Blink Charging launches UK business to supercharge EV infrastructure

U.S. chargepoint provider Blink Charging has announced the launch of Blink Charging UK which is set to supercharge EV charging across the UK and Ireland.

Blink Charging, the manufacturer, owner, operator and provider of electric vehicle (EV) charging equipment and services, has rebranded EB Charging to Blink Charging UK following its acquisition in April 2022. The rebrand provides Blink with a significant visible footprint of more than 1225 chargers in the United Kingdom and Ireland.

“The market opportunity in the United Kingdom and Ireland is substantial and was a significant factor in our consideration for the EB Charging acquisition,” said Michael D. Farkas, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Blink Charging. “While overall vehicle sales in the United Kingdom are slow, EVs outpaced expectations, accounting for nearly 17% of new vehicle registrations last year. The acceleration of EV adoption demands the EV charging infrastructure to support it. With Blink now having a solid foundation and growing brand awareness across the region, we can further accelerate our charging network globally.”

Blink acquired EB Charging in April 2022 due to its reputation as an established and well-known EV charging infrastructure company with a proven track record of success. It has developed a reputation for providing outstanding EV charging services to more than 50 councils as well as to an extensive list of private clients, NHS healthcare trusts, universities, and fleets.

“Blink is committed to its mission of slowing climate change by reducing greenhouse gas emissions caused by transportation and advance EV adoption with a desire to see zero emission towns and cities everywhere,” added Miko de Haan, Managing Director Europe for Blink Charging. “Bringing these two EV charging leaders together adds to Blink’s innovation engine, and allows them to be more responsive, faster, and better equipped to deliver one of the best driver experiences around, and a market leading service for clients.”

The rebrand to Blink Charging UK includes an updated look to the existing EB Charging branded chargers, an updated look to the EV driver mobile app, the “Blink Charging – EB Go!”, and a refreshed Blink look to the website and external sales and marketing assets.

Alex Calnan, the Managing Director of Blink Charging UK added: “This work builds on the strong foundations we’ve laid over the last seven years, and aside from a fresh new look, enables us to deliver even better services to our clients and EV drivers.”
