The company says the decision to set up in Central Ohio is driven by a favourable business environment, reasonable operational costs, a robust supply chain, and attractive government incentives. The plant is set to commence production in the first quarter of 2024.

This factory will see an initial production capacity of over 20,000 chargers annually, incorporating a range of AC, DC, and bi-directional chargers, ranging from 7kW to 480kW. The chargers are designed to meet the needs of various applications, including residential, school buses, commercial fleets, and public charging stations. The Ohio plant will manufacture NEVI (Next-Generation Electric Vehicle Infrastructure) ready DC fast chargers, including the Titan 150KW and Neptune split system models. Renowned for their over 97% efficiency and intelligent dynamic load management features, these chargers contribute to the operational efficiency of charging stations.

“Alongside this new plant, we are actively seeking to engage with local talents, foster strategic partnerships, and establish dedicated service teams to enhance our operations and accessibility to our US customers,” said Herman Chang , CEO of Star Charge. “Our goal is to work with our US customers to explore innovative solutions that drive e-mobility adoption and microgrids for a sustainable future."
