EV Charging Company to Build Plant in Tennessee
Feb. 15, 2022—Australian-based EV charging company Tritium announced it will build its U.S. manufacturing hub in Tennessee.
The plant will be built in Lebanon, a town about 30 miles east of Nashville on Interstate 40, and according to a news release from Gov. Bill Lee's office is expected to create more than 500 jobs over the next five years. The facility will serve as Tritium's only DC fast charging unit manufacturer in the U.S.
“Tennessee is at the forefront of the electric vehicle evolution, and we are proud to have another global company join the roster of companies that support this thriving industry in our state," Bob Rolfe, commissioner of Tennessee's Economic and Community Development department, said via the news release. "We appreciate Tritium’s investment in Lebanon and know that this accomplishment would not be possible without the strong leadership at the state and local community level.”
Production is expected to begin in later this year, and the facility is estimated to be able to put out 10,000 units per year.
