EcoG is opening its US headquarters in the Corktown neighborhood of Detroit, supported by a $1.5M Michigan Business Development Program performance-based grant. EcoG is a German EV infrastructure company and said its US operations are expected to generate private investments of $14.4 million and create 45 high-wage jobs for the local economy.
EcoG has collaborated with more than 60 partners globally and said its charging stations represented a 15% market share in the European Union at the end of 2022.
Through the opening of its US headquarters, EcoG said it aims to catalyze the future growth of Michigan’s e-mobility sector, transforming the state into a launchpad that will serve the entire United States.
“Right now there is unprecedented momentum behind the EV transition in the US,” Joerg Heuer, CEO and co-founder of EcoG, said. “EcoG’s solutions are acting as the catalyst for manufacturers in the US making it simple to introduce American-built products into the EV charging market and transforming the EV charging landscape across the country. We’re excited to contribute to this next phase from our new office in Detroit. We admire Michigan’s strong drive to transform the mobility industry and are excited to collaborate with other innovation leaders out of Michigan Central. Together we transform sustainable transportation in North America into a reality.”
