FLO chargers announced the new FLO Ultra DC fast-charger will also be produced at the company’s Auburn Hills, Michigan production facility. Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer joined FLO executives at the announcement earlier this afternoon, per Investors Observer.

The new Ultra DC fast charger is the company’s latest EV charger and can charge an EV to eighty per cent in fifteen minutes. The 350 kW charger is being built to meet the stringent NEVI and Buy America Act standards in the United States. The Ultra announcement will secure the 730 jobs at the FLO Auburn Hill production facility for years to come.

FLO aims to install up to 250,000 chargers by 2028 in the United States alone. The FLO Ultra and the company’s other chargers being built at Auburn Hills will be part of that.

The Auburn Hills facility currently produces the FLO Level 2 CoRe+ and CoRe+ Max chargers, which will continue as the facility preps for Ultra production.

FLO’s Shawinigan facility also produces the FLO Ultra chargers, which will be installed in Canada and the United States.
