Flo, GM expand workplace charging

WARREN–Flo, a leading North American electric vehicle charging company and smart charging solutions provider, has increased the number of EV chargers at General Motors’ Global Technical Center, making it the largest workplace deployment of Flo chargers on a single site in North America.

Under the expansion, additional Flo CoRe+ chargers and SmartDC fast chargers have been installed on the campus to help meet the growing EV charging needs for employees and visitors.

“GM’s Global Technical Center is at the heart of its engineering and technological innovation, and it only makes sense for Flo to help power its workforce, a fellow novator in the EV space in Michigan,” Louis Tremblay, Flo president and CEO. “Working together, GM and Flo are bringing even more reliable EV charging options to drivers.”

Additionally, with the Global Technical Center being part of DTE’s MIGreenPower program, these Flo units will be charging vehicles using renewable energy.

“GM has long been a proponent of advancing and expanding EV charging infrastructure,” said Kristen Siemen, GM vice president for sustainable workplaces and chief sustainability officer. “Providing additional charging solutions at our facilities that provide energy produced by renewable technology is a win-win that we are very excited about.”

The chargers were shipped from Flo’s Auburn Hills plant and are engineered to be durable and weather-proof. Flo began supplying workplace chargers to GM in 2021 and to date has shipped more than 1,200 chargers to GM facilities and manufacturing sites in North America as part of the program.

“GM, Flo and DTE are on a shared journey to make EVs and EV charging more accessible for our customers,” said Tony Tomczak, DTE vice president of electric sales and marketing. “As a MIGreenPower customer, GM’s chargers are backed by Michigan-made wind and solar energy, and we are committed to expanding access to renewable energy in metro-Detroit and across Michigan.”
