Siemens has announced the will to acquire charging solutions specialist Heliox. According to a press note spread by Siemens in August, the acquisition “will complement Siemens’ existing eMobility charging portfolio, adding products and solutions for DC fast-charging focused on eBus and eTruck fleets”.
Siemens eMobility is part of Siemens Smart Infrastructure. It offers IoT-enabled hardware, software and services for AC and DC charging from 11 to 300 kW for a broad range of applications. Heliox is a Dutch company employing about 330 people. Heliox’s portfolio will also extend Siemens’ market reach, primarily in Europe and North America, while improving capabilities in power electronics. The transaction is subject to customary regulatory approval. About recent M&As, Siemens Commercial Vehicles was sold to Meritor (now belonging to the Cummins group) back in May, 2022.
“This is an important milestone that adds value to our fast-growing eMobility charging business. In addition to expanding our offering, we see digitalization and software potential with regard to energy and depot management and services,” said Matthias Rebellius, member of the managing board of Siemens AG and CEO of Smart Infrastructure.
