Following its acquisition in 2022, EB Charging is now operating as Blink Charging UK, solidifying Blink's presence in the United Kingdom and Ireland, and furthering the Company's rapid expansion in Europe
Miami Beach, Fla., St Albans, UK, March 30, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Blink Charging Co. BLNK ("Blink" or the "Company"), a leading manufacturer, owner, operator and provider of electric vehicle (EV) charging equipment and services, today announced the rebranding of 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.
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.
Farkas added: "The launch of Blink in the United Kingdom and Ireland through the strategic acquisition and rebrand of EB Charging as Blink Charging UK complements both companies' shared mission to advance EV adoption with a desire to see zero-emission towns and cities everywhere."
