FreeWire announces international business expansion, opens European headquarters
06 April 2023
FreeWire Technologies, a provider of battery-integrated electric vehicle (EV) charging stations and energy management solutions, announced the company’s continued expansion into Europe with the official ribbon cutting of FreeWire’s European Headquarters happening on 19 April 2023. This location includes a Sales and Demonstration Center and will serve as a hub for the company’s European expansion.
FreeWire’s European Headquarters will be located in Banbury, Oxfordshire, and will be home to the European team, which will continue to grow throughout 2023. The office space allows room for European operations to scale with demand. FreeWire plans to target the United Kingdom (UK), Ireland, and Benelux region, along with Spain and Italy in 2023 before expanding to other markets.
FreeWire has already deployed Boost Chargers in the European region in partnership with bp. In mid-February, FreeWire began its partnership with Bauwelinck, a regional car dealership. The first ultrafast battery-integrated charger was installed at a dealership in Antwerp and will be open to the public in the coming weeks.
In addition to FreeWire’s partnership with Bauwelinck, the company has also begun a partnership with Otamar, a regional fuel station operator. The first installation was recently deployed in the Galicia region of Spain. The charger is located at a public fueling station in Vigo and sits along a major highway connecting Spain to Portugal.
