Siemens acquires EV charger maker Heliox

Heliox will help expand Siemens eMobility offering for the growing eBus and eTruck charging market, and for depot and fleet solutions

German automation company Siemens has officially acquired fast EV charging systems provider Heliox.

Headquartered in the Netherlands, Heliox’s appeal is its fast charging solutions and management services for eTruck and eBus fleets.

Heliox’s modular chargers allow scale of charging infrastructure based on business needs. They claim it is great for upfront costs and lowering total cost of ownership.

The acquisition complements Siemens’ existing eMobility charging portfolio, adding products and solutions ranging from 40 kilowatts (kW) to megawatt charging solutions for depots and en-route charging.

Heliox’s portfolio also extends Siemens’ market reach, primarily in Europe and North America, while improving capabilities in power electronics.

Heliox’s mobile, scalable and parallel charging solutions will enable Siemens to serve these markets better.

Siemens managing board member Matthias Rebellius says, “We are witnessing unparalleled growth in the EV charging infrastructure market.”

“DC fast charging solutions for eBus and eTruck fleets are considered the fastest growing segment here.

“With the acquisition of Heliox, Siemens eMobility is well-positioned to serve our customers worldwide.”

The combination of the two companies’ charging portfolios creates a strong offering for eBus and eTruck customers.

Heliox is set to benefit from Siemens’ industrialisation capabilities, global sales network and infrastructure, enabling it to scale up its production and meet increasing customer demand.

Siemens acquired Heliox from private equity firm Waterland and an entity owned by a group of employees and individual shareholders.
