Blink Charging Co, a maker of equipment for electric vehicles has announced that it is moving from Florida to Bowie, MD, just outside of Washington, DC. 

According to a press release, Blink announced plans to establish its corporate headquarters at a 15,000-square-foot facility and increase its manufacturing capacity with a new LEED Gold-certified 30,000 square-foot production center. The new manufacturing operations will include an extra production line to streamline operations for expedited and increased production of EV charging units.  

The production facility is expected to produce more than 50,000 charging units annually to cater to the rising demand for electric vehicles. With the relocation and planned manufacturing expansion, Blink hopes to increase environmentally-friendly employment opportunities in the county by creating more than 60 new positions within the first year, according to astatement from the state of Maryland. 

"Blink Charging is proud and excited to be establishing our global headquarters and production facility in Maryland, marking a pivotal moment in our journey toward a greener future,” said Blink President and Chief Executive Officer Brendan Jones. “We are committed to implementing innovative technology and manufacturing processes to enhance efficiency, capability, and output speed while maintaining quality standards and are excited to be doing it here. We thank the state of Maryland for welcoming us.” 

To help with project costs, the Maryland Department of Commerce has approved a $1 million conditional loan through the Advantage Maryland program. Prince George’s County also plans to provide a $120,000 conditional loan through its Economic Development Incentive Fund. The company is eligible for various other incentives, including the More Jobs for Marylanders program and the state's Job Creation Tax Credit.
