parking lots. As we will cater to the employees driving GM’s current and future EVs, we know our workplace charging solutions will be used by sophisticated EV drivers with high expectations. We look forward to showcasing the reliability of our products with them and, consequently, helping to strengthen our collaboration with GM.—Louis Tremblay, President and CEO of FLO
FLO is one of a select few EV networks the chargers of which are being installed at GM’s plants and facilities, stretching over more than 120 locations across the US. FLO stations are already present at GM sites in New York City, Austin (TX), Arlington (TX), Flint (MI), and more. So far, more than 350 FLO chargers have been shipped to GM offices and plants, including 10 DC fast chargers, with the rest being AC Level 2 CoRe+ chargers.

At GM, we are committed to putting everyone in an EV. Doing so will require making EV charging readily accessible where people work, which is why we are excited to work with FLO to increase charging for our own employees, whether they are at an engineering or manufacturing facility.—Rick Spina, Vice President, AV/EV Commercialization and Infrastructure at GM
Every month, FLO enables hundreds of thousands charging events with more than 50,000 stations deployed on public networks, commercial and residential installations. FLO’s headquarters and network operations center are based in Québec City, and its assembly plant is located in Shawinigan (Québec). The company also has an office in Montreal and regional teams located in Ontario, British Columbia, California, New York, and Texas.
