Biggest milestone in the history of electric mobility at KEBA

100,000 charging stations sold

The Austrian automation company KEBA has been active in the electric mobility market since 2009. The company is now celebrating the biggest milestone in its electric mobility history - 100,000 charging stations sold! The golden “anniversary wall box” went to Swedish e-mobility provider Clever and was recently installed in Sweden.

When KEBA presented its first prototype of a charging station for electric vehicles ten years ago, electric mobility was just a niche technology. “With charging stations for environmentally friendly traffic we have created a promising field for our future,” KEBA CEO Gerhard Luftensteiner remarked back then. 600 of these charging stations were installed within the first two years, mostly in the domestic markets of Austria and Germany.

Due to exponential growth in this business area, 35,000 charging stations were sold and shipped in the last fiscal year (April 2017 to March 2018). The 600 power charging stations in the beginning have now become approx. 6,000 stations produced per month and the number of employees in this business area has risen accordingly.

Ever since the home charging station was introduced in 2012, which replaced the first KeContact flex charging stations, 100,000 of these stations have now been sold worldwide! The anniversary wall box was delivered to KEBA’s customer Clever in Sweden, an electric mobility provider that has made a name for itself mainly due to its business model and holistic approach in the industry.

Andreas Plotz, Executive Sales for Electric Mobility at KEBA: *“We are very happy that our 100,000th wall box went to Clever in Sweden and that we can now celebrate this special milestone and our business relationship with Clever. Outside of our core markets and in the field of electric mobility, Scandinavian countries are our most important sales market and are taking a pioneering role.” *

Fredrik Nordin adds: “The high quality and reliability of KEBA charging stations have impressed us time and time again. We are proud to have installed the 100,000th wall box for one of our customers here in Sweden."

For the project "Urcharge" (Urban Charging) 51 households in a Linz residential complex will be exchanging their fuel car for an electric car including their own KEBA charging station, which is integrated into the Linz AG charging solution "WallBOX CitySolution". It will provide answers to fundamental questions about what infrastructure and charging behaviour is needed in order to make the day-to-day use of e-mobility a decisive environmental protection factor in urban areas, even for densely populated areas.
